The Ancient Egyptians called the people at the source of the Nile their ancestors. This is in the famine stelle.
Might have something to do with all of those Afro-pics.
Ugh. The Qing Dynasty is not "ancient." This is not an "ancient" sword. If anything, it's an early modern, or Late Imperial sword. Can we please stop throwing the word "ancient" around as if it refers to anything earlier than a century or two ago?
Now the 3000 year old blade? /That/ is an ancient sword.
Bummer to hear about the offenses the detectorist wracked up. Some of these laws are kind of silly to me. But, my goodness, what an awesome find!
This isn't difficult to sort. Just take lots of pictures round the edge of the crevasse from lots of different angles. It will always look like a face if it was manufactured to look like that.
There is no conceivable reason to believe that anyone / any group would go to that much effort so that one person would see a mildly consternated and partially obscured face... at that specific point in the day when the shadows are just so (at a particular time of year), to no real end. Would love the chance to see it, though.
Anyone can edit the Wikipedia - - why not insert some reliable sourced material to dispute the current position at Wiki ?
I do not buy any of this Santorini theory at all! Current remnants of Atlantis are the islands of Azores. Check Google Earth images. The island was massive, existed in the Atlantic, just like Plato had placed it. Unfortunately also existed on very active volcanic area, it's fate was sealed.
I WOULD LOVE TO LEARN ABOUT THIS SOUNDS SOOO AWESOME NEVER KNEW I WAS RAISED COGIC
It has eyebrows. If we can carve presidents and horses in mountains, why is it so hard to believe that an ancient people could also carve images into rock?
This is obviously a case of paradolia and not some First Nations sacred site. Though it may turn into one eventually.
The question is: how would any ancient sculptor be able to do this? He (or she) would need pitons, rappelling ropes and other modern mountaineering gear to just get to the cliff face (pardon the pun). Then the artist would have to have metal tools of a hardness that could chip away at the rock and leave the sharp edges it has.
Nope, this is one good example of paradolia and nothing more.
It’s pretty asymmetrical. If it is mad-made, which I doubt, it wasn’t made to a very high standard as far as megaliths go.
There seems to be another face below that one, a bearded man in profile facing left. And a female’s nose and lips to the upper right. It’s entirely possible that these were man-made since we do not know everything about ancient people.
i guess there was only 1 photo taken
I want to clarify that the Turtle "Statue" in Marcahuasi Plateau seems genuine.
It looks like a genuine carving, unlike Marcahuasi "statues". I hope that experts can reveal the fact soon. By the way, am i the only one who thinks this "carving" resembles Sub-Saharan Africans?
Can we purchase the full translated version online?
There’s something about a sword! Such potent symbols tied up with so much of our mythology and folklore.
Many thanks for the article! I’m sure you had trouble limiting it to just ten swords!
Doesn't it resemble Miley Cyrus face? Just a guess. :p
Hi, I just found this site. I am a freelance writer interested in science and especially astronomy and what is going on in the heavens. I write for three parenting/family websites and have a blog. Hope to get to meet some of you, read your work and submit some of my own.
Hi, newbie here. I am a freelance writer currently living in Florida. I am interested in science, especially astronomy and what is going on in the heavens.

Actually, the author of the link you posted made a common mistake. The Bible is NOT the oldest written history on record. Written records of the Vedas are far older.
Ancient Origins seeks to uncover, what we believe, is one of the most important pieces of knowledge we can acquire as human beings – our beginnings.
While many believe that we already hold such knowledge, our view is that there still exists a multitude of anomalies and mysteries in humanity's past that deserve further examination.
We therefore wish to foster an open community that is dedicated to investigating, understanding and explaining the origins of our species on planet earth. To this end, we aim to organize, support and even finance efforts in this direction.
Our aim is to move beyond theories and to present a thorough examination of current research and evidence and to offer alternative viewpoints and explanations to those currently held by mainstream science and archaeology.
Come with us on a journey to explore lost civilisations, sacred writings, ancient places, unexplained artefacts and scientific mysteries while we seek to reconstruct and retell the story of our beginnings.
