  3. Mounds of Krakus and Wanda: Earthen Mausolea of Legendary Polish Aristocracy?

    On a visit to Krakow there are some remarkable earthworks to behold. Of the four that exist, two are fairly modern, being built in the 19th and 20th centuries. The other two have much more age to them, but as yet there is no agreement as to what this might be. Arguments range from 500 BC to the Middle Ages.

  5. The Miracle of the Sun, 1917: Ancient Angels at Fatima? The Possible Common Origins of Star Gods

    If the apparitions which are said to have been witnessed at Fatima in 1917 had taken place centuries earlier they might have been described as Fairy encounters or visions of spirits and demons.

  8. The Glozel Controversy – Amazing Historical Discovery or Elaborate Hoax?

    The discovery of a cavern filled with artifacts in Glozel, France in 1924 was an astonishing find. Initially brought to light by a farmer plowing his fields, the cavern yielded more than 3,000 artifacts over the course of 6 years. The artifacts quickly became a great source of controversy when experts began to debate their authenticity. To this day, the Glozel artifacts are still controversial, as there has never been a universal acceptance as to whether they are authentic.

    Before the Persian Gulf existed, when the last ice age caused the ocean level to drop 90 meters (295 ft) below our current sea level, “100,000 km (62137 miles) of land in this part of the world was exposed for almost 60,000 years.” It created an oasis, that “housed a rich mosaic of freshwater springs, river floodplains, mangrove swamps, lakes, marshes and estuaries.“ A veritable paradise.

  16. Mysterious Map Emerges at the Dawn of the Egyptian Civilization and Depicts Antarctica Without Ice – Who Made it?

    On a chilly winter day in 1929, Halil Edhem, the Director of Turkey's National Museum, was hunched over his solitary task of classifying documents.  He pulled towards him a map drawn on Roe deer skin. As Halil opened the chart to its full dimensions (two feet by three feet wide or 60 X 90 cm) he was surprised by how much of the New World was depicted on a map which dated from 1513.

    Well-represented in artifacts found in museums and private collections, the Liao Dynasty rose and expanded as the Tang Dynasty dwindled in power. This was the first state to control all of Manchuria. Founded by nomads, this empire was defined by the tension that arose as its rulers decided when to follow traditional Khitan social and political practices and when to incorporate Chinese customs. Liao statuary art, music, and poetry had a major impact on subsequent cultures.

  19. Java Man and the Discovery of the ‘Missing Link’ in Evolutionary Theory

    The second half of the 19th century was an incredibly exciting and contentious time for exploring the origins of human kind. Darwin’s theory, ‘On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection’ had been published in 1869 and caused an uproar of controversy. It seemed at odds with the Christian account and debate of new ideas coming from the scientific community now reached fever pitch. Could this radical new challenge to the religious creationist line possibly be right?

  20. The Adena Giant Revealed: Profile of Prehistoric Mound Builders

    In the 1800s, reports began to surface of the discovery of very large skeletal remains in the burial mounds of North America.
