The famous Indiana Jones is not in vain won so many films.
The profession of an archaeologist really is full of mysteries and strange, sometimes quite inexplicable finds. About the secrets of many of them, scientists can only guess — but I can not understand what lurks in the dark shadows of world history.
The headless horseman
Not only riders, and the Vikings. In 2010, archaeologists excavated a burial ground in the County of Dorset. Mass grave scare even experienced everything in the world of researchers: 54 headless bodies, even the atheist will be forced to cross. Historical investigation has led scientists to believe that they opened a terrible picture of the slaughter of the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. Last lost, and the prisoners, most likely, was executed. But here’s the catch: skull 30 soldiers were buried near the bodies. Which lost 24?
No less than the terrible find waited research group of Dr. Shklovsky. Unearthing the Roman sewer, the researchers found a huge cemetery of infants. After a while clemastine archaeologists have found the strength to sit down for the book and it turned out that the Roman law of the time allowed the man to abandon a child up to two years. Those were brutal manners.
This mystery remained in the category of the eternal. For the first time “screaming” mummy was found by Egyptologist Gaston Maspero in 1886. She was wrapped in sheep’s clothing (a symbol of sin and Vice in ancient Egypt). Since then, similar remains were found, archaeologists around the world — all with an open mouth, all wrapped in the remains of sheepskin.
In 2009, archaeologists dug up the dry bottom of a prehistoric lake in Motala and came across the foundations of a mysterious stone building, clearly ritual purpose. Then they would spit and go home — but not capable of such curious scientist. As a result, the building actually turned out to be something like the indoor altar the age of 8 000 years. On the floor were the shattered skulls of a dozen people. The eleventh skull led archaeologists in horror: inside he found parts of other skulls. But the hole wasn’t outside!
Skull pure crystal found in the jungles of Central America English Explorer Eugene Indian. No one still can not understand how an ancient civilization could so clean to handle fragile material. Sin was a “remake”, but in the early nineteenth century a similar piece of quartz brought happy as an elephant Frederick Mitchell hedges — the world-famous archaeologist, who became later the prototype for Indiana Jones.
The man from Grauballe
A unique find got a group of historians from Stuttgart. In 1998, they discovered the perfectly preserved remains of a man deep in the swamp. Cause of death accident were clear at once: the priests ripped open his throat from ear to ear. But the mummy kept your hair and teeth, scientists do not understand today.
Apparently, the vampires lived not only in Eastern Europe. The Venetians and Milanese, judging by the found remains also feared bloodsuckers. The remnants of this, for example, found in one of the canals of Venice. The alleged vampire was bound hand and foot, and his mouth was filled with cement. The amazing thing is that one of the fangs of a dead man actually differed in length and severity, the second was completely normal.
