The article features some of the ancient mysteries that are still unsolved.
We travel to discover and while travelling, we find a lot of strange objects, caves and mysterious structures. Strange things happen all the time and have been happening since the world began. From the unsolved mystery of the screaming mummy to ever burning lamps, the world is full of mysteries and some have still remained unsolved even thousands of years later. The discoveries might remain unsolved because they seem to defy science and reason, empirically.
Here are some of the unsolved mysteries from around the world:
The Screaming Mummy
A mummy with an agonized expression on his face was discovered in the year 1886. Since its discovery, the expression on his face has been the object of gossip. There have been many conspiracy theories such as two people caused the expression on his face. One was possibly involved in a personal relationship with the victim and able to ensure the preservation of the body, while the other was the actual murderer. Another theory says that the victim was buried alive, poisoning or cold-blooded murder.
During the Middle ages, lamps that burned without using fuel were discovered all over the world and were placed and sealed inside the tombs. It was widely believed that the lights would guide the dead to the afterlife. Many years later, when the lamps continued to burn, the superstitious people tried to destroyed them. Many other people blamed pagan priests for the phenomenon, while others blamed the Devil or just refused to believe lamps could burn for an unlimited amount of time. It was also believed that electricity was discovered and preserved inside the lamps.
Ancient Structure Underneath Sea Of Galilee
11 years ago, in 2003, scientists accidentally discovered a circular structure underneath the Sea of Galilee. The geophysicist Shmuel Marco publicised the discovery almost after 10 years saying that it is pretty surprising to find Bronze Age structure at the bottom of the sea. Its age was estimated to be some 12,000 years. Most of the archaeologists, however, believe that it was situated on land and became submerged by the water over time. The scientists also found a circular shaped statue at the bottom of the Sea of Galilee by accident in 2003. The statue has a conical shape, is 10 meters tall, weighs an estimated 60,000 tons and is made from basalt. To put its dimensions into context, the structure is comparable in size to 2 Stonehenge structures.
Hidden Shoes In Egyptian Temple
Archaeologists discovered an unusual “treasure” during an expedition in Egypt in 2004. In a jar, they found seven shoes, all in excellent condition. Two of the pairs were children’s shoes, and the remaining shoes belonged to an adult that possibly had a limp. It was speculated that this “shoe jar” had been hidden deliberately more than 2,000 years ago. The shoes were said to be quite expensive.
Antelope Springs Footprint
On June 1, 1968, fossil hunter William J. Meister Sr. found a fossil which looked like a shoe imprint; the heel digging in deeper than the rest of the foot. Below the imprint, he found two trilobite fossils. The hunter believed that the person wearing the shoes had stepped onto the fossils which were almost 600 million years old. The mystery, however, was that while the shoe print clearly indicates someone standing or stepping on the trilobites, there is no evidence indicating any pressure on the trilobites themselves.
