ARCHAEOLOGISTS DISCOVERIES THAT SHOCKED THE WORLD



Take an expedition with us around the world to discover the Earth’s most shocking archaeological finds.

1. Vampire Graves



Many bodies were exhumed in Bulgaria with iron rods impaled across the chest. Archaeological remains show that the corpses date back about 700 years. This discovery proves that in Eastern Europe, there was a strong belief in the existence of vampires, just like witches in Western Europe and America.

The discovery was made in the ancient temple of Perperikon, near present-day Sofia. The inhabitants believed that vampires would not be resurrected from the dead if buried with a stake in their hearts. Dozens of people were killed because they were accused of eating human blood. More vampire graves were found, their residents were buried without a head.



2. Piri Reis Map

In 1513 Ottoman admiral and cartographer Piri Reis compiled a world map depicting continents and coastlines with some accuracy which were thought to be undiscovered at the time. Most notable, the map depicted the continent of Antarctica (discovered in 1818) as it was hundreds of years earlier



3. The Mount Owen Moa

A frightening discovery of what appeared to be a monster’s claw was found in the caves of Mount Owen in New Zealand three decades ago. The dinosaur-like claw belonged to a 3,300-year-old mummified upland moa, a prehistoric bird.



4. Alien Skulls

In 1999 multiple alien-like skulls were unearthed in a small Mexican village. The site contained 25 human burials, 13 of them had deformed elongated skulls, much like Hollywood depictions of aliens. The skeletons were however human.



5. Shroud of Turin

The controversial Shroud of Turin is a linen cloth which bears the image of a man many believe to be Jesus of Nazareth. The cloth first appeared publicly in a French exhibition in 1357. Three carbon dating tests were performed on a corner of the cloth in 1988 dating the item between the years 1260 and 1390.
