Fragments of an ancient continent are buried beneath the floor of the Indian Ocean, a study suggests.
Researchers have found evidence for a landmass that would have existed between 2,000 and 85 million years ago.
The strip of land, which scientists have called Mauritia, eventually fragmented and vanished beneath the waves as the modern world started to take shape.
The study is published in the journal Nature Geoscience.
Until about 750 million years ago, the Earth’s landmass was gathered into a vast single continent called Rodinia.
And although they are now separated by thousands of kilometres of ocean, India was once located next to Madagascar.
Now researchers believe they have found evidence of a sliver of continent – known as a microcontinent – that was once tucked between the two.
The team came to this conclusion after studying grains of sand from the beaches of Mauritius.
While the grains dated back to a volcanic eruption that happened about nine million years ago, they contained minerals that were much older.
Professor Trond Torsvik, from the University of Oslo, Norway, said: “We found zircons that we extracted from the beach sands, and these are something you typically find in a continental crust. They are very old in age.”
The zircon dated to between 1,970 and 600 million years ago, and the team concluded that they were remnants of ancient land that had been dragged up to the surface of the island during a volcanic eruption.
Prof Torsvik said that he believed pieces of Mauritia could be found about 10km down beneath Mauritius and under a swathe of the Indian Ocean.
It would have spanned millions years of history, from the Precambrian Era when land was barren and devoid of life to the age when dinosaurs roamed the Earth.
But about 85m years ago, as India started to drift away from Madagascar towards its current location, the microcontinent would have broken up, eventually disappearing beneath the waves.
However, a small part could have survived.
“At the moment the Seychelles is a piece of granite, or continental crust, which is sitting practically in the middle of the Indian Ocean,” explained Prof Torsvik.
“But once upon a time, it was sitting north of Madagascar. And what we are saying is that maybe this was much bigger, and there are many of these continental fragments that are spread around in the ocean.”
Further research is needed to fully investigate what remains of this lost region.
Prof Torsvik explained: “We need seismic data which can image the structure… this would be the ultimate proof. Or you can drill deep, but that would cost a lot of money.”
Gornaya Shoria – The Largest “Man-Moved” Stones On Earth?
We recently shared some compelling evidence, suggesting that a number of megalithic sites, dotted all around the world, are far older than the civilisations claimed as the builders.
It seems that as modern academia has gained a stranglehold upon the education of mankind, it has wilfully ignored, and in some cases suppressed, the truth regarding many unexplained ancient ruins found all over Earth…
The pregnant woman of Baalbek for example, a megalithic stone many attribute as the largest ever “man- moved” stone, and although many stones slightly lighter, can be found effortlessly placed within ancient structures everywhere…
Academia stresses that it couldn’t be moved any further.
The same can be seen with Yangshan quarry in china, home to the largest known cut megalith in the world. Again, academia suggests that this stone was abandoned due to its size. Completely ignoring the enigmatic notches, indicating that the entire shape off these enormous rocks, had actually been carved prior to their attempted liberation from the bedrock, they insist that it was abandoned suddenly not due to unknown circumstances, but due to them not able to move them…
And although the ancient Egyptians, and better known, seagoing romans themselves, claimed ownership to many of these perplexing structures, often adjourned with impossible architecture, and clearly displaying a severe level of erosion,,, there are some sites coming to light, which have seemingly been left to the eons, never again being claimed as another’s work.
Deep within the southern wildernesses of Siberia, lies the mountain of Shoria. Rarely visited by humans, and even less frequently studied, this remote mountain however, was a few year ago, discovered to be the home of something astonishing…
Now known as the Gornaya Shoria Megaliths, their truly astonishing enormity, has made it hard for certain fields of study to even give this place a second glance, and although some of the structure now revealed to the world through photographs, clearly shows that these remarkable stone walls have indeed an artificial origin… The few funded individuals who have looked at the site, have still somehow had the audacity to claim that it is nothing more than a geological formation…
Made with stone blocks many times larger than the stone of the pregnant woman, and with them reaching high up into the heavens far above the tree lines, one has to wonder, who could have built this cyclopean wall?
When did they build it?
How did they build it?
Where did such enormous stones come from?
With such enormous structural blocks, it is no surprise that this mind-boggling structure, has survived the tests of time.
Was this enormous structure built when the climates of Siberia were much milder?
It is important to note, if as we have suggested many times, an ancient, advanced, stone-working civilisation, once thrived here on earth, many, many years ago… Many of their smaller stone structures would have slowly eroded away, until now appearing to be nothing more than geological. An convenient circumstance for funded geologists, yet not a viable explanation for a site made from 4,000 plus ton, granite blocks, thus, exceptionally resilient to the elements.
A remarkable location, one which needs serious archaeological explorations in search of remains, so we may one day ascertain the true builders of this amazing place.

Submerged “Mythical City” Found In Egypt?
We have covered many strange and unexplained things, which can be found within Egypt.
Home to undoubtedly one of the most perplexing structures on the face of the planet, it is a place which also displays erosion from an as yet, untold history, evidence of a far greater antiquity, and obviously its many unexplainable creations.
Yet there are still many amazing areas of this once flourishing civilisations home, which are yet to be told.
One such site which is currently being unravelled, is the once lost, submerged city of Heracleion.
Also known as Thonis, it was a place long thought to have been mythical, a city of extraordinary wealth, mentioned by Herodotus, visited by Helen of Troy and Paris her lover, but according to legend mysteriously buried under the sea.
Recent discoveries have in fact confirmed that Heracleion was true, not only that it existed, but diverse believe that after more than a decade of research and exploration, within the area, actually know where it is.
Successfully uncovering many of its treasures, archaeologists have been able to produce a picture of what life was like in this city in the era of its existence.
Although it was long attested as mythical, upon its amazing discovery, the same academia, immediately put forward a dating for its apparent submersion.
Stating beyond doubt, that the city disappeared beneath the Mediterranean waves around 1,200 years ago.
So far, they have discovered the remains of more than 64 ships, lots of Gold coins, Giant 16 foot statues uncovered and brought to the surface, with hundreds of smaller statues of minor gods being found on the sea floor.
Slabs of stone inscribed in Ancient Egyptian have also been brought to the surface.
Dozens of small limestone sarcophagi were also recently uncovered by divers, and are believed to have once contained mummified animals, put there to appease the gods.
Dr Damian Robinson, director of the Oxford Centre for Maritime Archaeology at the University of Oxford, who is part of the team working on the site, said, quote, “It is a major city we are excavating.
“The site has amazing preservation. We are now starting to look at some of the more interesting areas within it to try to understand life there. “We are getting a rich picture of things like the trade that was going on there and the nature of the maritime economy in the Egyptian late period. There were things were coming in from Greece and the Phoenicians.”
Another string to a once amazing civilisations bow, we will keep you posted regarding any perplexing finds.
Thanks for watching guys, and until next time, take care.

Who Crafted The 2.8 Billion-Year-Old Klerksdorp Spheres?
2.8 Billion-Year-Old Spheres well balanced within one-hundred thousandths of an inch from outright excellence have actually produced confusion amongst specialists.
They differ in size from 30– 50 mm in size and have completely concentric grooves around the center as if they were formed. Inside the tough “ shell ” some have a spongy compound, while in others it looks like charcoal.
Manufactured Artifacts, or the outcome of nature?
Called the Klerksdorp spheres, the enigmatic artifacts are thought about by numerous authors as the supreme proof of pre-human civilizations existing on Earth billions of years earlier.
Nevertheless, offered their questionable age, mainstream scholars argue they are the item of nature.
The Spheroid items discovered in Africa go back to a time when people did not exist on Earth. The secret items are elliptical fit with rough ridges around the center.
Having curious ‘style’ components on their surface area, some authors have actually argued that the enigmatic spheres are the outcome of smart style.
Inning Accordance With Michael Cremo, likewise understood by his devotional name Drutakarmā dāsa, is an American freelance scientist who determines himself as a Vedic creationist and an “ alternative archaeologist ”-RRB- and other scientists of ancient culture, these spheres contribute to a body of proof recommending smart life existed on Earth long prior to a traditional view of history puts it here.
Recommendations that Earth was occupied by various lifeforms in the far-off past, millions if not billions of years earlier, has actually produced many argument amongst scientists and authors.
Tests carried out on the spheres have actually yielded questionable outcomes.
Inning Accordance With Biblioteca Pleyades, a male called John Hund who got among the spheres took it to the California Area Institute at the University of California in order to learn more about the curious artifacts.
“ It ended up that the balance is so great, it surpassed the limitation of their determining innovation,” and these are the people who make gyrocompasses for NASA.
Nevertheless, this declaration was later on deducted by the California Area Institute which rejected that anybody informed Hund that the things had the amazing residential or commercial properties.

Inning accordance with their declaration, there have actually been “ some mistake in transmission ” which Hund had actually entirely misconstrued the info relating to these items.
The secret sphere gotten by Hund is stabilized to within one-hundred thousandths of an inch from outright excellence.
No one understands exactly what these stones are.
One NASA researcher informed Hund that they do not have the innovation to produce anything as carefully stabilized as this.
Hund stated the only manner in which either nature or human innovation might produce something so carefully well balanced would remain in absolutely no gravity.
A letter from Mr. Hund, offered by Biblioteca Pleyades provides more information about the enigmatic items:
The presence of the sphere concerned my attention ca 1977 while getting rid of threatened rock inscriptions from the website where pyrophyllite or “ wonderstone ”, as it is frequently understood in the area, is mined on the farm Gestoptefontein (significance plugged water fountain) near the little town of Ottosdal about 110 km from Klerksdorpin South Africa ’ s Northwest Province.
I was interested by the type of the spheres, grooves around the middle and that they are as tough as steel, while the product (pyrophyllite) where they are discovered, is as soft as limestone with a count of just 3 on the Moh scale. As you most likely understand, pyrophyllite (Al2 Si4 O10(OH) 2) is a secondary mineral and the deposits were formed by a procedure of sedimentation. On Gestoptefontein volcanic activity was accountable for the forming of outcrops differing in height from about 10 to 100 meters. The smooth and reasonably soft surface area on the slopes were perfect for the ancient occupants (San) to make their inscriptions of animal and abstract styles.
On Gestoptefontein these outcrops were “ swan ” into substantial pieces by methods of twisted steel cable televisions running zig-zag on wheels for a number of kilometers. These blocks were then sawn by the very same technique into more workable pieces of about 500 x 500 mm. Periodically the “ sawing cable television ” got stuck on among the metal spheres embedded in the pyrophyllite.
They differ in size from 30– 50 mm in size and have completely concentric grooves round the center as if they were formed. Inside the tough “ shell ” some have a spongy compound, while in others it looks like charcoal.
When just partially embedded so that they can be seen on the surface area, they are not all spheres, however some are likewise oblong in type.
Andries Bisschoff, a previous teacher of the University of Potchefstroom argues the curious items are limonite concretions.
Inning accordance with research study carried out on the spheres, they are discovered in pyrophyllite a secondary mineral which is rather soft.
The spheres have a fibrous structure in the interior with a shell around them.
The spheres are extremely tough and inning accordance with scientists, it is almost difficult to scratch them.
Inning Accordance With Roelf Marx, manager if the museum of Klerksdorp, South Africa, the spheres are more difficult than Steel.
