Scientists and archaeologists are making new, incredible discoveries all the time about the history of Earth’s civilizations. Here are some of the most important--and the most bizarre--findings.

3. Lead Books Found in Jordan
In 2008, 70 books--or codices--were uncovered in a remote cave in Jordan. The pages are crafted of lead and appear to be almost unreadable, bound together on rings. To an outside observer, they may not look like much, but this was a find that could change the way ancient Christianity is studied and maybe even how we perceive Jesus Christ himself. Through rigorous testing, all 70 books were determined to be genuine and date to the first century AD, making them 2,000 years old. The books reference the apostles John, Peter, and James as well as the earliest mentions of Jesus Christ--even including a portrait of him. The writings in the codices suggest that Jesus was not beginning a new religion; rather, he was continuing a thousand-year-old religion begun during the time of King David, a religion that worshipped a God who was both male and female. One of the book has seven seals, matching the description of a codex mentioned in the Book of Revelation. These are the earliest known Hebrew-Christian documents, which means they could provide valuable information for those practicing Christianity, Islam, or Judaism.
2. The Library of Ashurbanipal
It is said that this was the library which inspired Alexander the Great to build the great library of Alexandria, all of which has been lost. This library, however, sometimes called “the first library” or “the oldest library” in the world, still exists and 30,000 tablets of literature, medical texts, and more have been recovered from its shelves. The library dates to the 7th century BC and is today located in northern Iraq, near Mosul. During its time, it would have been located in the ancient city of Nineveh, the capital of Assyria in Mesopotamia. Ashurbanipal was motivated to create the library because his childhood education allowed him to learn to read and write, as he was not originally expected to take the throne. During his reign, Mesopotamia expanded to include Egypt, Babylon, Persia and Syria. For this reason, the texts included in the library are of incredible significance to understanding the history of these places. Finally, among the tablets found in the library, is one that nearly everyone is familiar with: The Epic of Gilgamesh, which is considered one of the earliest great pieces of literature.
1. Gobekli Tepe (teep)
The discovery of this temple in modern-day Turkey is an incredible archaeological find that could force scientists to rethink the timeline of human civilization as we know it. The temple has been carbon-dated to be around 11,000 years old, having been constructed around 9600 BC. Civilizations as we know them, with beginnings in Egypt and Mesopotamia, did not begin until around 3000 BC, about 5000 years ago. But this temple was clearly built with care and a ton of hard work, supposedly with the intention of making it a place of worship. The temple consists of two 10-foot pillars in its center, decorated with carvings of animals and more identifiable icons. Bones at the temple suggest there were once sacrifices here. The temple then goes outward in rings, with more pillars inside each ring. The building of this temple would have predated writing, pottery-making, metalworking, and according to previous estimates, organized worship. The mystery of the site continues as crude Neolithic tools were found, which were made of flint. But how were such tools used to carve pillars that weigh around 40-60 tons? And how did they move these pillars to the site of the temple? The questions continue, but one thing is certain: The discovery of this temple could lead to incredible answers about the evolution of society.
ugh It all means nothing. We are not to be anything more than a flake of dust. Otherwise there would be no death, war, or past civilizations. But do keep your "bibble" close, for when the next apocalypse comes, you will have a ready supply of shit tickets. You question the words of the mighty jimmy?
Maybe number 1 could be lights? I heard that back in the day they used crystals to create illumination. Something to do with the crystaline structure. I heard about them just never seen them so not really sure if thats them
The programme has two errors we actually have not traced the Voynich manuscript to Rudolph just hearsay given by its discoverer so amongst most scientists consider it a forgery.The Chinese soldiers at Shang Hua Dis’tomb were moulded not carved they were moulded and actually some soldiers were repeated the heads were separate from the body for ease of design and make.
The # 1 11,000 yr old find was NOT a religious site! It was a WHOLE TOWN ! Whenever archaeologists can't pinpoint a discovery's TRUE PURPOSE they always fall back onto "religious site!" as an explanation! And that site is supposedly OLDER THAN 11K yrs! And there is NO WAY that site was carved out using bronze age tools only! ET's were involved in the final precision layout and ventilation shafts and tunnels that were made!
Hmmm, self-proclaimed, self-taught "archaeologist" stumbles across a find that could rival the Dead Sea Scrolls. I know this is just YouTube click bait, but real students of antiquities believe they are fake https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-20492489 As does the Jordan government, which says the lead is old but the inscriptions are meaningless http://www.jordantimes.com/news/local/jordan-codices%E2%80%99-proven-fake-%E2%80%94-doa Sadly, if the forger used old lead, he probably destroyed a real relic to make his five minutes of fame. This channel shouldn't be praising his forged discovery as an important "find."
From the Wikipedia
“The Jordan Lead Codices, (or the Jordanian Codices), are a collection of codices allegedly found in a cave in Jordan and first publicized in March 2011. A number of scholars and a November 2012 regional BBC News investigation have pronounced them fakes. In December 2016, a radioactivity test performed at the University of Surrey's Ion Beam Centre confirmed the old age of the lead used, but not the inscriptions. As of 2017, both the Israeli antiquities authority and the Jordanian archaeological department regard them as forgeries.”
I find it amusing that the DIFFERENCES between the dead sea scrolls text and later texts are skipped over. The fact there are differences proves the long held dictum that the more copies of a document are made over time the more errors creep in. Thus we can theorise since the dead sea scrolls are themselves copies they will also have errors.
great video. Also, barely made the news, but the OLDEST settlement in North America was discovered on the West Coast of Canada last year. Pre-dates the pyramids. nbd. search it online or watch the clip here....https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RAg1VXfKIKk&feature=youtu.be&fbclid=IwAR2jpfrG6FDlUtbL1cdhkbT5hObiuTTZhCrgXYt4KOiz2qoaf16P0KYlFxk

Wife of Japheth - 'Adataneses
What wisdom did Darwin have?
Jeremiah 8:9 The wise will be put to shame; they will be dismayed and trapped. Since they have rejected the word of the LORD, what wisdom do they have?
sadly you published in 2017, but both the Jordanian, Israeli and English investigations declared them fakes ... the lead codices are now regarded as fakes : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jordan_Lead_Codices
Not 1500 years ahead of its time, but rather just more advanced than the primitive Europeans. European Arrogance knows no boundaries. As a point of reference for advancement and a standard of technology, Europe has throughout history been lagging behind. The mechanism was not ahead of its time but exactly in its time.
No matter what you or anyone says, nobody on this planet knows with certainty that there is _any_ deity. Conversely, no one knows that there isn't. Anyone who claims to is plain wrong, that *is* a fact.
