The British Crystal Skull and the Paris Crystal Skull

There is a pair of similar skulls known as the British Crystal Skull and the Paris Crystal Skull. Both are said to have been bought by mercenaries in Mexico in the 1890s, possibly at the same time.

They are so similar in size and shape that some have guessed that one was copied to produce the other. In comparison to the Mitchell-Hedges skull, they are made of cloudier clear crystal and are not nearly as finely sculpted. The features are superficially etched and appear incomplete, without discretely formed jawbones. The British Crystal Skull is on display at London's Museum of Mankind, and the Trocadero Museum of Paris houses the Paris Crystal Skull.

Mayan Crystal Skull and the Amethyst Skull

Further examples of primitively sculpted skulls are a couple called the Mayan Crystal Skull and the Amethyst Skull. They were discovered in the early 1900s in Guatemala and Mexico, respectively, and were brought to the U.S. by a Mayan priest. The Amethyst Skull is made of purple quartz and the Mayan skull is clear, but the two are otherwise very alike. Like the Mitchell-Hedges skull, both of them were studied at Hewlett-Packard, and they too were found to be inexplicably cut against the axis of the crystal.

Texas Crystal Skull (Max)

A skull known as "Max," or the Texas Crystal Skull, is a single-piece, clear skull weighing 18 pounds. It reportedly originated in Guatemala, then passed from a Tibetan spiritualist to JoAnn Parks of Houston, Texas. The Parks family allows visitors to observe Max and they display the skull at various exhibitions across the U.S.

ET Skull

"ET" is a smoky quartz skull found in the early 20th Century in Central America. It was given its nickname because its pointed cranium and exaggerated overbite make it look like the skull of an alien being. ET is part of the private collection of Joke Van Dietan, who tours with her skulls to share the healing powers she believes they possess.

Rose Quartz Crystal Skull

The only known crystal skull that comes close to resembling the Mitchell-Hedges skull is one called the Rose Quartz Crystal Skull, which was reported near the border of Honduras and Guatemala. It is not clear in color and is slightly larger than the Mitchell-Hedges, but boasts a comparable level of craftsmanship, including a removable mandible.

Brazilian Crystal Skull

This 13.8 pound life-size skull was donated to the museum's Section of Minerals by a Brazilian gem dealer in 2004.

"Compassion" - Atlantean Crystal Skull

A newly discovered Crystal skull that rivals the Mitchell Hedges Skull. Atlantean is what Maya Shaman and elder Hunbatz Men said when he first examined it at the crystal skull conference on 9/9/9.

This skull was in a warehouse in Africa for 22 years and then 7 years in storage in an import store. I found it 11 months ago today. It is human size and it has the removable jaw. It is the same dimensions as the Mitchell Hedges Skull with some added features.

Below: This view is of an Iron Oxide Occlusion between two of the 3 total layers on skull

When examined by a Dr. Minch, 20 year head of Geology dept. at the Natural History Museum in Santa Barbara showed how the front teeth or Maxilla angles to it's right! He felt this was one example of a hand carved Skull. "A machine made skull would have been straight."

This skull is now available for inspection in California.

Severed Head

There are many stories of severed heads surviving for minutes after an execution, but only one headless body that stood up and took a stroll – on this very day 610 years ago.
When the feared pirate Klaus Stortebeker faced his executioners in Hamburg, Germany, he struck a strange last minute deal: If, after his beheading, his headless body could walk, however many of his 70 captive men he made it past would be freed. It was agreed, and then he was executed.
Then, according to legend, his corpse got up and walked past eleven of his men, before the executioner tripped him. Deal or no deal, all of the pirates were murdered that day, their skulls impaled and displayed as a waring to others.
In 1898 the mass grave of the pirates was unearthed during construction, and the skull believed to be that of Stortebeker was donated to the Hamburg Museum where it has been on display since 1922. Last year the famous skull went missing, stolen from its display cabinet. After a desperate search and many false leads, the skull was finally discovered and returned earlier this year.

unsolved mysteries : AREA 51

The research center is a place where scientists conduct research activities that are equipped with various facilities and devices needed to support the achievement of goals and objectives of a study. In general, each country developed or are developing very concerned to have a research center.
Advances in science and technology in a country, is also determined by the results of research developed by the country concerned. Like the Research Center for Science and Technology (Puspitek) Serpong, is a research center owned by Indonesia. Within this area there are numerous research facilities in the shade of government institutions, such as LIPI, BATAN, BPPT, LAPAN, which continues to research and develop science and technology to peaceful purposes.

Of the many research centers are internationally renowned, is Area 51, a military testing facility and the development of a highly secret (top secret), which is operated by the United States Air Force. Area 51 is located in the area of ​​training and testing in Nevada. Location Area 51 is located in Lincoln Country 115.5 km north of Las Vegas with an area ranging from 103 square kilometers.

Area 51 was founded in 1955 that was originally intended to test the development of spy planes the United States U-2 Series is newly created. U-2 planes can fly to an altitude of 70,000 feet. During the U-2 operations have been freely fly over the territory of the Soviet Union until the end of the U-2 plane shot down in 1960. Finally, U-2 painted black in the 1960s. As for the fool as if the apparition of an unknown celestial body commonly called UFOs (Unditified Flying Object), some U-2 painted with a shiny silver color. Since then, Area 51 continues to evolve and be used for a variety of developing a project called Project Black (Black Project) consisting of series Blackbird aircraft, serial Stealth Fighter and Stealth series Boomber. Blackbird series is a continuation of the U-2 series that began in 1962 with the design type A-12 and SR-71. For example, type SR-71 has reached cruising speed 3500 km / h with an effective cruising altitude of 4830 km.

Stealth Fighter series is the first stealth fighter aircraft designed in the late 1970s. The aircraft was operating very well at night. Well-known type is the F-117 Nighthawk. Stealth or Stealth Series is an idea that the aircraft free of radar. Aircraft cruising speed is around 1040 km / h with good height as far as 2110 km. Achievement of operation has been demonstrated in the Gulf War and was commissioned to carry out the targets that have been cooked.

Stealth Series Boomber stealth aircraft is a continuation of the Stealth Fighter Series that have been developed extensively. Series of stealth aircraft known this is the type of Black Manta and B2. Cruising faster and more elusive on the radar of the Stealth Fighter series. Although even so, the strategy of attack still depends on information from the target.

Currently ditujukkan future projects to develop anti-radar technology (Stealth Technology), unmanned surveillance aircraft (UAVs or Unmanned Aerial vehicles) and aircraft (UCAVs, Unmanned combat aerial vehicles), allows to surf with high speed cruising area very high, known as "AURORA". Because the planes are unmanned, the plane is believed to be driven with tremendous speed. In other words, men that can really make a celestial body is unknown. Along with it came again the idea of ​​developing the X-33 spacecraft that technology has not done testing. However, X-33 spacecraft was believed to be a version of Aurora that is WHITE (for the sake of peace).

In line with the research of advanced fighter aircraft, also obtained data on the presence of celestial beings to the Earth, which is better known as the Alien. Finally we come to a question how likely is the existence of aliens in this universe. For that matter, Area 51 has been involved in the investigation of alien technology. Based on the issues that was widely and is believed by many experts, that a team of Area 51 has been found and secretly investigate UFO wreckage found in the Roswell area, the state of New Mexico, USA, 1947. Although there was not yet clear evidence, some outside experts have suspected that Area 51 scientists claimed to have and maintain an alien creature in a very secret place. The claim is reinforced by the recognition of a physicist Bob Lazar, in 1989 that he had worked at one research site located on the south Area 51 and Area 51 has been claimed that testing aircraft extraordinary sophistication and has also been in communication with aliens.

The existence of aliens in Area 51 has led a conspiracy theory that is the result of collecting data from the ruins of the plane that crashed in Roswell Alien and recognition of Bob Lazar has been involved in these activities, such as meetings or contacts with the state in space with adequate equipment, the development of highly-energy weapons high and the activities that are widespread throughout the world. Based on the outstanding issues of this conspiracy theory of the activities carried out at Groom Lake is located in the vicinity of Area 51. But so far there has not been a scientific explanation explicit in explaining the existence of a real alien. Enterprises that can be done is to collect data in the form of reports and photos snapped by amateur.

u.f.o story


We've probably all seen a movie on TV, or a series where someone is abducted by aliens. We laugh

, But then, when we look deeper into it, we begin to realize that it may not really comedy, but based on events that really happened.

UFO or unidentified flying objects have been observed for centuries, some famous cases in history. As in the David Bowie song, that's life on Mars, it is actually wrong to think that we are the only planet that is inhabited. Where are the other planets, ignoring us, inhabited by what we have come to be known as aliens and UFOs is their mode of transport.

Of course, scientists, like all paranormal activity, find a scientific explanation for everything, or try to, until they exhaust all the possibilities, already a clear indication that the other planets of our solar system is due to make a living atmosphere , but if you do not really exist, have no right to tell us about this?

After the huge success in 1980 film ET the general public was more interested in the possibility of life on other planets, some have dedicated their lives to research on the subject. Religious sects have been trained and thousands of sites dedicated to UFOs, with forums and the opportunity for you to give your own UFO sightings or alien abductions. These places are frequented by many hoaxes, and the observations of serious people who really think they have seen UFOs, aliens or other paranormal behavior.

A case of alien abduction was the most famous back in 1961, when Betty and Barry Hill were abducted by aliens while driving along the car, sees a bright light ahead, and then be deposited back the next day. In separate interviews, describing the couple what they had seen, and there were striking similarities, as well as physical signs of a struggle, with the strap of cases for binoculars Hill who have been displaced.

There are many cases where people who believe they have been abducted by aliens from a UFO landing and take, and instead they have physical scars, which can not be explained as physical self-harm. The Roswell incident is also high on the list of physical observation of UFOs, unexplained debris was found to be a UFO, however, the scientists explain that the distance that remains of a high-altitude surveillance balloon.

There are also many cases of unexplained cattle mutilations, and visual observation and photographic evidence of UFOs. Even if a scientist always find an explanation of the photo is not enough evidence there to leave us with a lingering thought of the existence of UFOs and aliens. Perhaps you are one of the many who have already seen a UFO or paranormal seeing the behavior, or perhaps could be the next ..

House Of Nightmares

Built in the 19th century, this Victorian Gothic building in ruins is the cornerstone of the quiet village of Bangs, Ohio. The solid brick building with several floors, briefly claimed the title of tallest building in the state of Ohio. Although not able to claim this title for some time, this building is still in contrast to some surrounding buildings on the strip - a group of houses on one floor and a couple of churches. This juxtaposition between the old building and the low surrounding landscape, rural place feels like a Stephen King novel.

The strange, disturbing the character of Knox County workhouse extends beyond just a feeling rampant. His property has changed several times, which is in the downward spiral of his state of decadence today. As the name suggests, the original purpose of this building to house the poor and needy in the county, and sparsely populated Knox in central Ohio. Later he was again seen as an infirmary, before being abandoned for the first several times in his history of neglect.

In the 20 Century Media Century, the Bible, the County of Knox College took over the operation of the old brick building and repair. The building was abandoned once more, however, when left to stand Bible Institute in Virginia. Since the building was inactive, its emptiness and ruin a reputation loss in the region. Capitalizing on this, a haunted house scene began operating the plant with the name "House of Nightmares." Although considerable work has been represented in construction kits, has paid little attention to maintenance. A partial collapse of the internal structure of 2006 the facility was finally closed to the public and the property passes to a private owner, who now holds the field.

For the curious and brave enough to come, this building is filled with relics of the intestine at all stages of its use. No previous tenant that is completely cleared. Medical equipment, including (but cheap) sets, paintings and more fill in all the dusty corridors.

The Mysterious Rods


After hearing of numerous UFO sightings in his local area of Monterrey, Mexico, a man called Santiago Ytturia decided to set up his camera equipment to see if he could catch one of these unusual objects on film. After waiting for more than an hour on the day of 19th of March, 1994, Ytturia started to become restless, but just as he was about to give up hope, his patience was rewarded. Suddenly, he spotted a flashing light and began filming. Unfortunately the light disappeared quickly and after waiting in vain for further activity, Ytturia decided to dismantle his camera and replay the video to see what he had captured on film. On reviewing the film he could see the strange light of the UFO, but then a few frames further on, Ytturia saw something else that puzzled him even more.

After the UFO had disappeared on the film, Yturria noticed the brief appearance of a long spear-like object, which darted across the screen at an incredible speed. After constantly replaying the footage he realised that this object could not be a bird or insect. In fact this object was moving so fast that it could only be spotted when the film was viewed frame by frame. Ytturia knew instantly that he had captured something new on film, but was it linked to the UFO or was it a completely new phenomena?

Since then, many more ‘rods’ have been captured on film from all over the world. One of the key investigators into the ‘rods’ phenomenon is video production company owner Jose’ Escamilla. So far, Escamilla, who is in charge of a team of independent investigators, has obtained spectacular footage and photographs from a wide range of countries, including the UK, Sweden, Canada, Norway, Mexico and the USA. He even has footage of rods underwater. What is generally agreed is that these strange objects are organic. In other words, they are living creatures and not just some new form of flying saucer. Some people have suggested that they maybe a form of extraterrestrial life form because they are occasionally encountered with UFO activity. Some sceptics would have us believe that what we are seeing is nothing more than birds, insects or camera trickery, but as you can see from the film footage on this page, this does not seem to be a conclusive explanation.

Despite the difference of opinion on the nature of rods, close examination of the video footage has uncovered a number of consistent features. Analysis reveals that the rods seem to be cylinder-shaped ‘creatures’ that range in length from about 10 centimetres to 3 metres, and can travel at speeds of up to 300 kmh. They appear to fly through the air by using an undulating solid membrane which vibrates extremely rapidly on each side of its body (similar to how a squid propels itself through water).

Because of the speed that they move, it can be difficult to capture rods on film. Even with 30 frames per second (fps), good video cameras still have problems capturing detailed pictures of rods. With rods moving up to speeds of 300 kmh, the video is only capable of capturing a few frames of footage before they disappear.  Also, because of the fast movement, the video images of rods generally lack resolution, meaning that it is hard to see fine details, such as if these ‘creatures’ possess eyes or even a head.

What seems to be the best footage taken so far of rods was filmed by Mark Lichtle who is a professional cameraman for US television. He was making a film of parachutists jumping into a deep, vertical cave near San Luis Potosi, Mexico. As in most cases, the rods were only noticed when the film was reviewed later. On observing the slow-motion video, Lichtle saw numerous rods darting in and out of the frame and flying around the base jumpers as they fell through the air (see picture left). In one shot, a rod avoids colliding with one of the jumpers by veering sharply away at the last second.

Optical expert Bruce Maccabee, better known for his analysis of UFO footage, has viewed the film and confirms that the objects are between 2 and 4 metres in length, therefore ruling out the possibility of birds or insects. In 1997, Escamilla attempted to gain scientific recognition of the phenomena by taking a selection of his footage to zoologists and entomologists from the University of Colorado. ‘They were totally baffled,’ states Escamilla. ‘All they could say was that it was unlike anything they had ever seen and that it deserved further study’.

Biologist Ken Swartz has been investigating the rods phenomenon since 1998 and says ‘Rods appear to be biological, but without a physical specimen it is difficult to say anything conclusively.  They seem to be amphibious, as they have been seen entering and leaving water. Perhaps they are born in the sea and emerge into the air?’ Speculating from the eyewitness testimony of people who have seen them, Swartz maintains that they appear to have some similarities to the family of creatures known as cephalopods, such as squids. ‘There have been descriptions of them expanding like a balloon and rapidly deflating,’ he states ’so they could be using a mechanism similar to a squid which sucks in water and jets it out for propulsion.’

If rods are biological entities, why has no one, so far, found the body of a dead rod? If they are flying around us all the time as is commonly believed, then how is it possible that not a single body has been discovered on the ground? Swartz explains that if the rods are indeed similar to squid, they will not have any hard body parts and so could decompose without a trace. Swartz points out ‘If you look at the fossil record, there is only one creature that ever lived that had the rod mode of locomotion, and this was the dominant predator of the time called anamalocaris, which lived in the sea during the Cambrian evolutionary expansion 400 million years ago.’ According to Swartz ‘the creature propelled itself by a row of plates or fins that vibrated in a similar manner to the membranes seen on rods, it is possible that anamalocaris is the evolutionary ancestor of rods.’

mystery of lost city atlantis

The story of a lost city under the sea, the city of Atlantis appears in books, films and television shows. People were fascinated by the existence of the city, who claimed to be a home of a very advanced civilization. But if there was such a city was submerged in the sea or not is still a mystery. The story of the city of Atlantis is first mentioned in the writings of the Greek philosopher Plato.

As for the writings of Plato, there was a city of the region, what we know today as the Strait of Gibraltar. Founded by the sea god, Poseidon ruled in March for his heirs. The city is described in the design and architectural marvel. When people live in peace according to the established laws Poseidon, the city of Atlantis was one night, went through thick smoke, which was the result of a volcano spits that existed on the island. When the volcanic lava make their way to the sea was a huge tsunami of up to 200 meters, and took the island, the sea would never be seen or heard of again.

Whether the story mentioned is true or just a fable from Plato is yet to be found out. However scientists have found that the area mentioned as Atlantis still holds the ash deposits of the volcano that erupted thousands of years ago. These deposits lie some 60 meters deep on the island which is now called Kalliste by the Greeks. A connection to the story by Plato and Kalliste is being sought to adjudge whether the story of the Lost City of Atlantis is for real or is just a myth handed down over generations. As there are no other theories to authenticate the fact, research are still going and the mystery still stays.

In Kyoto suburbs creep around a grassy jordhøj crowned by a memorial stone, beneath which are buried tens of thousands of noses and ears cut off, the ghastly trophies in brutal war of the 16th century.

Led by Toyotomi Hideyoshi, the Japanese invasions of Korea from 1592 to 1598 was one of the unsuccessful efforts to control Hideyoshi all East Asia. Previously, the tradition was to take the severed heads of enemies killed as souvenirs, but the distance and mounting that Bodycount impracticable. Instead, the soldiers took the ears - and later and more - the nose of those they had killed in battle. These had been marinated in brine and sent to be inspected and then buried in Mimizuka, literally translated "Mound of the ears," although it is better known as the grave in front of at least 38,000 Koreans.
The Japanese soldiers were also known to kill and indiscriminately mutilate peasants, including women, children, and the elderly, to obtain more body parts to send home for rewards. Some of these victims were allowed to live, and for years after in southern Korea noseless people were a common sight. Disputing counts have between 100,000 and 200,000 noses being brought back from Korea to Japan.
Mimizuka, a symbol of the cruelty of war, is in front of what was the Great Buddha Hall at Høkøji Temple and is now the Hokoku Shrine, honoring Toyotomi Hideyoshi, the leader of the brutality. Although a frequent stop for Korean tourists, Mimizuka is largely overlooked by the residents of Kyoto.

Mystery El Chupacabra

One of the most frightening creatures of Crypto zoology El Chupacabra is today, first discovered in Mexico in the town of Puerto Rico. They have also been observed in Latin American society, but the originality of the other monsters similar question of their existence remains a mystery. Even if people are afraid of this creature, but it certainly has been said, it does not harm the human race, but only eat goats and cattle. These monsters are said to be the release of goats, as the holes in the neck of goats and cattle and suck their blood. Most researchers consider Chupacabra legendary creatures, but no one knows who may attack livestock in such horror and mutilated that Chupacabra is said to be because they lack the blood of cattle and goats.

It is believed that the chupacabra looks like a kangaroo-like creature, while some say it looks like a gray-green lizard with longitudinal pins in the back.

There are claims observation Chupacabras's strange that people do not see it, but to find a trail of blood behind his cattle. The image of a hundred cattle were spread with the blood is an ugly and horrible spectacle, but the truth remains a mystery. People began to fear the Chupacabras, when the lack of blood was accompanied by the mutilation of dead animals found.

Although some of the people themselves have developed blurred vision, and videos of El Chupacabra, but are they for real or is faked video is a mystery in itself, because there are many people trying to semblance to those videos just for fame and wealth.

El Chupacabras is a real mystery, which should be revealed there are no convincing data about its originality.

The descriptions of this animal is very variable in the reports of eyewitnesses. It is most often described as reptiles, such as skin or feathers with large spikes on the back and head. It is often said to have large eyes, oval, black or red.

March 15, 2006: NASA astronauts are going back to the moon and when they get there they may need quake-proof housing.
That's the surprising conclusion of Clive R. Neal, associate professor of civil engineering and geological sciences at the University of Notre Dame after he and a team of 15 other planetary scientists reexamined Apollo data from the 1970s. "The moon is seismically active," he told a gathering of scientists at NASA's Lunar Exploration Analysis Group (LEAG) meeting in League City, Texas, last October.
Between 1969 and 1972, Apollo astronauts placed seismometers at their landing sites around the moon. The Apollo 12, 14, 15, and 16 instruments faithfully radioed data back to Earth until they were switched off in 1977.

Right: Buzz Aldrin deploys a seismometer in the Sea of Tranquillity. 
And what did they reveal? There are at least four different kinds of moonquakes: (1) deep moonquakes about 700 km below the surface, probably caused by tides; (2) vibrations from the impact of meteorites; (3) thermal quakes caused by the expansion of the frigid crust when first illuminated by the morning sun after two weeks of deep-freeze lunar night; and (4) shallow moonquakes only 20 or 30 kilometers below the surface.
The first three were generally mild and harmless. Shallow moonquakes on the other hand were doozies. Between 1972 and 1977, the Apollo seismic network saw twenty-eight of them; a few "registered up to 5.5 on the Richter scale," says Neal. A magnitude 5 quake on Earth is energetic enough to move heavy furniture and crack plaster.

Furthermore, shallow moonquakes lasted a remarkably long time. Once they got going, all continued more than 10 minutes. "The moon was ringing like a bell," Neal says.
On Earth, vibrations from quakes usually die away in only half a minute. The reason has to do with chemical weathering, Neal explains: "Water weakens stone, expanding the structure of different minerals. When energy propagates across such a compressible structure, it acts like a foam sponge—it deadens the vibrations." Even the biggest earthquakes stop shaking in less than 2 minutes.
The moon, however, is dry, cool and mostly rigid, like a chunk of stone or iron. So moonquakes set it vibrating like a tuning fork. Even if a moonquake isn't intense, "it just keeps going and going," Neal says. And for a lunar habitat, that persistence could be more significant than a moonquake's magnitude.
"Any habitat would have to be built of materials that are somewhat flexible," so no air-leaking cracks would develop. "We'd also need to know the fatigue threshold of building materials," that is, how much repeated bending and shaking they could withstand.
Right: Representative lunar seismograms from the Apollo 16 station. [More]
What causes the shallow moonquakes? And where do they occur? "We're not sure," he says. "The Apollo seismometers were all in one relatively small region on the front side of the moon, so we can't pinpoint [the exact locations of these quakes]." He and his colleagues do have some good ideas, among them being the rims of large and relatively young craters that may occasionally slump.
"We're especially ignorant of the lunar poles," Neal continues. That's important, because one candidate location for a lunar base is on a permanently sunlit region on the rim of Shackleton Crater at the Moon's south pole.
Neal and his colleagues are developing a proposal to deploy a network of 10 to 12 seismometers around the entire moon, to gather data for at least three to five years. This kind of work is necessary, Neal believes, to find the safest spots for permanent lunar bases.
And that's just the beginning, he says. Other planets may be shaking, too: "The moon is a technology test bed for establishing such networks on Mars and beyond."

Top 5 Unsolved Mysteries

The world, as it is, is full of unsolved mysteries that have puzzled people for a long time. If it is missing foreknowledge appearance of unexplained phenomena or merely inexplicable existence of Stonehenge, in the last century and have seen things that have not yet been fully explained. Here is a list of some of the most famous of these confusing phenomena of the mind that have attracted worldwide interest.

1.John F. Kennedy's Assassination

John F. Kennedy�s Assassination 

Most Americans believe that Lee Harvey Oswald could not have acted alone and that the manner in which he explained that it was the way the murder could have been achieved. The unsolved mystery is the darkest and deepest spot in the back of American intelligence and American democracy, or lack thereof, and alleging that the president could have been abolished to go against the wishes of those power. The president could have been killed by the force of the military-industrial mafia, or otherwise to its alliance with the famous Marilyn Monroe? We'll never know. JFKs assassination, Oswald's trial and subsequent events have been the subject of many novels and movies.

2.Bermuda Triangle

 The 20th century, dozens of ships and planes have disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle, located in the North Atlantic. This area is known for having some strange magnetic force of the planes that have disappeared without a trace, dirt can not be found, and sometimes an end to all forms of transmission, as has been cut short abruptly. Because of this strange phenomenon in this area on the map, was named the Devils Triangle. Some people even have religious connotations associated with the place. 


 Megalithic ruins located on Salisbury Plain in England, it is a combination of soil, wood and stone structures that have been re-shaped over the last 1400 years. What exactly could have motivated these people to build these structures? Could it be religion? The answers to these have not found yet Stonehenge remain a major tourist attraction for the simple fact that these structures are majestic in appearance and probably religious.

The Babushka Lady

This is the mystery surrounding the strange scarf wearing lady (the scarf being of a Russian-Babushka style) captured in pictures, filming the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. She is seen filming the vent and stays on to film it even after a lot of people had deserted the place of the tragedy. Her figure appears in all movies covering the assassination.

5.Shroud of Turin

 Shroud of Turin

It was held in St. John the Baptist, in turn, in Italy, this is a piece of linen cloth is printed a picture of a man who probably died cruxification. It 'was long believed to be the cloth Jesus was buried after his cruxification. Since there is no evidence to believe the second, the Shroud has also explained that a piece of linen. The researchers were not able to explain how or when the picture could be printed on linen.

The Stonehenge Burials

The Stonehenge Burials by Brian Haughton

The Mysteries of  Stonehenge

Much has been written about the reasons why the prehistoric monument of Stonehenge, in Wiltshire, southern England, was built. Perhaps this enigmatic ancient structure has been designed for the temple of the ancestors, the astronomical calendar, a healing center or a giant computer? May also worked all these things at different times during the 1500 years of history? As our ancient ancestors built a large monument has attracted great attention over the years. In fact, some experiments were conducted in carefully arranged Stonehenge to find out exactly how the Welsh blue stones and the stones were transported to local sarsen Salisbury Plain and what method is used to prevent when they arrived.
All this is fascinating enough, but Stonehenge still maintains its less explored, darker aspects, not least of which are the enigmatic burials scattered in and around this famous Neolithic monument. What can these burials, both cremation and inhumation, tell us about the rituals and activities that went on at Stonehenge more than four millennia ago?
What modern visitors see when they visit Stonehenge is a circular setting of large standing stones surrounded by earthworks, the remains of the last in a series of monuments constructed on the site between c3100BC and c1600BC. During its 1500-year history, Stonehenge was built in three broad construction phases, though there were numerous sub-phases in between, and there is evidence for human activity on the site both before and after these dates.
The first monument on the site, began around 3100 BC, was a circular ‘henge’ earthwork about 360 feet (110 metres) in diameter, a ‘henge’ in the archaeological sense being a circular or oval-shaped flat area enclosed by a boundary earthwork. This structure probably contained a ring of 56 wooden posts (or possibly an early bluestone circle), the pits for which are named Aubrey Holes (after the 17th century local antiquarian John Aubrey). Later, around 3000BC (the beginning of Stonehenge Phase II), some kind of timber structure seems to have been built within the enclosure, and Stonehenge functioned as a cremation cemetery, the earliest and largest so far discovered in Britain.

The Cremation Cemetery

During the 20th century nearly 60 cremation burials were uncovered at Stonehenge, with perhaps a couple of hundred more remaining in unexcavated areas of the monument. Interestingly, the latest of these cremations has been radiocarbon dated to c2300 BC, which illustrates that cremation was still being practiced at Stonehenge long after the bluestones and sarsens had been erected.
Another interesting and unusual aspect of the cremated remains discovered at Stonehenge is that the majority of them are from adult males, most within the 25 to 40-year age group. The conclusion can only be that only certain people were selected for burial within this early Stonehenge monument. These men would have been politically important, perhaps aristocrats and / or clan leaders and were probably authority figures at the site during the first half of the third millennium BC.
Most of the remaining (inhumation) burials in the area of the monument are roughly contemporary with each other, dating from the 2400 – 2150BC (the Early Bronze Age period), although there is only one complete skeleton from amongst them. Examination of this intact skeleton, which was found in 1978 buried in the outer ditch of the monument, revealed that the man had been shot at close range by up to six flint-tipped arrows, probably by two people, one shooting from the left the other from the right. Could this have been an execution or perhaps even some form of ritual human sacrifice?

Cleopatra and antonu

Bust of Cleopatra

Considered by the Romans as "fatal monstrosity" - a warning fatal Cleopatra is one of the most popular but elusive of the ancient world. The Egyptian queen was immortalized by many writers and filmmakers, the most popular of Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra, and Cleopatra in Hollywood (1963) with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.

The last work includes memorable image of the attractive young Cleopatra emerging gracefully from a folded blanket in front of the Roman general Julius Caesar's. But Cleopatra is to be regarded as mere lover of Julius Caesar and Mark Antony? Or does it play an important role not only in the history of Egypt, but also that the powerful Roman Republic?

Cleopatra VII Philopator (‘father-loving’) was born in January 69 BC in the city of Alexandria, Egypt, the daughter of Ptolemy XII Auletes (117 BC –51 BC) and possibly Cleopatra V Tryphaena (c 95 BC –  c 57 BC). Cleopatra was to become the last monarch of the Ptolemaic Empire (established in 323 BC after the death of Alexander the Great), ruling Egypt from 51 BC to 30 BC.
In 48 BC Cleopatra had become an ally and lover of Julius Caesar and remained so until his assassination in Rome in March of 44 BC.  The death of Caesar threw Rome into turmoil, with various factions competing for control, the most important of these being the armies of Mark Antony (83 BC– 30 BC) and Octavian (63 BC – AD 14), the former a supporter and loyal friend Caesar, the latter his adopted son.

Cleopatra Meets Antony

In 41 BC Cleopatra was summoned to Tarsus (in modern southern Turkey) by Mark Antony. She is said to have entered the city by sailing up the Cydnus River in a decorated barge with purple sails, while dressed in the robes of the Greek goddess Aphrodite. Antony, who equated himself with the god Dionysus, the Greek god of wine, was instantly won over. Much like the meeting between Cleopatra and Caesar, both sides saw something in the other which they needed. For Cleopatra it was another opportunity to achieve power both in Egypt and in Rome, for Anthony the support of Rome’s largest and wealthiest client states in his campaign against the might of the Parthians (Parthia was a region in modern north-eastern Iran) was highly desirable. At the meeting Cleopatra allegedly requested that her half-sister Arsinoë, living in protection at the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, be executed to prevent any future attempts on her throne.
Anthony and Cleopatra soon became allies and lovers and he returned with her to Alexandria in 40 BC. In Alexandria Cleopatra and Antony formed a society of “inimitable livers”, which some historians have interpreted as an excuse to lead a life of debauchery, though it was more likely to have been a group dedicated to the cult of the mystical god Dionysus. In that year Cleopatra bore Antony the twins Alexander Helios (the Sun) and Cleopatra Selene (the Moon).

Octavian and Rome

The political situation in Rome compelled Antony to return to Italy where he was forced to conclude a temporary settlement with Octavian, part of which was that he married Octavian’s sister, Octavia. It was to be three years before he and Cleopatra were to meet again, at the city of Antioch (near the modern Turkey / Syria border) under the shadow of the Octavian’s growing military power in the West. One result of this meeting was that Cleopatra became pregnant with her third child by Antony (the future Ptolemy Philadelphus); another was that parts of Rome’s eastern possessions came under Cleopatra’s control.

Celebrations in Alexandria

In 34 BC, despite the fact that Antony’s Parthian campaign had been an extravagant failure, Antony and Cleopatra celebrated a mock Roman Triumph in the streets of Alexandria. Crowds flocked to the Gymnasium to see the couple seated on golden thrones surrounded by their children, and Antony made a proclamation known today as the ‘Donations of Alexandria’. In this declaration Antony distributed lands held by Rome and Parthia amongst Cleopatra and their children, and proclaimed Caesarion as Caesar’s legitimate son.

Mystery of the Great Sphinx

The Great Sphinx by Brian Haughton 
Buried for most of its life in the desert sand, an air of mystery has always surrounded the Great Sphinx, causing speculation about its age and purpose, method of construction, concealed chambers, role in prophesy, and relationship to the equally mysterious pyramids.
Much of this theorizing is to the despair of Egyptologists and archaeologists, who, reasonably it seems to me; only give credence to theories that are backed up by tangible evidence.

The Mystery of the Great Sphinx

Facing the rising sun, the Great Sphinx is located on the Giza plateau, about 10km west of Cairo, on the west bank of the Nile River. Later Egyptian rulers worshipped it as an aspect of the sun god, calling it Hor-Em-Akhet (“Horus of the Horizon”). The Sphinx sits in part of the necropolis of ancient Memphis, the seat of power for the pharaohs, a short distance from three large pyramids – the Great Pyramid of Khufu (Cheops), Khafre (Chephren) and Menkaura (Mycerinus).
The monument is the largest surviving sculpture from the ancient world, measuring 73.5m in length and in parts 20m in height. Part of the uraeus (sacred cobra which protected from evil forces), the nose and the ritual beard are missing; the beard is now displayed in the British Museum. The extensions at the side of the head are part of the royal headcloth. Although the head of the Sphinx has been badly affected by thousands of years of erosion, traces of the original paint can still be seen near one ear.
It is thought that originally the Sphinx’s face was painted dark red. A small temple between its paws contained dozens of inscribed stelae placed by the Pharaohs in honour of the Sun god.

The Pharaoh’s Dream

The Sphinx has suffered greatly from the ravages of time, man and modern pollution. In fact, what has saved it from complete destruction is the fact that it has been submerged beneath the desert sand for most of its life. There have been various attempts to restore the Great Sphinx over the millennia, beginning in c1400 BC with the pharaoh Tuthmosis IV. After falling asleep in the shade of the Sphinx when out hunting, the pharaoh dreamt that the great beast was choking from the sand engulfing it, and that it told him if he cleared the sand he would obtain the crown of Upper and Lower Egypt. In between the front paws of the Sphinx is a granite stela, now called the “Dream Stela”, which is inscribed with the story of the pharaoh’s dream.
Towards the end of 2010, during routine excavation work in the area of the monument, Egyptian archaeologists discovered large sections of mudbrick walls which were part of a larger wall which stretched for 132 meters (433 feet) around the Great Sphinx. The archaeologists believe that the wall was built by Tuthmosis IV after his dream to protect the Sphinx from the desert winds.
After the clearing ordered by Tuthmosis IV, and despite the wall, the colossal sculpture once again found itself beneath the sand. When Napoleon arrived in Egypt in 1798, he found the Sphinx without its nose. 18th century drawings reveal that the nose was missing long before Napoleon’s arrival; one story goes that it was the victim of target practice in the Turkish period. Another and perhaps the most likely explanation, is that it was pried off by chisels in the 8th century AD, by a Sufi who considered the Sphinx a sacrilegious idol. In 1858, some of the sand around the sculpture was cleared by Auguste Mariette, the founder of the Egyptian Antiquities Service, and between 1925 and 1936, French engineer Emile Baraize excavated the Sphinx on behalf of the Antiquities Service. Possibly for the first time since antiquity, the Great Sphinx was once again exposed to the elements.

Who does the Great Sphinx Depict?

The explanation for the enigmatic sculpture favoured by most Egyptologists is that Chephren, a Fourth Dynasty pharaoh, had the stone shaped into a lion with his own face at the same time as the construction of the nearby Pyramid of Chephren, around 2540 BC. However, there are no inscriptions anywhere that identify Chephren with the Sphinx, neither is there mention anywhere of its construction, which is somewhat puzzling when considering the grandness of the monument. Despite many Egyptologists claims to the contrary no-one knows for sure when the Sphinx was built or by whom.
In 1996, a New York detective and expert in identification concluded that the visage of the Great sphinx did not match known representations of Chephren’s face. He maintained that there was a greater resemblance to Chephren’s elder brother Djedefre. The debate is still continuing. The mystery of the Sphinx’s origin and purpose has often given rise to mystical interpretations, such as those of English occultist Paul Brunton and, in the 1940′s, controversial American psychic and prophet Edgar Cayce.

A ghost called Resurrection Mary haunts the city of Chicago. 

Mary’s ghost was sited by the cemetery

Mary has been sited at a local dance hall
In January of 1979, a Chicago cab driver stopped to pick up a female passenger at the front gates of Resurrection Cemetery, the final resting place of more than 150,000 souls.  But before he could let her in, the mysterious woman disappeared.  The cab driver had just met Chicago’s most famous ghost, Resurrection Mary.
Richard Crowe was a local historian and folklorist at the time of the sighting:
“I think that of all the ghost stories worth believing in, Resurrection Mary is the one with the best documentation.  The witnesses that I’ve found are remarkably level-headed.  And they’re primarily blue collar, middle-class types who have steady jobs and who have no other major claims to psychic encounters in their lives.”

Jerry Palus gave Mary’s ghost a ride home
As the story goes, the first person to ever encounter Resurrection Mary was Jerry Palus.  The year was 1939.  The place…a Chicago dance hall where Jerry was a regular.
Jerry was captivated by a young blonde woman and immediately asked her to dance.  He learned little about her, except that her name was Mary and she lived on the south side of town.  He danced with the young woman all night. When it was time to leave, Jerry offered Mary a ride home. 
Before his death in 1992, Jerry was interviewed about his encounter with Resurrection Mary.  He described the events of that evening:
“As we walked along to the street she says well you might as well take me down to Archer Road.  And I said what for?  I said you live up here where you told me.   And she says no I want to go out to Archer Road.”
Jerry stopped in front of Resurrection Cemetery and let Mary out of the car.  It was at that moment that she vanished before his eyes. Jerry admitted he was perplexed, but certainly willing to forgive one unexplained disappearance. 

Actual article about Mary Bregovy’s death
Still wanting to know more about the mysterious woman, the very next day Jerry drove to the house where Mary had said she lived.  Jerry found the house with little trouble.  The woman who answered the door was Mary’s mother.  When Jerry asked if he could see her daughter, the woman told him that Mary had been dead for five years.
According to Richard Crowe, it then dawned on Jerry that Mary was no ordinary woman:
“It’s then, Jerry said, that he understood why the woman he was dancing with that night was ice cold to the touch. He had worked in a funeral home for a while and it was the touch of a corpse.”
Years later, Richard Crowe learned the ghost was believed to be the restless spirit of a young woman named Mary Bregovy.  Mary Bregovy had been killed in a traffic accident in 1934, a month before her 21st birthday.  She was laid to rest in Resurrection Cemetery in her favorite white gown. 
Over the years, Resurrection Mary has been seen time and time again, at dance clubs, in taxis, and walking outside the cemetery, looking for someone to take her home.
In 1980, Clare Rudnicki was driving along the front of Resurrection Cemetery, when she too spotted Mary:
“I really didn’t think there was any ghost.  You hear these stories and these old ghost tales but it’s never happened to me.  But now I must say I think I’m changing my mind.
I was just looking out the window as we were going down the street.  And on the right hand-side of the road there was a girl walking.  She was bright, very bright, like illuminating.  She was just walking very slowly.  I remember thinking oh my god it’s Resurrection Mary.  And I can feel my stomach starting to turn.  I was very frightened, I have to admit.  It did scare me.”
Clare’s husband, Mark Rudnicki, was also in the car:
“We all went past it, turned around and came back and by the time we’d gotten back to where we’d originally seen her it had gone.  Vanished.” 
In October of 1989, Janet Kalal and a friend were out for an evening drive.  After about an hour, they found themselves at Resurrection Cemetery.  It was then, Janet recalled, that a pale young woman stepped in front of the car:
“There was no impact, there was no… bump to say that you know I had hit something.  But I know she ran out… and I hit her.  She was all in white and her hair and the dress were… flowing back.  It was like a stream backwards, you know away from her.  And I just saw this profile of a young woman.”
Does the ghost of Mary Bregovy really haunt Chicago? Or is Resurrection Mary just an urban myth?  In any case, should you find yourself driving in the city late one night and happen to spot a pale young woman in a flowing white gown, you might think twice about offering her a ride.
