10 Mysterious Archaeological Discoveries That Still Remain Unexplained
In this day and age, one would think we have it all figured out. An explanation for everything, but it turns out, we’re still trying to explain phenomena we don’t understand.
These 10 discoveries are perfect examples of the odd things found on earth that no one can explain.
1. Moa Birds
Moa birds were flightless birds that used to inhabit New Zealand, which became extinct around the year 1500. They were killed off, according to one theory, by the Māori people. During an expedition in the twentieth century, scientists stumbled across a very large claw from one of the birds which had somehow been incredibly well preserved for centuries.
2. The Temple Complex of Saksaywaman, Peru
The perfect stonework of this ancient temple complex, which was completed without the use of a single drop of mortar, is truly amazing. In some cases, it’s impossible to pass even a piece of paper between the stones. Every block, moreover, has a smooth surface and rounded corners. How was it constructed? No one knows.
