~ The Klerksdorp Spheres
Over the past several decades, South African miners have found hundreds of metallic spheres... Each of these spheres have three precise parallel grooves around its equator, which indicates that they were manufactured. And even if it is conceded that the sphere itself is a limonite concretion, one still must account for the three parallel grooves. In the absence of a satisfactory natural explanation, the evidence is somewhat mysterious, leaving open the possibility that the South African grooved spheres found in a mineral deposit 2.8 billion years old were made by intelligent beings.
~ The Antikythera Mechanism
In 1900, Greek sponge drivers discovered an astonishingly intricate mechanism in the waters off the coast of Antikythera, an island near Crete . The Antikythera mechanism was originally housed in a wooden box about the size of a shoebox with dials on the outside and a complex clockwork assembly of gears inscribed and configured to produce solar and lunar positions in synchronization with the calendar year. By rotating a handle on its side, its owner could read on its front and back dials the progressions of the lunar and synodic months over four-year cycles. The device has been estimated to be accurate to 1 part in 40,000. It appears to have been built about 2,000 years ago, but no one is sure where the technology came fromů
~ The Terracotta Warriors
The Terracotta Warriors are thousands of perfectly preserved life-sized statues of Chinese emperor Ch'in Shi Huangdi; they represent only a small portion of the eight thousand strong underground army buried in front of the Emperor's tomb (221-207 BC) to defend him in the afterlife. The main tomb is still to be excavated... but what has been unearthed so far is quite elaborate.
~ The Phaistos Disk
The disk of Phaistos is a very important example of hieroglyphic inscription from Crete and was discovered in 1908 in a small room near the depositories of the "archive chamber", in the north-east apartments of the magnificent Minoan Palace of Phaistos, together with a Linear A tablet and pottery dated to the beginning of the Neo-palatial period (1700- 1600 B.C.). The disk [with hieroglyphic inscriptions carved on both sides] is at least 3,700 years old and has yet to be deciphered...
~ The Map of "The Creator"
This seems to be impossible... Scientists of Bashkir State University [Republic of Bashkortostan, Russian Federation] have found indisputable proofs of an ancient highly developed civilization's existence. The mystery in question is about several stone slabs found in 1999, each [weighing about one ton] with a picture of the region done according to an unknown technology. These are actual three-dimensional relief maps... layered in the firmest dolomite [base], diopside glass and calcium porcelain [top]. The map [displaying the Ural Mountain region as well as three identifiable rivers] contains civil engineering works: a system of channels with a length of about 12,000 km, which include weirs [powerful dams]. Not far from the channels, diamond-shaped grounds are shown, whose destination is unknown. The map also contains numerous inscriptions. At first, the scientists thought that it was an Old Chinese language. But it turned out that the inscriptions were done in a hieroglyphic-syllabic language of unknown origin; so far, scientists have not been able to decipher it. (Now here's the impossible part...) Based on preliminary testing, the age of the map appears to be about 120 million years old...
~ The Dropa Stones
In 1938, Chinese archaeologists discovered strange stone disks in a remote mountain cave... in the Baian-Kara-Ula mountains on the border that divides China and Tibet... and they may contain "an incredible message"...
~ About Stonehenge
Also known as "your one-stop Stonehenge spot"... with information on everything from how old it is, to who built it... and what it has to do with archeo-astronomy. An interesting site... shedding a little light on an ancient megalith.
~ Legendary Times
An ezine format covering many topics on ancient times... and ancient technologies. Especially interesting is the "Daily News" column [in the Current Events section].
~ Atlantis Rising
This is a wonderful site if you enjoy archeology and ancient artifacts... I stumbled upon it when I was looking for info on the intriquing "spheres" at the Klerksdorp Museum in South Africa... Be sure to also check out the books by editor J. Douglas Kenyon, Forbidden History and Forbidden Archeology. Facinating books!
~ The Ica Stones of Peru
Visit this site for info about the approximately 15,000 pre-Columbian artifacts - the ancient carved gliptolithic rock-library known as the Ica Stones.
~ Code Of The Ancients
An interesting site... dealing with an ancient system of numbers called "Gematria". The authors provide evidence which indicates that ancient sites around the world are very precisely positioned on a global coordinate system in relation to the position of the Great Pyramid at Giza.
~ Awareness Quest
Awareness Quest researches and catalogues information on Archaeological Anomalies in Australia. They want to preserve Ancient sites including Pyramids, Stone Circles and Petroglyphs from destruction and denial.
~ Nabta Playa
Nabta Playa is an internally drained basin that served as an important ceremonial center for nomadic tribes during the early part of the Holocene epoch. Located 100 km west of Abu Simbel in southern Egypt, Nabta contains a number of standing and toppled megaliths. They include flat, tomb-like stone structures and a small stone circle that predates Stonehenge and other similar prehistoric sites by at least 1000 years.
~ Underwater Pyramid at Yonaguni
There are artifacts and structures under the oceans that attest to the fact that highly technological civilizations were living on the earth prior to recorded history. This site will have you looking very closely at the photos...
~ Ancient Alphabets
A 5000 year old alphabet has been found on six global continents... Translations and grammar suggest a global human culture thrived in antiquity. You will enjoy this link from the ViewZone web site... by author, Gary Vey.
~ Giza Power
If you're anything like me, AND have studied everything you can get your hands on about the Great Pyramid of Giza
then you absolutely MUST read the book by author Christopher Dunn, "The Giza Power Plant". It is one of the most amazing - and accurately researched - books I have ever read! For the first time in my personal research, I have read something that actually makes perfect sense.
~ Satellite Discoveries
Satellite Discoveries was created with the goal of analyzing Satellite imagery for the use of Archaeological Discovery. There's some very facinating stuff here... specifically intriguing are the very similar "triangles" found all over the globe (many under the oceans) through satellite imaging.
~ The Mitchell-Hedges Skull
The most widely celebrated and mysterious crystal skull is the Mitchell-Hedges Skull, for at least two good reasons: First, it is very similar in form to an actual human skull, even featuring a fitted removable jawbone. Most known crystal skulls are of a more stylized structure, often with unrealistic features and teeth that are simply etched onto a single skull piece. Second, it is impossible to say how the Mitchell-Hedges skull was constructed. From a technical standpoint, it appears to be an impossible object which today's most talented sculptors and engineers would be unable to duplicate. [NOTE: Out of the dozen or so surviving crystal skulls, this is the only one that has some extremely strange properties.]
~ The Shift of Ages
According to an ancient Mayan Calendar, we are living in the last days of a great cosmic cycle known as the "Long Count." Traditionally, this is labeled as the Death of the Fourth period of the Sun and the Birth of the new, Fifth Sun. The Maya keep accurate and detailed records of cosmic cycles, Earth's transitions and extreme changes in civilizations' collective consciousness. Indigenous traditions and world religions as well as Platonic philosophy view the current phase of existence as a harbinger of radical adjustment in our perception of reality. The birth of the 5th Sun signifies a "Shift of the Ages."
~ Robert M. Schoch
Dr. Schoch has been quoted extensively in the media for his pioneering research recasting the date of the Great Sphinx of Egypt using geological analyses, as well as for his work on ancient cultures and monuments in such diverse countries as Peru, Bosnia, and Japan.

~ The Sphinx Mystery
In The Sphinx Mystery, Robert Temple with his wife Olivia address the many mysteries of the Sphinx. He presents eyewitness accounts, published over a period of 281 years, of people who saw the secret chambers and even went inside them before they were sealed in 1926--accounts that had been forgotten until the author rediscovered them. He also describes his own exploration of a tunnel at the rear of the Sphinx, perhaps used for obtaining sacred divinatory dreams.
