Another amazing discovery has been made.




An ancient burial containing chariots, gold artifacts and possible human sacrifices has been discovered by archaeologists in the country of Georgia, in the south Caucasus.

The burial site, which would've been intended for a chief, dates back over 4,000 years to a time archaeologists call the Early Bronze Age, said Zurab Makharadze, head of the Centre of Archaeology at the Georgian National Museum.

very good find, I haven't seen this one yet. I wonder how long we have really been using wheels. You would think that neanderthals would even have been using them but all evidence of that may be gone,

Even if archeologists a hundred years ago found the wheels with neanderthal remains, they would have said they were not their wheels, because these primitive cavemen could not have been smart enough to make wheels. Evidence in the past was misinterpretted because the experts beliefs were distorted. People can not always see what does not fit their beliefs. If something is contrary to the knowledge they hold, many people will not see it is real.

Thanks for posting . . . great find!

Just imagine how many other "treasures" lie beneath modern cities or buildings which may never be found.

I'll be looking for more info on this, thanks!

Thanks for posting, and sharing this. That's amazing. I love all these old things from the past.

I could not agree more, the Egyptians used copper chisels, a soft metal, yet they hardened the chisels to work on granite's, a hard stone, no one knows how they did it!

Why would "you think that neanderthals would have even been using them"? While it is certainly a possibility, I guess, there has never been evidence of "wheels" associated with any Neanderthal sites, let alone Homo Sapiens sites dating before about 6000 years ago. And, I don't see the leap in making a correlation between a modern human site from 4000 years ago and Neanderthals which would have died out a minimum of 24,000 years earlier.

While it may be true that 100 years ago "experts" may have had a "distorted" view of the species, that is not the case today. We now know they had a language, used or invented many complex tools that led to subsequent advances, had ritualistic burials, made jewelry, cooked vegetables . . . etc. Yet, despite all of that nothing resembling a wheel has ever been found. In fact, the earliest "wheels" found only date to about 3800-3500 B.C.E. and were used as potter's wheels. The first wheels for transportation don't appear until civilizations dating from around 3200-3000 B.C.E.. That said, that was still 1000 years before the discovery being discussed in the OP!

So, I'm not sure how it is logical at all to say that a find from the early bronze age that included chariots, which were almost a 1000 year old as a technology by the time of this find, would lead one to "think" a long extinct relative "would have been using them" 20,000 years prior? Seems like quite a leap to make, in order to try to make a point about the "experts" being wrong and bash mainstream science.

First of all you need to stop getting your education from those that propose "lost history" and "ancient aliens", if that is why you have the ideas that you do. . . . Egyptians used more than just "copper" and even if they did not, it is not hard to use copper to "cut granite". And, yes, we know "how they did it". They didn't use "chisels" to cut granite . . . they had copper, bronze, and stone saws to cut the blocks after they were quarried. All you have to do is put sand down on the block first and then have two people saw, putting some more sand down from time to time. The silica in sand is as hard as the granite and cuts right through. They even had copper, bronze, and stone "drills" to punch holes in granite.

For quarrying large pieces, like obelisks, they used tools made from dolerite to cut large trenches on both sides. Then used a lever system to break the rock away from the foundation. The Egyptians actually left writing (hieroglyphs) describing this. And, we still can go to Egypt and see partially quarried obelisks in different stages.

You are correct . This vid is long and takes a realistic look and some of the ways they could have done what they did in ancient times . It also shows some of the deception the ancient alien series employs .
