17 Amazing Secrets of Prehistory

1. Great Pyramid of Khufu, Egypt

The Great Pyramid of Khufu in Egypt is composed of 2.3 million huge stones, each weighing an average of 2.5 tons, and the largest one weighs 250 tons.

Its geometric dimensions are very precise. Its four faces face the southeast and northwest. Its height multiplied by 10^9 is equal to the distance from the earth to the sun. Multiplied by 43200 times it is exactly equal to the distance from the North Pole to the equatorial plane. Its circumference multiplied by 43200 times is exactly equal to the circumference of the Earth’s equator.

Its site is exactly on the meridian of the earth, and the small hole in the pyramid faces Sirius. The longitude line passing through the pyramid just divides the ocean and land on the earth into two equal halves. The base area of this pyramid divided by twice the height of the tower is exactly the famous pi; the entire pyramid sits at the center of gravity of each continent.

2. Nuclear reactors two billion years ago

Two billion years ago, in what is today the African Republic of Gabon, there was a large chain nuclear reactor that operated for many thousands of years. Oklo is the name of a uranium mine in Gabon, Africa. From this mine, France obtains the uranium it needs for its nuclear programme.

In 1972, when the uranium ore from this mine was transported to a French gas diffusion plant, it was discovered that the uranium ore had been used and its uranium content was less than 0.3%, lower than the natural content of 0.711%. It appears that the uranium ore has already been used in a nuclear reactor.

The French government announced the discovery, shocking the world.

3. The Sphinx on the Kisha Plateau, Egypt

The Sphinx on the Kisha Plateau faces the east. According to the latest astronomical and geological analysis, its construction age may be much older than archaeologists’ previous estimates.

If it was really built in the Khafre dynasty of Egypt and was eroded by wind and sand, then other limestone buildings of the same period should also have been eroded to the same extent. However, none of the buildings in the ancient dynasty had the Sphinx eroded. Severe degree.

Since the 3rd millennium BC, there has not been enough rain on the Kisha Plateau to cause erosion of the Sphinx, so it can only be explained that these traces are leftover from a long time ago when there was a lot of rain and high temperatures on the Kisha Plateau.

4. The theater of ancient Greek civilization

Ancient Greek civilization left many amazing relics, one of which is the Theater of Dionysus, which can accommodate 15,000 people and has good acoustics.

Although it is an outdoor theater, in the center of the stage, even if you speak quietly, you can still hear it clearly in the audience. This kind of superb design technology cannot be achieved by modern humans.

5. Crystal Skull of Honduras

In 1927, a crystal skull was discovered in what is now Honduras, and its age is estimated to be around the time of the Mayan civilization.
This pair is made of high-purity transparent crystal, no different from a human skull.

Its crystal skull does not leave any traces of the use of tools, and is a complete crystal carving.
The hardness of crystal is about 7 degrees. It is impossible to use an ordinary knife without leaving marks on the crystal. When a laser light is shined on its nostrils, the entire skull emits light.

Therefore, scientists speculate that the interior of the skull has a reflective effect from a complex lens. It is difficult for our modern technology to reach this level.

6. Babel’s Tower of Babel five thousand years ago

Located in the ruins of ancient Babylon, the Tower of Babel was built 5,000 years ago. It is 91 meters long and 91 meters wide. It is made of huge stones, has seven floors in total, and is hundreds of meters high. The ancient Greek historian Herodotus also recorded such a Tower of Babel in his writings. When he visited the city of Babylon in 460 BC, he saw the abandoned Tower of Babel.

According to his description, the Tower of Babi has a solid main tower, about 201 meters high, with a total of 8 floors. There is a spiral passage outside, which goes around the tower and reaches the top of the tower. There are seats halfway up for resting. Herodotus recorded that the base of the tower is about 90 meters on each side, and the height is also about 90 meters.

He also recorded that “there was a large temple built on the Tower of Babel, with a large exquisite couch inside, gorgeously furnished, and a golden table next to it.” Herodotus’s record roughly described the majestic Tower of Babel. The majesty is depicted.

7. 4,000-year-old megaliths in Britain

There are many megalithic structures left in various countries in Western Europe, among which the megalithic complex on the Salisbury Plain in southern England is the most spectacular and difficult.

The tall boulder fence that was supposed to be erected was composed of boulders 4 meters high and weighing 25 to 30 tons. Its majestic appearance suddenly appeared in the completely empty wilderness without any obstruction.

It is generally believed to be 4,000 years old. It has been proven that the megalithic group was built by relying on high-level civil engineering technology. The megaliths used were sourced from places 33 kilometers and 200 kilometers away, and can only be achieved using modern transportation.

According to scientists, the boulders cleverly contain a lot of astronomical knowledge.

8. The 1,000 giant stone statues of Easter Island

Easter Island is located 3,700 kilometers offshore from the coast of Chile, with an island area of approximately 120 square kilometers.

About 1,000 giant stone statues were found on the island. The heads of the statues are unusually large, and their ears are long and hanging down from the top of their heads. Their arms are also long and hanging close to the body. Their mouths are in a straight line, and their faces are facing each other. looking into the distant space.

Most of the stone statues weigh about 20 tons and range in height from 3.5 meters to 4.5 meters. The largest one is about 10 meters high and weighs 90 tons. Among the unfinished stone statues, there are still stone statues twice as large as this.

Some of the stone statues also wear hats made of red volcanic rock. It is more difficult to put these hats on the stone statues than to make the stone statues themselves. At the same time, there are eyeballs made of white coral stone on the stone statue.

According to research, all the giant stone statues came from a quarry in another part of the island. In addition to the stone statues, other relics have been found on the island, including wooden boards inscribed with hieroglyphs resembling Oriental scripts.

9. Great Lighthouse of Alexandria

The Great Lighthouse of Alexandria, listed in Egypt as one of the eight wonders of the world, is a huge white marble building that stands more than 150 meters above the sea and was originally 16 stories high.

There are many megalithic buildings like this in the world, and it was not until the 20th century that modern humans mastered the construction technology necessary for such tall buildings.

10. Textile technology 27,000 years ago

American archaeologists have discovered that as early as 27,000 years ago in the Paleolithic Age, primitive people who made a living by hunting invented textile technology. They were able to use looms to weave hats, clothes, baskets, nets and other items.

According to the “British Archeology” magazine, the archaeological community has previously believed that textile technology only appeared about 5,000 to 1,000 years ago, that is, after the beginning of agricultural civilization. Dr. Olga Sofer of the University of Illinois and her colleagues said they analyzed more than 90 Paleolithic pottery fragments found in the Czech Republic and found textile impressions on them.

These traces show a variety of fiber weaving techniques, including tangled, plain weaving and other weaving methods. Among them, plain weaving must be done using a loom. It can be seen that the primitive people during the hunting period already had sophisticated textiles, instead of only wearing animal skins as people originally imagined.

11. Metal ball 2.8 billion years ago

In terms of smelting technology, miners discovered hundreds of metal balls on the Cleek hillside in South Africa, and the strata where these balls are located are estimated to be about 2.8 billion years old.

The grooves surrounding the iron ball are so delicate that experts in iron-making technology believe it is difficult to explain them as being formed by a natural process.

12. Metal vase from 600 million years ago

On June 5, 1852, “Scientific American” reported under the title “A Relic of a Bygone Age” that in the 600-million-year-old Precambrian rock formations in Dorchester, Massachusetts A metal vase was discovered, which is a zinc-white alloy that was determined to contain a large amount of silver.

13. Iron pillars from four thousand years ago

The one erected in the memorial tower temple in New Delhi, India is about 7 meters high, 49 centimeters in diameter and weighs about 6 tons.

The ancient iron pillars, which are estimated to be at least 4,000 years old, still show no signs of rust, and phosphorus, sulfur, and wind and rain erosion have no effect on them.

This is because 99.72% of the composition of this iron pillar is formed by extremely high-level iron-making. It is impossible for modern humans to achieve such high-level iron-making technology.

14. Prehistoric geography

In terms of geography, the coastline of North and South America was marked on the map drawn by the Turk Haki Ahamad as early as 1559 AD, but it took two and a half centuries for travelers and mapmakers to discover the Americas. .

In addition, there are also records about America in ancient Tibetan documents dating back 3,500 years.

The coastline of the Antarctic map drawn by the Turk Orange Phenaeus in 1532 AD is very similar to the modern Antarctic map. In addition, it also accurately depicts the shape of the Antarctic continent before it was frozen 8,000 years ago.

Modern people only know the terrain under the Antarctic ice in 1958 AD through surveys that penetrated the ice.

15. Prehistoric astronomy

Ancient humans had very rich astronomical knowledge, such as the astronomical knowledge hidden in the discovered Egyptian pyramids and the Sphinx, the Mayan calendar, the astronomical knowledge of the mercury-rich people in Africa, and the astronomical calendar of the Tiahuanaco ruins in South America. , artificial moon and so on.

It can be seen from the interpreted ancient calendars that the astronomical knowledge they possess is quite accurate.

16. Mayan Calendar

The Mayans were a nation with a high degree of scientific civilization that existed in history. This mysterious nation once lived in the Yucatun area of present-day Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and other places. Archaeologists believe that the Mayans had an extremely splendid civilization.

For example, the modern accurate measurement value of the solar year (that is, a year in the general sense) is 365.2422 days, but the ancient Mayans knew that the length of the solar year is 365.2420, which is only 0.0002 days less than the accurate number; similarly, in the Mayan concept, the moon orbits The Earth takes 29.530588 to complete one revolution, while the modern measurement is 29.528395. The Mayans calculated the synodic period of Venus to an accuracy of only one day every 6,000 years.

17. Modern astronomical knowledge of African mercury-rich tribes

There is a tribe called “Dogon” in Africa. In their ideological concepts, they have a very detailed understanding of Sirius from a long time ago.

Sirius is so difficult to observe that modern humans didn’t get the first photo of it until 1970.
