STRANGEST Artifacts Ever Discovered!

STRANGEST Artifacts Ever Discovered!

From skulls made out of crystal to screaming
death whistles, here are 10 of the strangest artifacts ever!! 10. Ubaid Lizardmen For people who love conspiracy theories, it’s
a common belief that the world was shaped by ancient aliens. Or for people who watch Ancient Aliens on
the History Channel which is all kinds of confusing for people who don’t know much
about history!! Stories exist of lizards who secretly control
our society and if the Ubaid Lizardmen are anything to go by, maybe they have a point! They were discovered in 1919 at an archaeological
mound known as Al Ubaid in the historic region of Mesopotamia, Iraq. The Ubaidians can be traced back to between
4000 and 5500 BC and predate existing ideas of civilization. They built villages and towns and were mostly
farmers. It seems like they also had a thing for lizards!! Discovered at the archaeological site, were
a series of figurines depicting lizard-like humans in a variety of poses. The figures were both male and female. Not only were they wearing human armour, but
were also doing things like breastfeeding babies. Normal for human mother’s but a little disconcerting
when a lizard does it!! Some think this is evidence of unearthly creatures
who came from the skies to teach humans modern technology. Others connect the finding to ancient representations
of snakes and say that this is something similar. The truth is in the eye of the beholder but
one thing’s for sure, those figurines are weird, wild stuff! And without more context, the story remains
a mystery. 9. Giant Balls of Costa Rica The United Fruit Company is mainly associated
with fruit of course. And exploitation, but that’s for another
video. In the 1930’s they made a major archaeological
discovery while going about their business in Costa Rica. They stumbled across some stone spheres thought
to be hand-crafted by ancient civilizations… the giant balls of Costa Rica! Made from something called granodiorite, which
is very tough stuff… they range in size and weight. They can be a few centimetres long or up to
2m (over 6 feet) in diameter. There are over 300 of them in certain areas
of the country and they can weigh up to 16 tons. So you wouldn’t want one rolling over your
foot! As for what they represent, the jury’s still
out. It’s believed they were made by the descendants
of natives who were in Costa Rica in the 1500s, around the time of the Spanish Conquest. The balls have even been connected to Atlantis. However, some people believe they were formed
naturally like spheres in Bowling Ball Beach, California and that maybe ancient civilizations
used them for religious purposes. The sad thing is that over the years, the
spheres have been removed from their original locations to be used for things like display
pieces and of course lawn ornaments because people are like that! So it is hard to trace where these stone spheres
originated and/or why they were made. 8. The Genetic Disc This stone disc illustrates the development
of a human fetus. There’s just one problem… it’s over
6000 years old and in theory no-one was supposed to know what the inside of a uterus looked
like back then! This prehistoric oddity is called the Genetic
Disc and was found in Colombia. It’s 27 cm (nearly 1 foot long) in diameter
and weighs 2 kg. It was thought to come from the city of Sutatausa
though others claim it originated from under the ground in a 200 km-long network running
from the Ecuadorian city of Cuenca to the jungles beyond. Either way the people who made it are still
a mystery to history and were very advanced for the time. The disc is made of lydite stone which has
an unusual composition. Lydite or touchstone is hard like granite
but composed of layers which crack easily if you try and cut into it. That’s what makes the markings on the disc
so strange. It’s presumed it was created by a technique
unknown to today’s technology. The disc is the original circle of life and
they even identified the purpose of sperm thousands of years before its official definition! Who these people were, and what technology
and abilities they had has been lost. And now for the scariest artifact ever, but
first if you are new here welcome, and be sure to subscribe before you leave!! 7. Aztec Death Whistle These artifacts were found in an Aztec temple
dedicated to the wind god. At first, the clay, skull shaped items were
thought to be little ornaments but many years later, archaeologists figured out that not
only did they look creepy, but they sounded creepy too!!! They were also found in the hands of a sacrificed
male skeleton so that might give you a hint of what they were for… You’re not supposed to like the sound of
the Aztec Death Whistle. It’s thought to have been used for warfare
and while making sacrifices so when the whistle blew, it was never a comforting sound. The whistle has nothing to do with music and
is pretty terrifying. Just imagine, about to go to war with the
aztecs when you hear thousands of people screaming like this: Tribes would use this whistle as psychological
warfare to frighten their enemies. If you blow several at the same time, they
would be pretty effective. Also the frequency of the whistle has a strange
effect on your brain due to the vibrations and it is believed that this can alter people’s
state of consciousness and is supposed to put people in a trance. The Aztecs and other pre-columbian civilizations
had many noise making devices. Some were destructive, and others were used
for healing ceremonies. Several archaeologists have been focusing
on the music and the instruments they made to help bring these civilizations back to
life. After all, ancient cultures were not deaf
and mute!! 6. Baghdad Battery These days you can just go to a store and
buy a pack of tiny batteries, even though everyone complains they get more and more
expensive every year. You’d have trouble doing that with these
guys! The Baghdad Batteries are a true mystery from
ancient times and suggest that civilizations back then came up with many things, thousands
of years before we thought it was invented. German archaeologist Wilhelm Konig found these
so-called batteries in 1938 just before World War II broke out. They were 13 cm (5 inches) long and from the
outside look like a clay jar. Inside the jar is an iron rod and around that
a copper cylinder. The stopper was made from asphalt and traces
of acidic corrosion, which led Konig to think these were items of ancient electrical equipment! The exact nature of the “batteries” isn’t
clear. In fact some argue about whether they’re
batteries at all. They appear to date from 200 BC which is the
Parthian era but the design suggests the later Sasanian era. Explanations vary from a way to electroplate
stuff like jewellery to an electrified statue. There’s a theory that a load of the batteries
were placed inside a religious statue so when people touched it they got a mild shock and
would be fearful of the statue’s power. That’s a way to gain respect! If it’s true, whoever made it was pretty
clever and sneaky. But if it wasn’t used for the statue, then
what did they need electricity for in 200 BC anyway?? 5. Ancient Model Aircraft Ancient relics from past civilizations often
show things like flying carpets or winged chariots. So it makes sense some people think there
were real flying machines whizzing about the sky thousands of years ago. Apparently these artifacts are real evidence
of this. They’re called the Saqqara Bird and the
Tolima or Quimbaya artifacts respectively. The Saqqara Bird was excavated in Egypt in
1898. It’s made of sycamore and has a wingspan
of 180mm (7 ins). The Bird is thought to have been crafted in
approx. 200 BCE and used as the masthead on a ship,
though there are those who think it was better suited to the air than for the sea. In fact they believe it’s a miniature replica
of a glider used in ancient times! This idea is widely disputed because in all
honesty if you built that thing full size it would look crazy and wouldn’t be able
to fly. People have tried! Which brings us to the Tolima or Quimbaya
artifacts. They’re small, golden charm-like objects
which were found in Colombia. They’re from around 1000 CE and many similar
objects can be seen in the Gold Museum in Bogota. Like the Saqqara Bird they’re also believed
to be mini airplanes. Archaeologist believe they are early representations
of animals and not supposed to be interpreted as aircraft. 4. Crystal Skulls Indiana Jones made crystal skulls famous. But like the Arc of the Covenant or the Holy
Grail there’s a real legend behind these fascinating artifacts! Question is, are they genuine pieces from
ancient history or just a nice little ornament for your mantelpiece? A lot of them are produced even today but
there’s a particular interest in a group of around a dozen skulls that aren’t like
the others. They can be normal human size or smaller and
are either transparent crystal or cloudy quartz. Some experts think they come from ancient
Mesoamerica though of course, you guessed it, others believe they’re from an alien
civilization! One theory goes that the skulls are ancient
computers that can record the lives of people who go near them. However the presence of skulls in Aztec art
as a symbol of regeneration leads people to suspect it’s more to do with symbolism than
supernatural powers. When they were checked out under an electron
microscope it seemed these skulls had been carved using more recent techniques, dating
from the 19th century. Stranger still, they may have come from Germany,
far from their American origins and might actually be a hoax! Because they’re so freaky looking it’s
easy to assume there’s something odd about them. So far it has been hard to say. 3. Voynich Manuscript Perhaps no artifact is as strange as the Voynich
Manuscript. Found by a rare book dealer in 1912, after
who it was named, it stunned experts at first because it was full of strange images and
descriptions that appeared to be deeply weird and alien. The text was unusual as if it were written
in code, and it had many illustrations of naked ladies and plant life that doesn’t
exist. Wild stuff right? Could it have been a record of something extraterrestrial
from way back in history? Researchers nixed that theory by revealing
it was actually a copy of an ancient text that was produced in the Middle Ages. The language in the book was made up of Latin
abbreviations of medical words, relating to women’s health. There were also pictures of stuff like people
holding magnets in the bath. Might sound strange, but magnets were seen
as a way to promote good health in the 15th century. Based on this, writer and researcher Nicholas
Gibbs concluded the Voynich Manuscript was a knock off of an old guide to medicine aimed
at female patients. But the results are inconclusive. To learn more about mysterious books, be sure
to check out my video on the Most Mysterious Books in the World!! 2. Shroud of Turin One of the most famous artifacts in history
is Shroud of Turin. It’s believed to be the cloth Jesus Christ
was wrapped in when he was brought down from the cross. This sheet of linen seems to show the impression
of a man and many consider it proof of the Son of God. But is it really him, and is the cloth really
that old? This is a debate that’s been going on for
centuries. The cloth is 4.4m (14 ft) x 1.1m (4 ft) and
shows a bearded man about 1.75m tall (5’7). He’s got various wounds and the linen is
stained red, presumably from blood. The nature of the wounds look like crucifixion
marks as seen on the wrists, his side, forehead, torso and legs. The Roman Catholic Church has watched over
the Shroud since 1983. Before that, it was the property of the royal
House of Savoy who owned it for centuries. It’s found in the Royal Chapel of the Cathedral
of St John the Baptist in Turin, Italy but don’t expect to see it anytime soon. It is only on display on special occasion
and it looks like you’ll have to wait till 2025 for your next opportunity! How the image was created is not known. Some believe it’s like a photographic process
because of the way the image appeared when photographed in 1898. To the photographer’s surprise when he looked
at the negative the image seemed positive, which was really strange and spooky. What’s also strange is when it was carbon
dated the Shroud was judged as only 728 years old. So who was this man and where did this cloth
come from?? 1. Antikythera Mechanism We know that when computers were first invented
they were huge. But somehow, the ancients were able to make
a small computer thousands of years ago!! Believed to come from Ancient Greece, it’s
an early – very early! – example of an analog computer like a slide rule and is made from
bronze and wood. It was discovered in 1900 inside a Roman shipwreck
off the coast of the island of Kythera in the Aegean Sea. That’s where it got its name of ‘Antikythera’,
meaning ‘opposite Kythera’. 30 bronze gears are contained in a wooden
box and it took a long time for the find to be recognized as significant. Divers were more interested in all the Roman
coins and clay pottery found in the shipwreck. By the 1970s in-depth studies were taking
place about what the Antikythera Mechanism was. Legendary explorer Jacques Cousteau recovered
some of the missing pieces giving experts even more insight into the device. But what did it actually do? The 3400 Greek characters inscribed on the
Mechanism’s dials and rings show it’s supposed to be an astronomical clock, enabling
the user to calculate things like lunar cycles and planetary movements. Some believe you can also use it to predict
the future. Thanks for watching!What did you think was
the strangest artifact?? Let us know in the comments!! Be sure to subscribe and see you soon! Byeee!

  1. #5 Anyone can clearly see that they represent aircraft and not birds. Come on how biased are you ? I think this article is clearly not rehearsed thoroughly, or sponsored propaganda misinformation
    , because there are so many mistakes in it.

  2. This documentary have Serious mistakes “the Genetic Disc “ hahaha ,is Phaistos Disc and is Hellenic (Greek) and discovered in Crete island

  3. This video is wildly inaccurate and filled with sensationalist, click-bait pseudo-science. The shroud of Turin. Really? You should be ashamed of yourself for posting this video.

  4. 10:16 this thing is probably fake there are cases of book dealers faking books and other documents for profit some were even famous for a time before being found to be faked

  5. Some of you really have a lot of issues at home, acting like she murdered your family because she got a few minor details incorrect, while some have commented that they're not actually incorrect at all, but sourced from a different place from where you got your information…relax, it's not the end of the world

  6. well it seems clear that the #1 object can not tell the future ,cause if it could it would not have sank in a ship// lol

  7. Some of your photos do not show the place you are describing. Poorly constructed report -only for enhancing curiosity with lfalse information like CNN

  8. Vonyich manuscript:
    Plants that dont exist DO exist exclusive to rare locations, such as at Mount Roraima.
    Additionally, the Shroud of Turin only dates at 700+ yrs old because the tiny clippings investigators were allowed to sample came from a portion of the cloth which had been mended. If allowed to test the 'blood' portions i believe there would be a much more valid date.
    Im not saying it's Jesus, just saying date tested is not proof of age of artifact. And that's a fact.

  9. Was to bussy watching your videos and eating chips I didn't realize I just grabbed a cigarette but from the ash tray instead of a chip from the bowl lmao

  10. These "strange artifacts" have been know for many years. Rehashing them isn't interesting in the slightest. The next video will undoubtedly tell how the sun is hot and you cannot walk on it without protective gear.

  11. One of the biggest obstacles we self-create to our own human advancement as a species is to dismiss and devalue the experiences of our ancestors. To assume that they were so different than us. For instance, lizard people… Humans have been combining animal and humans in artistic ways since the beginning of time, for religious, artistic, and purely entertainment reasons…or have you never seen anime?

  12. Were are you getting your facts ? Like the Egyptian bird you say nothing about the fact that the wings are shaped for lift plus there was a tail wing that was on there as you can see the notch. AS FOR YOUR WORDS SAYING IT COULDN'T FLY ITS BEEN SCALED UP AS A GLIDER SND FLOWEN ABOUT 15YEARS AGO IN AMERICAN COLLEGE!
    All so its a fact that those crystal skulls are as fake as a 3 dollar bill…geeze if i was you id dig into the facts a bit more before posting part of these storys there by making all you say wrong!! And a joke

  13. Heres some fact ! Atlanta's has been right were its supposed to have been the whole time and if you dig into the math and legend's about all of it youll see for yourself that the EYE of Africa is and was ATLANTICS ORIGIN

  14. Hi. Peops. Trust me please when I say I am NOT being flippant when I state that I believe the Shroud of Turin was the result of a person `BEAMED UP` as in the Star Trek series. It is the EASIEST way to explain the serious SCIENCE behind the process that produced the SHROUD. This is the last time I will state this belief. You all take care out there.

  15. The voynich manuscript has been deciphered, and it's an ancient Turkish dialect which was only used in small regions of turkey. It's an encyclopaedia of medicinal plants

  16. if only early Roman Catholics wouldn’t have burned down the library of Alexandria, then we’d have a lot more information on ancient civilization and be much more advanced than we are today

  17. Number 8 is
    Phaistos Disc. You don't know what are you talking about, right?

  18. Sorry the dates wrong try much farther play Let's talk about Millions a million years five hundred thousand years that's the true ounces archaeologists a fucking morons I only go by what they are taught and what the LIE has been talked to them they don't know nothing

  19. Maybe the people that lived a million years ago we're smarter then us today and we just more stupid throughout the years😂

  20. And Native American Indian we're created before the flood.
    Went to the underworld, after time water reseeded. Some of the tribes, returned back up. Coming out of the Grand Canyon. (This part, on where. Which outlet they came out of.

    But some Tribes stayed

    Which everyone is call aliens.
    We live in a Firmament like God tells us.

    No one's gone to space.
    Last attempt with astronauts and a science teacher I believe and she was so excited she had to qualify and do all the testing Antoinette launched it blew up killed everyone.

    Because they brain it on a little washer but because there's a firmament there ain't no way they're going to get any further than the Dome and that was going to be televised so to keep up the charade that kill everybody.

    No attempt since.
    Buzz Aldrin came clean saying we've never gone to the moon.
    Video goes viral

  21. "Unlike the Ark of the Covenant and the Holy Grail there is a real legend behind them" talking about Indiana Jones and the chrystal skulls. When the Holy Grail in the Ark of the Covenant be someone largest Legends ever

  22. You repeat the same things over and over again every year it seems 👎👎👎
    Try something new for a change…

  23. Some kids I know, sold me an Aztec death whistle, the shape of a skull, they had 3D printed… It's brilliant!

  24. Could the stone balls you've featured @ 2:30 have been used for exercise among giants? We often see Atlas holding a large ball as if resting upon his shoulders.  I don't know, but I would think working out with a heavy sphere like weight would be the ultimate workout using about every muscle group on the body.

  25. 7:17 It was used for electroplating gold to surfaces. There's no other way to make gold stick to surfaces. They knew this.

  26. #9. Those balls are flintsones bowling balls. Haven't you seen Fred play? That's how you learn history. Twinkle toes.

  27. The comment about the sicara bird is incorrect. It was built and tested in a wind tunnel and it was a wonderful glider. One exception is they had to add an upright tail fin

  28. If you go by the text of the bible he Jesus only had a napkin across his face and wasnt covered from head to toe with a shroud

  29. No 8 is the Phestos disc found in the palace Phestos in Crete 1908 (if I remember correctly) and no one knows what it says, though some have guesses about it being a prayer.

  30. These artifacts are so cool!! especially the Shroud of Turin.. it seemed so symbolic and looked a lot like what Jesus may have looked like!

  31. You are crazy… Number 8 is completely wrong… The disk you show is not a "genetic disk" . It's the Phaestus Disk, found in Crete, and it has nothing to do with what you say… I'm sure of what I'm talking about, because I 'VE SEEN the original disk, NOT in Colombia, but in Heraklion Museum in Crete, (Greece)… What it depicts is indeed a mystery, some say it's a prayer, not the development of a fetus…
    So, when you search photos for your videos, DO BOTHER to read what they show…

  32. At 10:20 she says naked ladies don't exist. Now I know that's not true. Im pretty sure I've seen one.
    Or am I crazy and hallucinating naked ladies?
    And who is the band "bare naked ladies" than?

  33. Stoopid whistle.. just now came outta a weeklong trance. Will comment later gotta change me underpants

  34. The death whistles didn't bother Cortes…. Videos show flight engineers making and flying models of the saccaro bird and the gold model planes…. The cloth samples for the carbon dating of the Shroud was stupidly taken from a section that was repaired in the Middle Ages.

  35. Actually they made a scale model RC plane exactly to the gold artefact design and it flew!! Looked crazy but flew. Google it or YouTube it!!

    Great film, careful what you claim xx

    Better films available! Mystery history II !!!!!!!

  36. There is a recent development with the Voynich Manuscript.
    A Turkish engineer used ancient Turkish to translate some of it.

  37. The carbon dating of the shroud was mistakenly done on material used to patch it after it was burned in a fire and not the original material.

  38. The death whistle is just that one SJW screaming chick with the black beanie on after DT won the election.

  39. Baghdad batteries give proof to what I was saying about an ancient but highly advanced culture in the region of Baghdad, niveh, where those pyramids were found in Egypt n the hanging gardens!!! Try to see why so advanced, because they were always visited n them became too advanced and were taken off the earth, it happened twice, teo different nationalities of middle eastern people, advanced themselves so much, that they couldn't be left on earth, they did not believe in wars, killing, but advancing their minds n they United completely in peace, no criminality at all!! So they couldn't be allowed fo continue on earth n both races were taken off the earth, the first one, then another race found what they left and continued with what they left behind n advanced even further n they disappeared also. Then something happened an I believe they tried to destroy that area, and just covered it all up, do no one would find it!!!

  40. I'm going to quit watching your video's because after you cherry picked negative information on the Shroud of Turin, you wont get many subscribers.

  41. Katrina’s channel is highly entertaining! However, this particular video reminds me that its educational value is on par with SpongeBob. But then, I always did love a ridiculous tabloid story! So keep up the great work professor Square Pants! I’m a fan!!!

    (Ex. #8 “genetic disc” is actually Phaistos disc, which references embryonic development exactly 0 times).

  42. 6 & 1 the only ones I agree to be simply amazing technology from people of that time reading through ancient manuscripts there are others
