I already knew about the 'Baghdad Battery' but there's some really interesting finds here too.

Really interesting stuff. I'd ever heard of the Yonaguni strcuture. I wonder if the reluctance of the mainstream scholars to investigate them further is that if proven to be man made they would wreck the traditional view that Civilisation started out in Mesopotamia spawning the Abrahamic (religious) culture?

i.e Christianity, Judaism and Islam may fight each other to the death, but when their Abrahamic Root is threatened they all band together and try to protect it.

Maybe not a hoax Kriss, The stuff they are made of may be thousands or millions of years old,but may have been carved or formed by man at a later date. And the dating system may be out,I had a friend whos father worked at manchester Museum carbon dating the mummies there.He said they could date one at 4000 years old then go back the next day and do it again and it would come back 3000 years out.

Mind you that was in the '70's so dating procedures may have come a long way since.

But things like the Coso artifact which was found inside rock,how do we not know that this may have been volcanic rock that formed around man made items while molten? therefore,do we date that rock from when it was molten or when it was really formed?

It's a very interesting subject.

They do have a pretty good idea when the ice caps melted - unless you're suggesting they built the whole thing underwater (highly unlikely) ;)

I agree it is JLP but for me the evidence would have to be amazing to convince me. Proof of visitors , 'shipwrecked' or passing through would be a massive watershed in our understanding of the universe.

Not so much an ancient artifact but the crystal skulls are fascinating objects along with their story.
