The study of history is filled with mysteries and unanswered questions. Archaeologists in North America have found evidence of cover-ups involving artifacts found in Native American burial grounds. In 1934, an alleged 31-foot skeleton was discovered in India, but no information was released about it. Intentional destruction and natural disasters have resulted in the loss of many historical records, including the destruction of the Library of Alexandria, cultural sites, artifacts, and knowledge due to cultural assimilation or extinction. Stone tools made by hominids 3.3 million years ago were the earliest artifacts relating to humans, with Homo sapiens appearing in Africa 2.5 million years ago. The discovery of the oldest Homo sapiens fossils in Morocco in 2017 has rewritten the history of our species.
The giant shafts found near Stonehenge in June 2020 are a significant breakthrough in understanding the prehistoric landscape around the monument. These shafts were likely dug around 4500 years ago and served as a boundary or marker for a sacred area. The exact purpose and builders of Stonehenge are still a matter of debate, but the most widely accepted theory is that the builders were the beaker people, a culture that spread across Europe during the early Bronze Age. Recent excavations and research suggest that Stonehenge was a gathering place for people from all over Britain and possibly even from the continent. It is thought that the monument was built over several phases, with each phase representing the beliefs and practices of the people who constructed it.
The Anasazi civilization, also known as the ancient Pueblo people, lived in the southwestern region of the United States, including present-day Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and Utah. They were known for their elaborate cliff dwellings, intricate pottery, and advanced agricultural techniques, but also for their mysterious disappearance. There are several theories as to why the Anasazi vanished, such as a long-term drought, internal conflicts or external attacks from neighboring tribes, violence and fortifications at some Anasazi settlements, or internal conflicts or external attacks from neighboring tribes.
The Lady Lover Bond's disappearance has become a popular legend. It was a three-masted wooden schooner built in 1784 in England, and legend has it that the captain was in love with a woman who was engaged to be married to another man, and the ship crashed on purpose. Fifty years later, a ship was found in perfect condition with sails furled, the crew's personal belongings still on board, and a table set for a romantic dinner. Theories range from piracy to bad weather.
The Orkney mermaids were a terrifying creature with long black heads and pale white torsos. It had elongated arms and clawed up on rocks or moved in dramatic waving motions. Sightings of the creature continued for years, but the last known sighting was in 1893. The shadow humanoid of Netley Castle in the south of England has been reported, and amateur researchers have attempted to capture it on film. Shadow people are a paranormal phenomenon that involves the sighting of dark humanoid shapes that lack details such as facial features or clothing. There are several theories as to the nature of shadow people, some believe they are ghosts or spirits, while others think they could be interdimensional beings. Paranormal investigators believe shadow people may be the result of negative energy or psychic residue left behind by traumatic events or emotional turmoil.
