Which no matter how desperately some attempt to discredit, the evidence is clear for all to see. This category of oopart, unsurprisingly, often falls victim to theft. However, the other category, actually litters the display cases of museums all over the world. These artefacts being more easily explained away, and as such, they are often attached to a less impressive historical tale, than that which was actually experienced. Stonehenge, is perhaps the most iconic ancient site within western Europe… An ancient site that for many years, was to blame for many heated arguments between different individuals, all convinced of its past purpose. Now largely accepted to be a celestial calendar, and a meeting place for many ancient people, who came together at solstices to hold elaborate, and purportedly promiscuous festivals. However, the true age of Stonehenge, or indeed how the stones were once balanced atop one another, or the precise knowledge of celestial activities displayed, is still unknown. Although to those who study the many other, seemingly impossible ancient feats found all over earth, Stonehenge is clearly a relic of a far more ancient civilisation, than any which artefactual evidence have been found for. In 1808, William Cunnington, one of Britain's earliest professional archaeologists, discovered what has become known as the crown jewels of Stonehenge. They were found within a large Bronze Age burial mound, today known as Bush Barrow. Within the barrow, Cunnington found ornate jewellery including an intricately decorated dagger. Quote, “The very finest gold work involved the making and positioning of literally tens of thousands of tiny individually-made components, each around a millimetre long and around a fifth of a millimetre wide,” said David Dawson, Director of the Wiltshire Museum in Devizes where the micro-gold working achievements are on permanent display. The amazing process involved in creating the handle of just one dagger, included up to 140,000 tiny gold studs each just a third of a millimetre wide. The first stage involved manufacturing extremely fine gold wire, just a little thicker than a human hair, the end of the wire, flattened to create a stud-head, then cut with a very sharp razor no more than a millimetre below the head. This delicate procedure was then repeated literarily tens of thousands of times. An incredible ancient artefact, found near one of the most enigmatic ancient sites in the world, yet amazingly, academia continues to deny the existence of out of place artefacts, instead, opting to explain the construction of such marvellous work, by claiming it was somehow the work of children! due to their more “acute sight,” this, regardless of the clearly controversial evidence at hand. Who created such astonishing microscopic jewellery? Were these amazing artefacts once the possessions of the actual builders of Stonehenge? Incredible items, that are clearly, amazing, ancient, ooparts. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/2...
