The Jesus Boat is also famously known by the name “The Jesus Boat.” It holds historical significance to the Jews as this shows them the type of boat that was used by their ancestors for fishing and transportation in the 1st century. It was discovered on the northwest shore of the Sea of Galilee in Israel in 1986.
Even with the name “The Jesus Boat,” there were no other scraps of evidence found that point to this boat is the one used by Jesus and his disciples. During a drought, the waters in the Sea of Galilee receded, which caused The Jesus Boat to be discovered.
Hagar Qim is a megalithic temple complex that is located on the Mediterranean island of Malta. Not only was the architecture very impressive, but it also contained a lot of decorative pottery and statues. The whole temple complex was built around 3,600-3,200 BC.
Animal bones found in the Hagar Qim temples suggest that they were also used for ritual sacrifices. Because of its very old age, the temple's limestone suffered severe damage due to weather conditions. To prevent further damage and conserve the site, a protective tent was built over the whole thing in 2009.
Pompeii was buried under four to six meters of volcanic ash after the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 AD. All of Pompeii was lost after this explosion, and the ruins remained buried for 1,500 years before being rediscovered. What is surprising about this archaeological discovery is that the whole city was preserved due to the lack of air and moisture.
There are pictures available on the internet that shows Pompeii’s inhabitants in the exact position that they were in when they died. The whole city was excavated, and plaster was used to recreate and preserve the voids in the layers of ash that once held human beings.
The Gobekli Tepe was discovered in an ancient city in southeastern Turkey by Klaus Schmidt. It is made from very large carved stones that are believed to be as much as 11,000 years old. What is amazing about this discovery is that the prehistoric people who built it had not yet even developed metal tools at the time.
It is composed of more than 200 huge stone pillars that are arranged in 20 circles. Each of these stone pillars has a height of around 20 feet and weighs as much as 20 tons. It is believed to be the world’s first temple.
The Voynich Manuscript was handwritten on animal skin or vellum, using an unknown writing system. Tests conducted on this manuscript have shown that it may have been written during the early 15th century, during the time of the Renaissance.
Many experts, including professional cryptographers and code breakers, have studied the written text in an attempt to understand the meaning hidden away in the strange lettering. However, until now, no one has ever been successful in doing so. This led many to think that the text in this manuscript does not really mean anything and was a hoax.
