Archeologists have found in Central America, traces of an unknown civilization

Archaeological expedition, who returned from the jungles of Honduras, announced the discovery of the ruins of the city-States belonging to the unknown science of civilization.

The expedition included scientists from the U.S. and Honduras, engineer (specialist in working with lidar), an anthropologist, an ethnobotanist and 16 fighters of the Honduran special forces, ensuring the safety of research. The ruins found in La-Moskitia region of Honduras, covered with impassable jungle. There the scientists examined and mapped the walls, squares, mounds and pyramid. These structures belonged to an unknown native American culture, which flourished in the years 1000-1400. The descendants (and the robbers) never got to the city, hidden in dense vegetation.

Scientists have discovered 52 artifacts including stone benches, murals depicting snakes and vultures, as well as the head of the “man-Jaguar”. This is probably a fragment of a sculpture showing a shaman in an altered state of consciousness. All findings were documented, however, scientists have left them in place. The city’s location is kept secret (not to be devastated by the robbers).

The history of discovery began in 2012, when a group of American archaeologists and filmmakers lidar (laser radar) spotted under the cover of the jungle La Mosquitia straight lines and rectangles. As in nature this geometry does not occur, the scientists decided that they have found the ruins of the city — and no mistake. Continue reading

Scientists have described findings that shed light on the rites of the ancient inhabitants of Siberia.

Land of the Novosibirsk region has been inhabited by people since ancient times. Here were found traces of a primitive people, the inhabitants of the medieval nomads of the iron age. Thousands of years ago there was a settlement and, perhaps, the ancient city. There was a developed trade network, representatives of different peoples exchanged goods and technologies, fought and organized unions. Some of the findings of scientists from the Novosibirsk Institute of archaeology and Ethnography of the Russian Academy of Sciences shed light on mystery stories, some create new puzzles.

So, in one of the graves of the Siberian warrior was discovered broadsword, rolled three times. According to the Deputy Director of the Institute of archaeology and Ethnography SB RAS, doctor of historical Sciences Michael Shunkov, when the life of a warrior it was a normal weapon with a length of about one meter. After death the body was burned, broadsword, according to the customs, also killed, shattering it.

Many interesting discoveries were made during excavations in the boneyard “Tartas -1” Vengerskom in the area. To date studied more than 600 funerary complexes. Found that people here lived from vremennaia and before the iron age. Most likely, they were different nationalities. This is indicated by a different treatment of the bodies. Found graves with the remains of a body, and with traces of cremation – more recent and complex ritual. Many graves are accompanied by additional burials.

For example, the burial of the person – apparently, the noble warrior is adjacent to two graves of horses. Some graves were plundered. As archaeologists believe, perhaps it was the attempt of his contemporaries to belittle the status of the deceased, outrage over his memory. Continue reading
