With archaeology, we are able to take a peek into the past. Ancient texts, though revealing, often times are subjective, written by conquerors and victors, skewing the facts to make themselves appear in a more positive light. But ancient relics, buried deep in the ground by time or people, tell a more complete story of what happened hundreds, if not thousands of years ago.

TopTenz Simon, this video was truly interesting! I had never heard of most of these discoveries, so I learned something new, whilst enjoying your video, as well!
Of course, if I were to be truly honest, I should admit that I could listen to you all day long! I rather enjoy your accent (it’s not an accent that’s ever heard where I live in America).
So, thank you for giving me the opportunity to not only learn new things, but to enjoy your absolutely awesome voice, as well!! 😁
Just a note... The terms Aboriginal and Aborigine are used differently. Eg. When referring to someone it's either 'He/She is Aboriginal' or 'He/She is an Aborigine', also 'Aboriginal culture and history' or 'The history and culture of the Aborigines', 'The Aboriginal people' or 'The Aborigines'. Referring to Aborigines as Aboriginals is not correct.
Naive. There are never less than 5 major conflicts going on at any one time TODAY,
and yet, whenever a body is found to show signs of violence, archeologists are AMAZED that it might just be evidence of ancient warfare.
The Franklin Expedition were sighted by Americans after departure from London and before they entered the Arctic waters. They were sighted by and even spoke with Inuit hunting parties multiple times between 1845 and 1848. The last contacts/sightings were in 1848 by the Inuit.
I really enjoy your videos but I find your commentary speed to be too intense. Not sure if you're trying to keep up with photos but it's a bit too much, but your popular so what did I know? I can keep up because I speak quickly but if I were ESOL I wouldn't follow at all....
About the HMS Terror. There is something more gruesome to it. They found the Mumies from 3 of the Seamen. Whit Open Eyes. If you want to see one search John Torrington. If you are easily scared i dont recommend it. I have seen mumies in real life and wasnt shoked but these eyes are just horrible
When a person dies the lower jaw drops open due to the fact that the muscles aren't working. It doesn't mean the person died horrifically, it just means that nobody thought to tie it shut at the time. When rigor mortis sets in, starting not long after death, the jaw then becomes difficult to close. Also, after so long in the ground, compression is at work which often breaks long bones and caves in skulls, so would it not also displace an already dis-articulated jawbone? This stuff is commonly known, why sensationalise it?
Sure, all of that is true. But while some skeletons have the dropped-open jaw due to natural postmortem factors, there are others where their position is counterindicative of those processes. In other words, archaeologists can look at more than one thing to tell the cause of death. Mentioning the gaping jaws is an easy visual for the audience to see "proof" of what they are saying. It's less sensationalizing and more just over-simplifying for viewership.
12:05 - You found the only map on the internet that shows this region but doesn't have Hungary on it. It's simply amazing how you can talk about the Carpathian basin and even friggin Danube, without even mentioning Hungary! Romania was never a vassal of anything, it always was part of Hungary (and Hungary was the vassal, to the Habsburg Empire for example, but never Austria, Austria didn't even exist as an independent country) except for a 150 year period when the Ottomans occupied Hungary but stopped at the Transylvanian border.
Here’a a question probably more appropriate for the today i found your channel: how do archaeologists decide where to dig? I picture them like Jehovas witnesses knocking door to door asking for permission to dig up your yard
Mr. Rogers was said to have died of natural causes......so why are you wearing his sweater? And all your neighborhoods are filled with dead people...Whats up with that?
I enjoy your videos...very informative and entertaining. I'll shut up now :)
+TopTenz ¿?¿WHY?¿? did you remove the comment section on the Biblical monsters video?!?¡¿¡?!? I would’ve loved to discuss any of those awesome beasts with people. Also, I could possibly get some questions answered. You should open it back up, since the video’s old now anyways.
What if the pit of death in France was just a serial killer and that was his dumping ground, the extra arms and fingers was the beginning of his terror and when torture didn’t satisfy turned to murder. Just a thought haha love the videos though!!
99% of top 5 or top 10 video hosts need to watch this man. This is how you speak. He's politely spoken (not an American accent) passionate yet mild mannered and always does his very best with pronunciation and paces himself nicely. I never feel like it's to long nor to quick. This is how it's done! He even makes new videos to correct old videos when new evidence is found. Definetly my favourite to watch and hear
Feh. The discovery of war in hunter gather societies before the Agrarian Revolution is only a surprise simply because the Academy has filled up with ridiculous Rousseauean Marxists who continue to pine for 'the peaceful Golden Age of Man' before 'Western Greed' destroyed their better natures: a myth you continue to seek to perpetrate.
Even a brief glance at South American Hunter Gatherer tribes showed ALARMING amounts of violence, with casualties of up to 2% per year (i.e. tribes without the benefit of agriculture to foster greed). And WHY did they seek to kill their fellow man? Land. Hunting Grounds. Women. I.E. GREED that you feel came as a result of wheat. What nonsense!
And just to put a fork in this kind of nonsense, those women captured after the massacre of the men in those tribal wars...they didn't actually join the tribe CONSENTUALLY, did they? So what do you call a person FORCED to go where they do not wish to go, and forced to perform acts which they do not crave? (Hint...starts with a S...ends in a LAVE)
The Aboriginal instead of a victim of colonialism it was the OG 'black on black' crime. Those bodies in Turkana, more black on black crime. Better let the Southern Poverty Center know so they can track those racist statistics.
