To be honest, I never even heard about this artifact.

This subject was mentioned on a cool thread, back in 2013. Here's the LINK.

The Wedge of Aiud was discovered in 1974 in Aiud, Romania. This wedge shaped hunk of aluminum was discovered at a construction project, along with some mastodon bones in 35 feet of sand.

This 2:47 minute video clip, that was posted two days ago, is from History's "Ancient Aliens" series. In this clip, the researchers imply that the wedge could be a "UFO Artifact," which is the reason I posted this thread on this forum.

The Wedge of Aiud is said to be made out of aluminum, which wasn't discovered until 1825. The researchers state that since this artifact was near a few mastodon bones, it must be over 10,000 years old. So, they conclude that this object came from a high tech civilization, which were "probably extraterrestrials."

It's an interesting video, but am I the only one who thinks this wedge looks like a tooth from an excavator bucket?

Excavator bucket "tooth":




Here's the video clip. Decide for yourself:

An ET ship crashed into a mastodon?

Google says "the object has been identified as an excavator tooth" made of a type of aluminum that oxidizes quickly.

That's what it is, a tooth from an excavator, and not an ancient alien excavator, but they have time to fill and their audience is credulous so they don't need good evidence of ancient aliens to make episodes.

“The Wedge of Aiud.”

This is definitely an excavator tooth. The only mystery is, why does anyone, anywhere, pay any attention to anyone who says otherwise?

Yes, it does look like that. However, there is no way they make those out of aluminum. It isn’t strong enough to excavate with.

Correct. An alum excavator tooth wouldn't last an hour, and would be more expensive, in any case.

Some have attributed it to WWII aircraft crash debris.

Nice OP.


I have not heard of this item either. This could possibly be from an advanced unknown human civilization from the past, too.

I try to ignore the knee-jerk debunking, but it does get old.

So does the knee-jerk, "It's aliens!" nonsense every time someone finds something that supposedly does not fit their expectations. Here we have something man made out of aluminum that is "found with" mastadon bones and IMMEDIATELY the conclusion is "It is contemporary with the mastadons!" That must make every dead archaeologist turn over in his grave. Sloppy, sloppy, sloppy reasoning. This was not a careful archaeological dig. There is no context. Someone dug it up. Then we jump to "advanced unknown human civilization!" More nonsense.

Simple answer: It's intrusive. You can get upset that everyone doesn't take your "aliens" claims seriously, but it is still making unsubstantiated sweeping conclusions from nothing at all substantial. That DOES get old.

Just a remnant from our ancient ancestors who, according to the likes of Graham Hancock etc, had an advanced civilisation that was destroyed by catastrophe when the last ice age ended.

It’s the first time I’ve seen an aluminum item attributed to them though.

More likely to be modern piece of equipment that has somehow found its way into the ‘pile of mastodon bones’ over the years due to human activity. But it’s not an excavator tooth.

Extraterrestrials? Mmmmm, probably not.

This is what I mean. At least watch the video and go a little deeper by following the links that start in the OP.

It is not just because it was found with a mastodon. There are other reasons to ask questions and speculate about the origin of this object (on a conspiracy website).



Anomalous Aluminum

The object is covered with a thick layer of aluminum oxide. After the analysis of this layer, the specialist affirmed that the object is at least 300 to 400 years old.

This result puzzled the researchers because pure aluminum was not readily obtainable until the middle of the 19th century.

Other specialists claim that the object could be 20,000 years old because it was found in a layer with mastodon bone. Perhaps this particular specimen lived in the latter part of the Pleistocene.


This could be true or maybe not. Either way you should of known about this and debunked it or at least brought it up.

Something else you may not be aware of is that it is said that the three objects (2 bones and the object in question) were found under like, 35 feet of sand in a sand pit.

The object is in the Museum of the History of Transylvania in Cluj. So others think it could be an item of interest.

THE AIUD ARTIFACT

Like I said this could all be complete BS. But throwing out statements like you did without doing a little research is, well, knee-jerk. On a conspiracy website.

I thought it was identified as part of a landing mechanism for a space craft. It broke off from one of the extension legs.

RationalWiki has a great article for the skeptic side of this.

Wedge of Aiud

Things like: the fact that the object was uncovered from museum archives in 1995 by a UFO magazine... add to the air of skepticism.

I vote excavator bucket tooth, but who knows.

And what pray tell do you think they used to dig?

An excavator, perhaps, which is used for digging? Which has teeth that can break off and be replaced?

Do you just make this stuff up, like the guy who said it was a landing mechanism? Excavator teeth can be made out of various materials, including aluminum. They were digging at a sandy site so it's not like they needed teeth that could handle hard materials.

You can order this excavator tooth in a variety of materials including aluminum:

Hey! I've been looking for that excavator tooth! I lost it digging for mastodons!

You’re absolutely right. I’m surprised they use aluminum. After doing some reading, they use aluminum around flammable excavations.

.

Aluminum (as well as Brass, Stainless Steel, Iron, Zinc Alloy or Polyurethane) EBT can be purchased on-line from Global Sources in China, complete with a 30 day delivery schedule. They are used to reduce the risk of explosion and fire when digging in volatile environments - such as coal mines, swamps, land fills or around inflammable gases or vapours. And while the total number of volatile environments in Romania cannot be estimated - coal mining itself has been going on in Romania for some time. Many mines have been shut down in recent years due to the fall of Communism and joining the European Union (EU). So is it far fetched to suggest that an excavator - that had been used in coal mining or the transfer of coal - was used in excavating the sand in this riverbank/ sandpit? And of all likely scenarios, did the Aluminum wedge/ tooth simply fall off of the excavator bucket that was digging the hole? And then someone unfamiliar with the maintenance of the excavator found it in the sand.


From this article debunking this.

hilblairious.blogspot.com...

I stand corrected, it’s definitely an excavation tooth.

By the fact that it’s 8x5x3 inches in dimension (the size range of an EBT), seals the deal as well.

Thanks for doing the research! Much better than jumping to conclusions.

Go to eBay and search antique aluminum trays and spoons. They don’t degrade like that. A neighbor metal detected aan aluminum tray from a plantation that had to be at least early 1900s. Once it was cleaned up it was in great enough shape he still uses it. I don’t think it’s aliens but it being an excavator tooth doesn’t sound right to me.

Probably more recent in origin BUT if not there is absolutely no way to link this to ancient aliens as it is far more likely to have an origin in a former advanced civilization - that everyone claim's did not exist for exactly the same reason they deny ancient alien's.

While I do not discount the possibility of ancient alien contact I also think that those that ascribe to it begin to see everything as ancient alien.

Imagine if our civilization was to end perhaps due to a pandemic that killed 99.9999 percent of the human race, or a global environmental cataclysm, ten or a hundred or a million years into the future there would be almost nothing to say our civilization had ever existed and only perhaps deep ice carbon spikes trapped in gas bubbles would suggest anything had been here with any scientist from that age probably ascribing them to nothing more than wildfires or volcanic activity.

They may even have there answer to the Smithsonian with artifacts mysteriously disappearing so that they do not upset the established time line and evolution theory's of that coming age.

So why does it have to be associated with alien's.

Human's or a precursor race.

And perhaps there have been many races on this earth, more likely though in my opinion humanity is far - far - far older or at least it has been recreated several times (there is nothing new under the sun as the bible - Jesus - say's).

Ancient legend's spoke of city's were the light's never went out, of ancient king's that flew through the sky, of wars in heaven and on earth and even in the sea.

Of course this does not mean alien's never visited our solar system, perhaps in ancient times some of these ancient civilization's even had contact with them - perhaps it was even detrimental to there existence leading to there destruction, perhaps some of these ancient alien's if they were real enslaved human survivors generations later and forced them to dig for remnants of there own ancient civilization to strip mine the refined materials and resources and erase all trace of what had once been here until that alien corporation was done stealing the heritage of the human race and left the weakened, dumbed down, sickly and short lived but fast breeding slaves they had turned those survivors into to fend for themselves and hopefully die out.

And just perhaps that is one reason why certain governments are covering up fact's about a possible former super civilization in our solar system that was most probably human in origin, not humans like us but longer lived, more graceful, more intelligent and slower breeding but there were once far more of them than there are of us, still WE are THERE legacy and the ancient alien proponent's spit in there face and deny the greatness that was our heritage as do those that cover up our true history.

But if this was true would there not still be traces of evidence even if almost all of it had been erased on earth out there perhaps on some of the other planets of the inner solar system - and perhaps beyond as we ourselves may once have been an interstellar civilization.

Every picture on this site is of mars unless the site say's otherwise were a few images of the earth have been used for comparison.

Ever wonder what the sand blown ruin's of an ancient but very modern city that was saturation carpet bombed to oblivion look's like.

I have seen this before and was perplexed about the hole in the side until I realised it had been cut in 1979. Can anybody explain how this would work as a digger's bucket-tooth? I assume the teeth at the top would fix onto a wedge but fail to see what the hole in the top is for.

I am on the side of mistaken identity.
