In the pyramid of Cheops there are two secret rooms, the entrances to which were carefully hidden thousands of years ago. Only disguise helped hide them from the marauders and leave them sealed. Today’s technologies make it possible to break through to the mysteries of the past, but old artifacts are in no hurry to tell everything to scientists. Secret rooms have been found, but the corridors and entrances to them have yet to be opened.
Rooms in the Cheops pyramid
Research carried out by participants in a project to scan the Egyptian pyramids showed that there may be two previously unknown internal cavities in the Cheops pyramid. For a number of reasons, some have disputed this sensational finding and are trying to conduct alternative research. However, despite this, voids can exist, and in them, accordingly, something historically priceless can be hidden.
Peoples of the sea
Scientists are still wondering who the so-called “Sea Peoples” were, who raided cities across the Mediterranean 3,200 years ago. As evidenced by the ceramics of that time, these tribes lived in the Aegean region, but then migrated to the Middle East. At present, attempts are actively continuing to unravel the motives of the “Sea Peoples”, according to which they arranged a bloodbath for their neighbors. Perhaps the light will be shed by an artifact found this month in Turkey with a huge inscription in the language most likely spoken by these tribes.
Not so long ago – during the First World War – British Air Force pilots discovered strange drawings on the ground in the Arabian Peninsula. They looked like giant bicycle wheels. Scientists began to research and found that they were created in 6500 BC. This is very strange, because the geoglyphs are not visible from the ground, and you can only look at them from a bird’s eye view.
Valley of the Kings
The Valley of the Kings has been used since ancient times for the burial of the remains of the royal families of Egyptian rulers. Most of the tombs were destroyed at different times. However, according to some researchers, it is worth resuming the search, because there must be undiscovered tombs in this place. In them, most likely, the wives of the pharaohs with all their wealth are buried.
Dead Sea Scrolls
The Dead Sea Scrolls are made up of thousands of fragments of texts that were written 2,000 years ago and were found in 12 nearby caves in modern Israel. Who wrote the Dead Sea Scrolls is perhaps the most violent scientific debate, in which the Essenes sect remains the leading version. These people wrote a lot and kept manuscripts in caves until the Roman army drove them out of their homes. But this theory is becoming less popular, as evidence has been found that the scrolls were brought to this place from somewhere else.
The oldest Christian artifact
Currently, the earliest surviving Christian artifacts are papyri from the second century. They arose one hundred years after the supposed death of Christ. However, today scientists come to the conclusion that one of the lists of the Gospel may be practically the same age as Jesus. This is a fragment of the Gospel of Mark from the first century AD.
It is known that in 1000 the Vikings reached the shores of North America for the first time. However, there their traces are lost, and it is not known where they continued to migrate. More recently, artifacts have been unearthed suggesting that the north coast of North America may have been their long-term home.
