The Baghdad Battery, sometimes referred to as the Parthian Battery, is the common name for a number of artifacts created in Mesopotamia, possibly during the Parthian or Sassanid period (the early centuries AD). These jars were probably discovered in 1936 in the village of Khuyut Rabbou'a, near Baghdad, Iraq. These artifacts came to wider attention in 1938 when Wilhelm König, the German director of the National Museum of Iraq, found the objects in the museum's collections. In 1940, König published a paper speculating that they may have been galvanic cells, perhaps used for electroplating gold onto silver objects. This interpretation continues to be considered as at least a hypothetical possibility. If correct, the artifacts would predate Alessandro Volta's 1800 invention of the electrochemical cell by more than a millennium.
A hammer included in a block of sandstone, discovered at Kingoodie, MyInfield in 1844 by the physicist David Brewster. The sandstone, dated by dr. A. W. Med of the British Geological Research Center, goes back to a period between 360 and 460 millions years.
Shell carved with a rudimental, nevertheless recognizable, human face that is on the external surface. As reported in 1881 by the geologist H. Stopes to the British Association for the Advancement of Science this shell of the formation Red Crag, in England, that belongs to the Pliocene, dates back to over two million years ago.
The "geode of Coso", an ancient geode (a cavity of rock with walls covered with crystals) picked up near Olancha (California) in which a very strange object was found, made of metal and porcelain. In figure A we see the geode sectioned in two parts, in B the two halfs of the geode seen from the inside. The figure C is a frontal radiography of the object: there's a metallic structure, uncommon for a so ancient object (fossil shells encrusting its surface are at least half a million years old!). And finally, in D, two images of the metallic structure that appears in the interior of the geode of Coso in a lateral radiography.
For the people who discount the theory, I would really like to know the reasons why.
The space once occupied by water could now be filled with a mixture of molten iron from the core and hot gasses.

The images also remind me of the idea of ancient egyptian artwork like the "Dendera lightbulb". Remember these images? (sorry if already posted).
"If we evacuate a glass bulb with two metal parts reaching into it (B), (C), we can see a discharge at much lower levels, depending on the size of the glass balloon (D). At a pressure of about 40 t (tonnes) (40 mm of mercury) a snakelike light filament meanders from one metal part to the other (E). If we evacuate further, the light filament grows wider until it fills the whole glass balloon. This is exactly what we see in on the pictures in the subterranean chambers of the Hathor sanctuary."

Liquid water would not have existed "under the crust" in such quantities, especially since you agree that it is very hot doen there, hot enough to melt iron!
In the late 1930s, oil was discovered under Long Beach harbor. Its production helped Long Beach recover from the Depression and provided revenue to support expansion and modernization of the harbor as well as enriching individuals who owned land in the area. As a result when land near the oil field began to sink, those who were profiting from pumping the oil out from under the land resisted any suggestion that there could be a link between oil production and subsidence. They hired experts to defend their position. As the subsidence continued, those whose property was damaged by the sinking, but who were not benefiting from the oil production, hired experts to determine what was really causing the sinking.
While the controversy continued, the land kept sinking. It sunk like a big bowl and the bottom of the bowl was more than 25 feet below its previous elevation. Some warned that if the sinking continued, the ocean might inundate the city. The Navy Shipyard was near the bottom of the bowl and the Navy didn't own the mineral rights of the Shipyard so they were suffering damage but receiving no benefit so in 1958 the Navy sued all of the oil operators. Although the suit was never litigated or settled, it helped to convince many people that a proposed solution, pumping water into the fault blocks where the oil had been taken out, should be implemented. And that solution stopped the sinking.
The production of oil from under the harbor led geologists to explore the area under the tidelands and submerged lands off Long Beach and oil was discovered to be there as well. This discovery led to a struggle between the city, to whom the state had granted the tidelands in 1911, and the state and federal governments over control of the oil revenue. Eventually the state and city were forced to divide the money.
