Ancient Relics That Are SO Advanced They Shouldn't Exist

Without all the useless electronic technology we have today, the ancients were able to come up with some pretty impressive things that might blow your mind. Certain things we thought of in the past

10. Lycurgus Cup
This photo we see here shows the Lycurgus Cup which was created in the 4th century AD by the Romans. What’s strange about the cup isn’t just the depiction of the mythical King Lycurgus being wrapped in vines but the mysterious glass that was used to create it. Depending on which way the light is hitting it, it changes colors. This seems to be a luxurious roman object that was recovered from a sarcophagus and was even eventually acquired by the Rothschild family, mysteriously enough. It was sold to the British museum for 20,000 pounds in 1958. Fine particles of gold and silver were added to the glass that would ultimately help it change it’s colors, according to some theories. What’s even more fascinating about this cup is that it appears to be the first example of nanotechnology and these metallic particles are spread only 70 nanometers across and cannot be seen with an optical microscope.

9. The Gold Encrusted Dagger of Stonehenge
Just half a mile from stonehenge, what was believed to be the original “jewels of the King of Stonehenge” were found. This priceless relic from the past is extremely well detailed and the studs were thinner than a hole in a threading needle. The overlapping fish scale design took an incredible amount of time to create, with over 140,000 tiny gold studs, and would have been fit for only a king to enjoy. What’s even more astonishing is the period in which it was created. With this being made 4,000 years ago and using microscopic particles of gold; it’s quite impressive.

8. King Tut’s Meteorite dagger
King tut is known for his remarkable tomb but one thing that might get overlooked is his meteorite dagger! The only other dagger found on him was made of gold. Boring. What leads archaeologists to believe that this is dagger is from outer space, is that the iron was an extremely rare substance to come across during the bronze age and it’s abnormally large nickel concentration.How could this be though? Iron smelting didn’t even exist in egypt until about the 6th century BC.. Researchers at the Polytechnic University in Milan in the 1970’s, had inconclusive results originally but taking advantage of new technology, they decided to test this theory again. The blade closely matched elements found in meteorites containing mostly iron, but cobalt and nickel as well. What else might we discover from this young man’s tomb?

7. Maine Penny
An 11th century Viking coin was found on the coast of Maine which seems to support direct European contact of American soil. If you haven’t destroyed your history books yet, it’s believed that this coin was used for trade among the Native Americans and tribes of the area. Imagine Viking longboats sailing across the shores of the present day united states. The coin was found in a known Native American settlement called Naskeag Point and you have to wonder what other places the vikings may have travelled to. Could this be evidence we need to declare that the Vikings made it further west than Greenland.

01 - THE VIKING SWORD, ULFBEHRT Richard Furrer, a modern blacksmith with access to some of the most advanced blacksmithithing tools of today, recreated this sword, some 1,100 years later after its creation, and said, it was the most complicated thing he's ever created... And he utilized methods that would have not been known at the time of its origin, between 800-1,000 A.D.
Archeologists are baffled in its mere existence as it predates the very technology required to forge the blade, and wouldn't be available until the time of the industrial revolution, 700 years later.
Its carbon content was found to be three times higher than other swords of that period. With that much carbon density the sword would've had to have been forged in a fire of at least threethousand degrees Fahrenheit, a capability the people of the period simply didn't have. 02 - NIMRUD LENS It is well known that our ancestors were well versed in the science of Astronomy, but the Nimrud lens could prove their knowledge was elevated beyond what
was first thought. This 3000 year old hunk of rock crystal was discovered in the palace of Nimrud by Sir John Layard in 1850. Its estimated time of origin is between 750-710 B.C., and was proposed to be part of a larger telescope the Assyrians used as a tool to study the stars.
The lens was ground down to fit the size of a lapidary wheel in which it was mounted. If scientists theories are found true, the Assyrians would have Galileo beat to the first telescope invention by 1000 years. 03 - ANTIKYTHERA MECHANISM Often referred to as an analog computer due to its capability to calculate solar years and lunar phases with pinpoint accuracy, the full purpose of this ancient Greek device is still unknown to scientists. At first glance of this bizarre contraption, alien or advanced technology may come to mind -- a contribution to the mystery that still shrouds its true identity. Due to its gear like features, something that the ancient greeks wouldn't have understood, scientists believe it was part of a larger device and only played a small role in its functionality. If just a portion of this mega machine has been discovered and is considered an analog computer, what could the larger portion be considered? A question scientists have been trying to answer since its discovery off the coast of the island, Antikythera in the 1990s. 04 - 2,000 YEAR OLD BATTERIES In 1938, just outside of Baghdad,
Iraq, German Archeologist Wilhelm Konig entered a dig site to discover numerous clay , each filled and topped with asphalt and pierced with an iron rod. Upon further investigation, scientists realized each .
was capable of generating, holding, and discharging more than a volt of electricity. Considering no other site has ever been discovered, it has been surmised that the site is unique in its technology, and far more advanced than anyone at the time could have imagined. What these ancient batteries could've been used for remains a mystery, but scientists can't imagine a practical use for that type of energy in the time period other than as an experiment.
05 - ANCIENT EGYPTIAN LIGHTBULB In a crypt under the Temple of Hathor in Egypt, a strange engraving into one of the walls bares a strange resemblance to a modern lightbulb. In the engraving a crowd of people surround the object, possibly praying to it, deifying its existence into the cold sand-stone of the Hathor Temple. Erich Von Däniken, author of Chariot of the Gods, intrigued by its capability and purpose, successfully modeled one and produced a working replica. When connected to a power source, the object emitted an eerie, violet light. What power source the Egyptians could have used to power these object however, remains a mystery. 06 - KLERKSDORP SPHERES
Some say the shape and fine etched grooves in these mineral spheres are a natural phenomenon, while some are not so convinced. Their strongest argument is the precision of the lines, mathematically perfect in their spacing. One of the greatest mysteries surrounding these strange globes are their hardness, harder than steel, and at 2.8 billion years old, no tool would have been able to etch, let alone sculpt the spheres outer shell. Because so many questions have arisen with no answers, some scientists have deduced their creation to natural formation, but have no explanation as to how they could have formed and are unique in their discovery. 07 - IRON PILLAR OF DELHI

4. Roman Concrete
We all know that a lot of ancient Roman buildings are still standing today, and how is that possible, you may ask? The fact that they’re still around show that Roman concrete had some key advantages over the concrete of today. The big secret and the reason for its durability is the use of volcanic ash in the mix. The ash helps to prevent cracks from spreading. The material was used widely by the middle of the 1st century, and some Roman concretes were even able to be used underwater. This helped in the building of bridges and any other type of waterside construction. Some corporations today are looking into the uses of Roman concrete and are, in the process, cutting back on their environmental footprint. Supporters of the concrete claim it costs up to 60% less due to it requiring less cement and its longer lifespan. The durability is so exceptional that Roman concrete used underwater 2,000 years ago shows little to no wear at all today. Just this thinking and producing such a high-quality, durable, environmentally-friendly product so long ago shows how advanced the Romans really were.

3. Damascus Steel
Swords were once made in the Middle East of an amazingly strong material called Damascus Steel. It was produced using raw material from Asia called Wootz steel. These blades were resistant to shattering, super tough, and able to be honed to extreme sharpness and resilience. It disappeared for a time, and metal as strong as Damascus steel wasn’t forged again until the Industrial Revolution. It took electron microscopes to reveal the secrets of the steel, and it wasn’t until relatively recently that we were able to take a look and find out just went into it. It was so strong due to some added materials, including manganese, nickel, vanadium, chromium, cobalt, milkweed, Cassia auriculata bark, and traces of some rare elements. It was shown that the combination of these elements mixed in with the source material, Wootz steel, a chemical reaction occurred, making the steel stronger and tougher. “Carbide nanotubes,” which are tough tubes of carbon, are expressed on the surface through this process, and those make the blade extremely hard and durable.

2. Coso Artifact
Found in the Coso Mountains in California in 1961, the Coso Artifact is debated over and could be evidence of an ancient advanced civilization! The owners of a gem shop went out prospecting and collected a bunch of geodes to open up back at their shop. They then cracked into a geode that didn’t contain a fossil or rare gem, but they instead found a strange, mechanical artifact. Many believe that the object is a kind of spark plug, and it contains rings of copper, a magnetic rod, a steel spring, and has a porcelain exterior. To make matters even more mysterious, there’s a white, powdery substance inside that is still unidentified. It was found to be around 500,000 years old, which was determined by the age of the marine fossils that covered its surface. Critics of the piece say that the stone that encased the artifact wasn’t a geode but a concretion, which can form over just years or decades. However, if the artifact is legitimately 500,000-years-old, it would represent a significant historical and scientific anomaly. Spark plugs were, as far as we know, invented in the 19th century, so it could prove that there were once super advanced civilizations!

History lovers and wannabe Indiana Joneses around the world dream of finding a rare and valuable artifact during their travels. And the truth is that many people who aren’t looking for something end up finding something incredibly rare on accident, or by pure luck.

However, there are other people who have been searching long and hard for recently discovered some incredible artifacts, and now we’re going to show you what they found! From an ancient Qing Dynasty Sword to a bizarre 400-million-year old hammer, check out these 10 recently discovered ancient artifacts.

10. Chinese Man Finds Old Sword in Ground, Uses it as Kitchen Knife
A 60-year-old Chinese farmer named, Yi Shouxiang, was digging on his land in Chengkou County in China Province when he stumbled across an old sword blade that had no handle. Not thinking much of it at the time, he took it home and used it as a kitchen knife for five years until one day he noticed some strange characters on the blade.

9. Thor's Hammer
No, we’re not talking about Mjolnir, the very powerful and mythical hammer which Thor used to protect Asgard from the Frost Giants. Instead, this small artifact is a Viking amulet in the shape of Thor's Hammer which dates back to the 10th century.

8. Pensioner Finds 2,300-Year-Old Pure Gold Crown Under Bed
An elderly English man who decided to remain anonymous really had a stroke of luck when he re-discovered inherited treasure in the form of an authentic Greek gold crown in a cardboard box under his bed! He had inherited the box from his grandfather, and saw the crown long ago, but didn’t think it had any value, so he didn’t pay any attention to it.

7. 1,000-Year-Old Viking Sword Discovered
Some discoveries really do just land in your lap as Árni Björn Valdimarsson found out in 2016 when he and a group of friends went hunting for geese and instead found a 1000-year-old Viking sword laying on the sand completely exposed.

6. Ancient Texas Hammer Found ‘Embedded’ in Rock
There are few ancient artifacts that cause a bigger debate than the legendary ‘London Hammer’. The hammer was found in a tiny little town called London, located in Texas, USA, was found embedded in rock. But here’s the big mystery; the rock that the hammer is stuck in is over 400 million years old!

5. Religious Artifacts Found Alongside Bones in Attic Maybe Relics of a Saint
Mr. Williston of St John, New Brunswick, Canada made a remarkable discovery while cleaning out his attic one night in 2015. Alongside the usual family heirlooms, unused furniture, and Christmas decorations he was shocked to discover bones, some jewelry, and many other strange trinkets.

4. Roman Swords
Big time discoveries are really a dream for archeologists both amateur and professional alike. So, the chance to work on an excavation site at the Roman Fort of Vindolanda, just south of Hadrian's Wall, was a dream come true for archaeologist Sarah Baker. She, along with other volunteers, helped to unearth a previously unknown barracks at the site in 2017.

3. Viking Shield
In 2008, Danish archaeologists who were digging 60 miles or so outside of Copenhagen found a stunningly well-preserved Viking shield, which is believed to be around 1,000 years old! Archaeologist Kirsten Christensen was understandably excited upon discovering it. The reason it was so well-preserved is that of the moist soil and sediment that covered it keeping oxygen out which causes things to decay.

2. Amazing Discovery Found in the Sand Could Rewrite Australian History
Those who know Australian history no doubt know that Dutchman Willem Janszoon is credited with the discovery of Australia when he landed in North Queensland in 1606, around 160 years before Captain Cook! However, a discovery of some copper coins on Wessel Island by a patrolling soldier in 1944 may just rewrite that history!

1. Grandmothers Ming Dynasty Style Plate Sells for Nearly a Quarter of a Million Dollars
We all know that grandmothers have a love of pottery, porcelain, and fine china. And what most people don’t expect is to be left a porcelain plate by their grandmother which is worth over $265,000 thousand dollars!

10. Damascus Steel
Damascus steel refers to two different types of iron-based materials that can be identified by the watery pattern on the surface that is produced by the controlled manipulation of the iron and steel. It originated in India and the Middle East, and was first known to the Europeans in the 3rd century through trading with Damascus. What was noticeable about this method of making steel, and therefore blades for swords, was that it was much stronger and more flexible than traditional iron. Those who wielded a Damascus steel sword were much feared, because it was quite a mighty weapon.
While, today, there are production processes that make steel far stronger than Damascus steel, it was still ahead of its time and practically impossible to replicate today. It was made by adding precise amounts of other compounds into the steel as it was being hammered, and these became part of the molecular structure of the substance. It was a perfected technique, and one that is simply impossible to reproduce without the know-how of those who invented it in the first place.

9. Ferlite Watch
In 1912 a discovery was made in a London cellar that would become known as the Cheapside Hoard. It’s the largest collection ever found of Elizabethan and Jacobean Jewellery! Full of gemstones, necklaces, rings, and cameos, everything deserves to be admired.
The gemstones come from all over the world and it shows technical skills and cutting styles that jewelers today still don’t know how to replicate since they were passed down from generation to generation.
One item in particular really stands out- the Ferlite watch, named after the jeweler who created it. It’s so meticulously crafted that it had a calendar, an alarm, and scrolling decoration. Forensic analysis of the watch has shown that incredibly advanced technologies were used to create all of the components. Experts are calling it the “ipod of its day”!
Some of the tech includes the ability to apply extremely thin films of metal to objects, with more precision than we can do today with solar cells and electronic devices. Researchers from Birmingham City University scanned the watch in detail and recreated the pieces using a 3D printer. Even though we now have the pieces, the race is now on to try and learn how it was actually made, because it could improve manufacturing processes and reduce the amount of raw materials needed to produce electronic equipment, and also help to preserve artefacts that have worn away over time.
Thanks to 3-D printing, the Museum of London now offers visitors the chance to handle this 16th century gadget! (The copy, clearly not the original!)

8. Roman Concrete
The Romans built a lot- whether it was roads, statues, or grand buildings- but perhaps the most impressive thing about the structures that they made is the fact that the concrete still holds together today, more than 1,500 years after it was mixed. This is far longer than modern versions of concrete last, and no one’s entirely sure how they were able to do this! What was the secret recipe??
Many attempts have been made to try and determine the ingredients that they used. It seems to be a combination of volcanic ash, calcium oxide, seawater, and lumps of volcanic rock, as well as leftover rubble. It was even used to build gigantic structures like piers and harbours, and actually became stronger over time. This is the key to the success of the concrete. Scientists believe that there are rare elements within it that crystallize when water seeps in and begins to erode cracks, making it tougher. By contrast, today’s concrete is designed to stay unchanged after it hardens, but the Romans have shown that there is a better way.
Further research is needed to understand exactly why it works in the way it does, but if the precise list of ingredients can be determined, it could change the face of construction forever. Buildings could be more resistant and more beautiful!

8. Buddha’s Tooth
Siddhārtha Buddha reached ‘Maha-pari-nirvana’ and left this Earth (or more simplistically died) around 483 at the age of 80. It was believed that he passed away from food poisoning and was cremated in northeast India on a pyre of sandalwood. Before the process was complete, Buddha’s disciples began arguing over who would keep portions of his ashes and bones.

7. The Foundation Stone
The Foundation Stone forms the foundation for Temple Mount, also known as the Noble Sanctuary - a place in Jerusalem that is considered highly sacred by the religions of Islam, Judaism, and Christianity. At first glance, the Foundation Stone is nothing more than a slab of limestone. However, for centuries, this seemingly inconsequential stone slab has been the site of much warfare, controversy, and debate.

6. Charlemagne’s Magic Love Ring
During his reign, it is said Charlemagne fell so deep in love with a German princess, that he forgot to take care of himself, and affairs of state. It was as if the typically bloodthirsty and well-groomed emperor had become bewitched by a supernatural force. Legend goes that a snake had gifted the King a diamond and he had it made into a ring for his princess.

5. Blood of St. Januarius
St. Januarius was a bishop of Beneventum in Italy who died a martyr around the year 305 AD. To this day, a preserved relic of his dried blood is kept in a sealed glass ampoule in the Cathedral of Naples, where he is the patron saint. On three separate annual occasions, the blood liquefies on its own while thousands of spectators gather at the cathedral to witness the miracle firsthand.

4. The Fairy Flag of Dunvegan
The most precious treasure of the Clan MacLeod of Scotland is its Fairy Flag. By all appearances, the tattered, faded-brown silk flag, which is on display in the drawing room at Dunvegan Castle on the Isle of Skye, doesn’t seem like much. Its history, however, proves otherwise. And remember, looks are often deceiving, especially when it comes to historical artifacts.

3. Our Lady of Guadalupe
This relic continues to baffle scientists, despite being the subject of extensive studies and evaluations since 1751. In Mexico in 1531, Mary reportedly appeared several times to a 57-year-old Aztec peasant named Juan Diego. Proof of his vision was imprinted on his cactus fiber cloak, or “tilma,” and the image came to be known as “The Miraculous Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe.”

2. The Lia Fail Stone
Ancient Irish kings were crowned at the Lia Fail, also known as the Coronation Stone, which is located on the Hill of Tara in County Meath, Ireland. According to Irish folklore, whenever a king of true Irish or Scottish descent stood or sat on the stone, it shouted joyfully.

1. The Cloak of Muhammed
The most prized relic of the Islamic religion is located in Kandahar, Afghanistan, at Kharka Sharif, or the Shrine of the Cloak of the Prophet Muhammad - one of the country’s holiest places of worship. It ended up there while in the possession of Ahmad Shah Durrani, the first king of the Afghan state.

7. Greek Fire
The Byzantine Empire was the most powerful economic, military, and cultural force in Europe throughout most of its existence. Founded in Byzantium, which later became Constantinople and then Istanbul, the Byzantine Empire is also known as the Eastern Roman Empire. It outlived the fall of the Western Roman Empire by 1,000 years!

6. The Ancient Rock Ship of Asuka
Masuda-no-iwafune, or “the rock ship of Masuda” is a mysterious monolith located in Asuka Nara in Japan. The area is known for its many Buddhist temples and shrines but there are actually several stone monuments in the hills that don’t fit in with any other construction and no one seems to know who built them, or when!

5. Ulfberht Sword
Archaeologists are pretty stumped by a Viking sword that has gained practically legendary status. These swords were stronger than anything ever seen before and they were lightweight, razor-sharp, and flexible. Dating between 800 to 1000 AD, these mysterious swords were engraved with the world “Ulfberht.”

4. Rongorongo Writing Of Easter Island
Easter Island is located over 2,000 miles west of the Chilean coast. The island’s remoteness helped give rise to a unique ancient culture unlike any other. To this day, researchers are still trying to unravel some of the mysteries of Easter Island.

3. Sacsayhuamán Fortress Walls
Outside of Cusco, Peru is a walled complex known as Sacsayhuamán (sounds kind of like “ woman”), which was built with perfectly-fitted, massive boulders weighing up to 200 tons each. It’s unknown when the walls were constructed, but they’re thought to even predate the Inca civilization. The complex was used as a fortress and ceremonial location.

2. Hypogeum Of Hal Saflieni
The complex of excavated chambers known as the Hypogeum of Sal Saflieni was discovered in Malta in 1902 and is the only existing example of subterranean labyrinth architecture in Europe. It was likely used as a sanctuary and/or burial site between 4000 and 2500 BC by our ancestors and may be the world’s oldest prehistoric underground temple.

1. Antikythera Mechanism
In 1900, a group of divers in the Mediterranean Sea discovered the remains of an ancient Greek shipwreck that sank sometime between 60 and 70 BC. They salvaged three pieces of bronze that later became known as the Antikythera Mechanism.

10. The Ulfberht Swords
Ulfberht swords were the weapon of choice of the Vikings, along with other tribes around northern Europe. They had a long, double edged blade, and a straight crossbar over the grip. There are only about 170 still known to exist today, each of which dates to between the 9th and 11th centuries! And the cool thing is they have the tell-tale inscription in the blade itself.

9. The Drepanosaurus
Whenever a new fossil is found, it gives further clues as to the evolution of animals, and of those that once roamed the earth. Every now and then, though, something is found that makes no sense at all in terms of scientific understanding, and requires a complete re-think of what is taken as fact. This is exactly what’s happening with a little known creature, the Drepanosaurus.

8. Rat Kings
The Rat Kings are a rare phenomena from the animal kingdom that is so bizarre, no-one is entirely sure how it happens. You may have seen one before, but if you haven’t- they really are something quite unusual. They have been a part of legend for centuries, and are formed when a number of rats become attached by the tail.

7. The Martian Meteorite
In 1984, a meteorite fell to earth, something that in itself is no unusual thing. But this one, known as ALH84001, was found to hold secrets that no-one has been able to explain. The 4.1 billion-year-old rock is thought to have originated on Mars, having been dislodged during a collision, and floated through space until it fell into earth’s atmosphere. Unlike other similar specimens, the surface of this rock had something very unusual- what appeared to be the signs of fossilised bacteria.

6. The Longyou Grottoes
The Longyou Grottoes are a series of underground structures near the village of Shiyan Beicun, in the Zhejiang province in China. They are thought to be at least 2000 years old, but scientists and researchers have no idea how they were built, what they were used for, or even who was responsible for them.

5. What was the first dinosaur?
Since we first realized that dinosaurs roamed the earth, palaeontologists have been trying to understand the full range of creatures that once lived, with particular interest revolving around which was the first dinosaur to ever live.

4. The Nampa Stone Doll
The Nampa figurine looks like any other that has been made by an ancient civilisation. The mystery surrounding this one, though, is how it came to be in the place where it was found. It was discovered in 1889 near the town of Nampa in Idaho. Workers were searching for water, and dug a well, which involved drilling a borehole to 295 feet.

3. The Piri Reis Map
Today we take maps for granted. Satellite technology combined with the work of cartographers over the years, plus Google of course, have created incredibly detailed depictions of our planet. All we have to do is use our smartphone! This wasn’t always the way, clearly, and maps from centuries ago were just kind of close approximations based on ship voyages.

2. The Voynich Manuscript
The 600 year old Voynich manuscript is often thought of as being the most mysterious book that has ever been written, and still, to this day, scientists aren’t able to explain what’s inside.

1. Dinosaur and Human Footprints
The final mystery is one which calls into question the idea that humans weren’t around at the time of the dinosaurs, because their footprints have been found side by side. The discovery was made in the Paluxy river, Texas, where hundreds of dinosaur footprints have been found. Their foot impressions were perfectly preserved by the river bed.

What If The Earth Collided With Another Planet?

Did an Ancient Advanced Civilization Exist Millions Of Years Ago?
Earth… It’s been here for a long time, quite a bit longer than us. For those of you that might need to know this one day, the Earth is 4.543 billion years old. In those billions of years, anything could have happened. Volcanic Explosions… Wars… Floods. We have survived so far, but no one knows what’s gonna happen next.

Could it be possible that an evolved human civilization, or other intelligent civilization existed long before us and could have been wiped out by some global catastrophe like the dinosaurs were? Have we yet to find the remains of some ancient and advanced civilization… Perhaps even more advanced than us? The first known traces of our human ancestors can be dated back between five and seven million years ago. That’s a lot of time for any civilization to, evolve, advance and grow.

Ancient Aliens

The possibility that ancient civilizations might have encountered or even been influenced by extraterrestrials has fascinated us for as long as we knew there were distant suns they might visit from. Today we will examine the evidence and consider the numerous scenarios form the perspective of the Fermi Paradox, to see how reasonable the Ancient Aliens hypothesis is, and ask if the evidence of UFOs visiting us in the past is credible.
