Over the past two centuries, there have been many mysterious and peculiar discoveries made in archaeology that until now science can’t explain them. It is believed that once the mystery is solved. It can turn our whole history upside down.
These mind-blowing discoveries are so unexplainable that some scientists and historians refused to make further study choose to ignore them and label them as a hoax. But the worse thing is that those who chose to try to know the truth and dedicate themselves in researching the facts are being ridiculed and humiliated by the academic community.
It’s quite understandable why these people chose not to further investigate on these eerie discoveries. They are scared on what they do not know, and maybe they already know the answer but choose to keep it from us for our own safety or vice versa.
Here are some of the mysterious and strange discoveries in archeology
1.) Antikythera Mechanism.
Dated from about 100 years before Christ, this mechanism resembles a computer and was used to calculate astronomical positions. Nothing as complex as this would be developed again until the middle ages. It is truly remarkable with its complex gears and detail.

2.) Baghdad Battery.
Several of these batteries have been found in and around the country of Iraq and date from anywhere to 200 to 500AD. These seem to suggest that our ancient ancestors knew a little about electricity before Ben Franklin’s discoveries. Most modern scientists see it as a means to electroplate jewelry but this is uncertain.
3.) Baltic Sea Anomaly.
A crew of Swedish divers scavenging the Baltic Sea for treasures has shared images of their baffling discovery — a large disc-shaped object settled on the seabed. The large circular object on the floor of the Baltic Sea has been rediscovered by Ocean Explorer divers. Ongoing investigation.
4.) Crystal Skulls.
These have been in controversy since their first discovery. While there have been several fakes now known to exist, there still remains several that appear in all respects to be ancient but show no tool marks and are not known how they were created or why.
5.) China’s First Emporer’s Pyramid.
This is one mystery that very well might be solved in the next few years. Stories tell of a river of mercury and a mini version of an ancient city with shells on the ceiling mimicking the constellations inside of the first emperor’s tomb.
While this was mostly dismissed before as myth, the discovery of the Terra Cotta army (also in the story) and heightened levels of mercury in the soil at the front of the pyramid add credence to this “story”. Hopefully, we will see this opened in our lifetime to really see what is inside the final resting place of China’s first emperor.
6.) Small Ancient Flying Machines.
There have been several of these small metal objects found that seem to show modern aircraft in striking similarity. Explanations have been offered from children’s toys, someone’s imagination, a flying fish, or actual ancient flying machines either made by the local population or seen in the sky by them.
7.) Dinosaur and Human Footprints.
Strata from the Earth depicting fossils of both dinosaur and human footprints. While most of these have been proven over time to be hoaxes, there are still a small number of samples that continue to raise questions.
8.) Radioactive Human Remains.
Found in two Ancient Indian/Pakistan Cities. The two cities are Harrapa and Mohenjo-Daro. Strange as this sounds but the radioactive level of dozens of bodies and melting, fusing and crystallizing of bricks and surrounding materials actually indicate a nuclear bomb or some kind of blast explosion. Today, scientists know of no other ways this damage could have been caused by other than a nuclear weapon.
9.) Cocaine and Tobacco Residues.
Found in Egyptian Mummies. Of course, this is impossible if you subscribe to the idea that there was no transoceanic contact between Africa and South America in ancient times. South America is where the cocoa plant is only grown and tobacco while grown elsewhere is found here too.
10.) Ancient Plumbing and Piping in China.
Located in a inhospitable location for humans to live on Mt Baigong, China, there have been found hundreds of pipe that reach from caves to the lake below and also more pipes in the lake itself. Nobody has any idea how or why these were made.
11.) Giant Balls of Costa Rica.
Scientists have no ideas on who, how or why these were made but the spherical precision is incredible. Unfortunately, many have either been destroyed or the smaller ones stolen and sold illegally so only a small handful remain.
12.) Buildings with interlocking segments Puma Punku.
Engineers and scientists are still awe-struck and completely baffled by the construction of these blocks that have interlocking segments. Modern engineers have said they would not be able to duplicate these today with such accuracy as these were done.
13.) The Voynich Manuscript.
Although this manuscript has been proven to be authentic from the middle ages, nobody has ever been able to decipher it. Pictures of herbs on the pages in the manuscript have led some to believe that it is perhaps a medical book but no one really knows for sure until it is finally decoded.
Unless these mysterious discoveries were solved, we can only speculate and make a wild crazy guess on these discoveries. So I leave it up to you and make your own conclusion and reaction on these mysterious archaeological discoveries.
