Archaeologists found the true Excalibur sword stuck in a stone in a Bosnian river

Archaeologists found the true Excalibur sword stuck in a stone in a Bosnian river 86

He was married to Geneva, directed the Knights of the Round Table, wielded the Excalibur sword and, after his final battle with the traitor Mordred, was buried in Avalon. At least this is how they have explained the mythological history of King Arthur. But was King Arthur really a real person, or just a hero of Celtic mythology? Although the debate has continued for centuries, historians have not been able to confirm that Arturo really existed.

But earlier this year, everything changed. They found seven fragments of handwritten and previously lost manuscripts about Merlin, King Arthur and the Holy Grail in a library at the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom. These fragments were originally published in Strasbourg, France, and date back between 1,494 and 1,502. This surprising discovery caused all kinds of speculation, with many assuming that it was clear evidence that King Arthur existed. And if this were not revealing enough, now a newly discovered sword stuck in a rock of a Bosnian river has been considered the “royal Excalibur.”

The true Excalibur sword

Archaeologists have drawn a fourteenth-century sword from a stone that was found at the bottom of the Vrbas River, west of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The Vrbas is a river 240 kilometers long in the heart of Bosnia, just near the city of Banja Luka. The discovery has been compared to the legend of King Arthur’s magic sword due to the way it was found.

According to the archaeologist of the Museum of the Republika Srpska, Ivana Pandzic, the 700-year-old sword was discovered embedded in a solid rock approximately 10 meters below the surface of the river, so special care was needed when removing it. Archaeologists made the discovery while digging near the ruins of a medieval castle located in Zvečaj. Before the castle was destroyed in 1777, it was probably occupied by a medieval nobility who ruled the town.

“Our sword in stone … taken from the Vrbas after who knows how many centuries,” tweeted Igor Radojicic, mayor of Banja Luka, the second-largest city in Bosnia.

It is definitely a rare find, as it is the first sword that has been recovered near the medieval city of Zveča. In fact, only another sword of this type has been found in the Balkans during the past 90 years. Now experts need to discover why the ancient sword was embedded in the rock. Oddly enough, there are quite a few similarities between this new discovery of the sword at the bottom of the Vrbas river and the legend of King Arthur. We have all heard about the story of Arthur, the magic sword and the magician Merlin.

Of the many stories throughout the centuries that describe the various legends of King Arthur and his magic sword, one, in particular, has been widely discussed and is Robert de Boron’s French poem called Merlin, which he wrote at the end of the 12th century. Another famous work is called The Death of Arthur, written by Sir Thomas Malory and published in 1485.

While there have been some versions of the legend, the most popular story describes how the magician Merlin placed the sword on a large stone and announced that only the true heir to the British throne could eliminate it. Although several men tried to remove the sword from the stone, only the young Arthur was able to extract it successfully. His reign as a British king lasted from the end of the 5th century until the beginning of the 6th century.

If this is the true Excalibur sword or not yet to be seen. But what shows us is that its legend is worldwide exceptional with a narrative that has managed to stand the test of time since its appearance in medieval times. There are many versions of the story of Arturo, Geneva, Merlin and the Knights of the Round Table. But the myth of the warrior hero has endured and is an influential piece of British heritage.

Is this the true Excalibur sword? Is it another legend that comes true?

Was an Angel filmed over a house extinguished by firefighters?

Was an Angel filmed over a house extinguished by firefighters? 91

Having appeared on the network, this photo caused a lot of comments – from the fact that it really was a Guardian Angel who guarded the firefighters during work, to those who assured that all this was just an illusion, no more complicated than a cloud in the shape of a lamb.

At the end of December 2020, while extinguishing a fire in the Polish village of Maldyty, an Angel hovered over the firemen, or at least something like an Angel. This photo appeared on the Facebook page of the Maldyta fire station and generated many comments.

“This is something that was formed during the last extinguishing of the fire from the ignition of soot in the chimney in Maldyty. Write in the comments your thoughts about it,” was written under the picture on their FB page.

Poles are known to be very religious and there are plenty of people willing to comment on the picture.

Many indeed believed that the Angel oversaw the work of the firemen and, perhaps, even helped them to extinguish the fire. But there were also enough of those who believed that it was all just a random silhouette between clouds in the sky and pareidolia (illusion). The photo was taken by an unspecified person sitting in the cab of a car parked next to the burning house.

“Christians have always believed in the existence of guardian spirits. Some call them Guardian Angels. The Bible confirms their existence,” Pastor Leszek Kozheniecki told reporters, commenting on this photo.

By the way, Kozhenetskiy is a well-known Polish pastor who believes in the existence of supernatural beings.

Three years ago, he told the press that he had driven out the evil spirit that settled in his house in Turza Wielka. One of the firefighters who worked on the extinguishing of the house that night said:

“If we have this kind of protection watching over us, I am pretty calm about safety during work.”

Blogger MrMBB333 shared an image of a “mysterious creature.” It was discovered 80 kilometers off the coast of Antarctica in a remote region of Antarctica, according to the Sun.

According to the blogger, the pictures are screenshots from the Google Earth service, which were sent to him by his subscriber and conspiracy theorist under the nickname BONKERS.

They estimate the length of the remains at 3.6-6 meters.I don’t know if it was frozen for thousands of years or appeared recently,- the blogger said.

MrMBB333 believes the skeleton belonged to a dinosaur. He came to this conclusion by examining the front and hind limbs of the creature. His subscribers are sure that these are the remains of a seal.

A google search for seal skeleton images shows a pretty good match,- one of them wrote.

Other subscribers call the skeleton “suspicious”. They explain that “seals have no hind legs.” Another wrote that the remains belonged to an alligator or some other reptile.

In the comments, conspiracy theorists also expressed their opinion that “Antarctica is full of unexplained phenomena that may be related to ancient aliens.”

It is also believed that most of the “discoveries” made by users of Google Earth can be explained by the unusual shape of ice or other natural phenomena.

MrMBB333 uploaded his investigation video to YouTube on January 5. Since then, the video has been watched more than 200,000 times.

150 thousand years old Metal pipes in Tibet, contradict the official history

150 thousand years old Metal pipes in Tibet, contradict the official history 94

It is said that there is a mountain in Tibet that contains a network of special formations that extend to the nearest lake. Many researchers believe that this is an artificial pipeline system. But, strangely enough, its origin dates back to the era of the Neanderthals.

This mountain rises about 40 km from the city of Dalingha in the Tibetan Autonomous Region. It is called Baigongshan (White Mountain). In the world, it is better known for the wonderful formations that are in its heart and wide surroundings – they are called the Baigong pipes.

This miracle has been the subject of controversial discussions for many years. Some believe they are a natural formation, but there are many who are sure that someone built them in the distant past to drain the lake. They base their arguments on research results, but there is a catch; the mysterious aqueduct should have appeared 150 thousand years ago. Traces of settlements around the mountain are not even older than 30 thousand years. So who could build metal pipes inside an uninhabited mountain?

There are three caves at the foot of Mount Baigongshan, two of them have already collapsed and are inaccessible, but the largest of them has since been the target of many tourists who come to the area.

The cave looks like it was artificially created by someone. Visibility is enhanced by a massive pipe about forty centimeters in diameter that sticks out of the stone.

Another apparently hollow pipe of the same diameter ran into the cave from the top of the mountain. Another one came from the bottom of the cave somewhere below.

At the entrance to the cave, you can see several other pipes with a diameter of 10 to 40 cm. All this gives the impression of the remains of some ancient system or mechanism. About 80 meters from the cave, Lake Toson sparkles with a large number of scattered pipes on the beach.

They stretch from east to west and have a diameter of 2 to 4.5 cm, these archaeological finds are described by the Chinese scientist Liu-Shaolin:

The unmistakable rust color indicates that they are made of metal. And their craftsmanship showcases advanced attachment techniques. Who could have built such a complex pipe system? Only one who knew well what he was doing and why.

The version that such an engineering miracle was created by the Chinese disappears immediately. The inhabitants of the Middle Kingdom could not build something like that 150 thousand years ago. As the authors of many amazing inventions, bureaucracy became one of them. Therefore, it is simply impossible to imagine that such a large-scale and, without exaggeration, a great construction project was reflected in any ancient Chinese source. Any emperor, during whose reign this happened, would make sure that his great deed was not forgotten by descendants.

Baigong tubes are another unsolved mystery in human history. This find once again refutes the facts of the official history. Where is the true and where is the misconception? Maybe there will be people among the readers who will logically explain the origin of the ancient aqueduct.
