7 Mysterious Discoveries Scientists Can't Explain

3164 ratings | 288533 views
There are amazing discoveries that made the smartest scientists scratch their heads for years. These experts spend their whole lives searching for answers to some of the world’s biggest mysteries. Yet some of their findings defy logic and are still waiting to be solved. TIMESTAMPS: The Maine Penny 1:20 Gold Spirals 2:49 Alaska Artifact 3:59 Rujm el-Hiri 5:14 Mohenjo-Daro 5:56 Longyou Caves 8:51 Swimming Reindeer 1:23 #mysteriousdiscoveries #amazingdiscoveries Music by Epidemic Sound  https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - The coin was made between 1605 and 1093 during the reign of King Olaf III. But how did a silver Norse coin, the only Norse artifact discovered at the site, travel all the way to Maine? - Flemming and other researchers assumed that these gold spirals were part of a priest-king’s costume or headwear, which would have been worn during ritual sun ceremonies. - The buckle-like object had been cast in a mold with a small leather ring attached to the bar, and it was about 2” by 1”. Thanks to its leather material, the researchers were able to estimate how old the object is through radiocarbon analysis: it’s 1,500 years old. - Rujim el-Hiri is another remnant of the Bronze Age, and it dates back to an estimated 3000 to 2700 BCE. The megalithic structure is located in Golan Heights and is made from approximately 44,000 tons of basalt stones. - Mohenjo-Daro can rival the greatness of ancient Rome, though it didn’t have a “central seat of government or evidence of a king or queen” according to a National Geographic article. - The Longyou Caves in Zhejiang province, China, aren’t your ordinary caves with cavernous passages, stalagmites, and stalactites. The 2,000-year-old man-made caves consist of 36 grottoes covering approximately 32,000 sq ft. - The Swimming Reindeer is made from the tip of a mammoth tusk that is 8” long. The sculptor possessed extraordinary creativity and skill: it was beautifully crafted with great detail using only stone tools.

The spirals are shavings from a much larger project-they had intended to melt the shavings down.

jewelry making. they look like shavings from a lathe.
Kingsgambit (2 months ago)
Tbh... The spirals are probably the excess from shaving or carving gold. They were saved because... Well it's gold. Once enough was gathered they just melt it back down and make another ornament or hat. Could possibly be the first step in a melting process or making coins. The smaller amount would let the gold melt a bit faster than if it was just a big lump. ... Just my opinion though
Venerable Wyrm (2 months ago)
Jesus guys the spirals are leavings from a gold engraving. The spirals are result of running a hard sharp chisel through soft gold to make beautiful engravings. These spirals may have been kept due to the sheer size of the leavings, seeing that such cuts were removing such impressive amounts of gold it may have been novel to the engraver.

Don't the gold coils look like lathe turnings?

I think the current scientists suffer from “modern man” bias with which I essentially mean they all think that previous craftsmanship had inferior tools and methods then today available

How do we know the swimming reindeer was carved with only stone tools? They could have had metal tools or possibly it isn't as old as they think. QUESTION EVERYTHING!!!
Richard Mcginnis (3 months ago)
what amazed me was that stone henge is still mentioned as if it were built the way it is today thousands of years ago when old drawings and even a picture show it to be a square. how about telling the people who watch your videos the truth about it? show them the images from the 1920's of the "rebuild" you know when they reformed it and cemented the stones into the ground

At 4:17 a reference to climate change occurring between 800 AD and 1400 AD. With no SUVs? No fossil fuels? Could it be climate change is natural? Sacrilege!

The so called "Spirals" are shavings off material spun on a "Lathe". And by the look/color/texture was at a optimal rpm. They new what they were doing.. mathematics was required to get The surface footage per minute ratio.
Swimming whatever lol that's a explanation of a small flying machine. I've solved the riddle all the pieces fit now. Those spiral gold is part of the flying hats.

You won’t believe this but the cave in China was not built with hammer ,chisel . They were cut with the same type of tools that cut obelisks and pyramids .A tool that vaporizes solid rock! See told you ,you wouldn’t believe me

Two thousand gold spirals at one half pound each ... suggest a thousand pounds of gold. At today's values that would be roughly ... oodles lots. But I guess gold was much cheaper back then? Or could they have had some manner of practical purpose—weighing down a lady's hemline, perhaps?

Most amazing? The Chinese artificial caves. Often we're told "No trace of artificial lighting" ... yeah, right ...

These days sculptures are made for no particular reason just because the sculpter enjoys doing it.. could that not be the same 12.000 years ago?

I would think that the spirals of gold were shavings from a foot pedal Laith that were put to one side to be remelted

The carved out caves fascinated me ,the work done in ancient times is astounding on a number of levels .Planning and organisation just 2 area's we know so little about from those times.Artifacts can be collected and lost or traded, by whom and when the real mystery.

If you take a somewhat clear animal bladder or such as and fill it with fireflies and, allow your eyes to adjust to the dark (20min eyes closed). You will have enough light to paint in the dark if you hold the light near the wall as you work; old tech.

The Maine penny is interesting but no big mystery. There's plenty of legitimate evidence of Norse settlements in Greenland and the New World from the time of that penny.

Had to go back to the start of the video to check. Your megalithic structure looks suspiciously like the basalt columns of the giants causeway on the Antrim coast in n.I. the columns I believe where formed by a volcanic eruption.

The FACTS don't seem to add up. Gold coil, 1 inch long weighing half a pound...I don't think so, and the Maine penny, how can it be dated between 1605 - 1093.... doesn't make sense
Merrick J. Stemen (2 months ago)
It looks like you are also right on the Maine penny: Wikipedia states this about the Maine penny: "The Maine penny, also referred to as the Goddard coin, is a Norwegian silver coin dating to the reign of Olaf Kyrre King of Norway (1067–1093 AD)." (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maine_penny )(accessed 01/01/2019) Edit: The Wikipedia article does mention something about the date 1065, so it may have been a typographical error in the video/script the narrator read from.
Merrick J. Stemen (2 months ago)
It looks like you are right on the gold spirals; it seems they weigh 1/2 lb all together, rather than 1/2 lb each: "Thousands of tightly-wound gold wires, each about one inch long, that together made up more than half a pound of solid gold," (https://gizmodo.com/archaeologists-baffled-by-2-000-tiny-gold-spirals-disco-1717507894 )(accessed 01/01/2019)

Bit of a coincidence how the Goddard coin was found in Goddard, with the name God in it, and has a christian cross on it, how old is goddard town? I'm guessing at least as old as the coin.
