Prehistoric indian artifacts dating rihanna dating new man
However, research wasn’t continued – or at least it wasn’t made public.Discovered during the 1898 excavation of the Pa-di-Imen tomb in Saqqara, Egypt, the Saqqara bird is (as you could have guessed) a bird shaped artifact made from the wood of a sycamore tree.There is some question regarding that dating though, but here’s the kicker – according to initial measurements, the hammer itself turned out to be more than 500 million years old.Apparently, it’s so old that a section of the handle has begun the transformation to coal.The Antikythera mechanism has been labeled the first mechanical computer.Found in a shipwreck off the Greek island of Antikythera, buried under 45 meters of water it was designed to calculate astronomical positions.According to Professor Michael Edmunds of Cardiff University, who led the team studying the mechanism:“This device is just extraordinary, the only thing of its kind.
so how did the ancient Greeks, with basically no technology available, manage to build such a complex calculator? Nearby caves held traces of the ancient culture which once occupied them.
All of the artifacts presented on this website are from a single ancient settlement.
We will present the stone tools, the works of art, the crude implements, rough sculptures, problematical artifacts and everything from the site that appears to have been made or used by the people who lived here many centuries ago.
The way the mechanics are designed just makes your jaw drop.
Whoever has done this has done it extremely carefully.” He added: “…in terms of historic and scarcity value, I have to regard this mechanism as being more valuable than the Mona Lisa.”Judging by its amazing complexity, it seems fair to assume that the Antikythera has other predecessors – but none of them have been found, which makes it even more impressive.
