Scientists discover ancient rock art with paintings of whales and sharks in the desert

A remarkable scene has actually been discovered by specialists checking out the Atacama Desert in Chile as they have actually discovered numerous pieces of sensational 1,500 yewar-old-rock art, illustrating the massacre of whales, turtles as well as sharks.

In the north of Chile, situated right in between the Pacific Ocean and the start of the large Atacama Desert is the historical site of El Médano. North of it, scientists have actually found a brand-new historical site with more than 300 ancient paintings.

The historical site of El Médano includes an important set of rock paintings which were found in 1918 by an amateur archaeologist called Augusto Capdeville.

But, now, a group from the University of La Sorbonne, has actually found in the area, brand-new formerly unidentified rock art.

The brand-new website called Izcuña, situated a couple of miles north of Médano portrays illustrations which are roughly 1,500 years of ages.

There, utilizing strokes of red color, the ancient residents of the area made rock art illustrating the hung of whales, swordfish, marlin, squid, sea lion, turtles, and sharks.

All the paintings were made with a pigment of a red color and reveal the harpooned animals, however not their hunters.

Scientists describe how these searching scenes are based upon the daily experiences of the ancient residents living near Chile’s shoreline.

The very same landscapes existed in the rock art scientists found at the start of the 20 thcentury, although those paintings recreated searching scenes of terrestrial animals.

The worth of this finding is massive since it assists record how the residents of the location drawn out a big part of their resources from the ocean, as well as exactly what methods they utilized for it.

As kept in mind by specialists, the ancient residents had actually advanced fishing and searching innovations that consisted of fish hook constructed from shell, bone, cactus spinal columns, copper, as well as rafts made from sea lion skin.

As kept in mind by the Daily Mail, archaeologists have actually found around 328 paintings at Izcuña, on 24 obstructs of rock.

” Archaeological proof vouches for a society focused on marine resource exploitation. Its advanced fishing and searching innovation consisted of fish-hooks made from shell, bone, cactus spinal columns and copper, and cotton lines, internet, stone harpoons, rafts and weights made from sea lion skin,” described scientists in the research study

” This expertise and the resource-rich Pacific coast enabled the residents to be extremely efficient, consequently helping with long-term property camps situated near water springs and on natural jetties. From here, little groups might check out large areas.”

Ancient Egyptian Pharaoh May Be the 1st Known ‘Giant’

The supposed remains of Sa-Nakht, a pharaoh of ancient Egypt, may be the oldest known human giant, a new study finds.

Myths abound with stories of giants, from the frost and fire giants of Norse legends to the Titans who warred with the gods in ancient Greek mythology. However, giants are more than just myth; accelerated and excessive growth, a condition known as gigantism, can occur when the body generates too much growth hormone. This usually occurs because of a tumor on the pituitary gland of the brain.

As part of ongoing research into mummies, scientists investigated a skeleton found in 1901 in a tomb near Beit Khallaf in Egypt. Previous research estimated that the bones dated from the Third Dynasty of Egypt, about 2700 B.C.

Prior work suggested that the skeleton of the man — who would have stood at up to 6 feet 1.6 inches (1.987 meters) tall — may have belonged to Sa-Nakht, a pharaoh during the Third Dynasty. Previous research on ancient Egyptian mummies suggested the average height for men around this time was about 5 feet 6 inches (1.7 m), said study co-author Michael Habicht, an Egyptologist at the University of Zurich’s Institute of Evolutionary Medicine.

Ancient Egyptian kings were likely better fed and in better health than commoners of the era, so they could be expected grow taller than average. Still, the over-6-foot-tall remains the scientists analyzed would have towered over Ramesses II, the tallest recorded ancient Egyptian pharaoh, who lived more than 1,000 years after Sa-Nakht and was only about 5 feet 9 inches (1.75 m) tall, Habicht said.

In the new study, Habicht and his colleagues reanalyzed the alleged skull and bones of Sa-Nakht. The skeleton’s long bones showed evidence of “exuberant growth,” which are “clear signs of gigantism,” Habicht said.

These findings suggest that this ancient Egyptian probably had gigantism, making him the oldest known case of this disorder in the world, the researchers said. No other ancient Egyptian royals were known to be giants.

“Studying the evolutionary development of diseases is of importance for today’s medicine,” Habicht said.

In the early dynasties of Egypt, short statures were apparently preferred, with “many small people in royal service,” Habicht said. “The reasons for this preference are not always certain.”

Still, because the alleged remains of Sa-Nakht were buried in an elite tomb, there may have been no social stigma attached with gigantism at the time, the researchers said.

The scientists detailed their findings in the August issue of the journal The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology.

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.
