the bitumen completely covers the copper cylinder, electrically insulating it, so no current can be drawn without modifying the design;
there are not any wires or conductors with them;
a bitumen seal, being thermoplastic, is excellent for forming a hermetic seal for long term storage. It would be extremely inconvenient however for a galvanic cell, which would require frequent topping up of the electrolyte (if they were intended for extended use).

So, a mass market ersatz archeological fantasy is a good start? I wonder if you've ever read the studies of people who actually looked at the objects von D. fantasized about?
From Kryties. Genuinely interesting when I'd already assumed through experience that Daniken had nothing more than words. Thanks.
The Fuente Magna, discovered in Bolivia. Ceramic bowl with writing in alleged Sumerian cuneiform.
* The Kensington Runestone, purported to be a 14th century Norse artifact found in Minnesota.

While most researchers may not ask why an item such as a wheel was not used, I am one to do so if I think the question has merit.

You say "mistakes". Other people say "deliberate lies". He lied about the circumstances of discovery, for example. Lying from the outset is not a good way to gain respect or trust.

Two current books which expose the cover-up of the metal-library, the smear-campaign against Daniken, the fight for Gold worth tens of Billions and even the cold-blooded murder of people involved in the "metal library" affair:
Stan Hall / Tayos Gold
(This is the guy who led government- and university-supported expeditions to the metal library with Neil Armstrong and who, in his book, admits that Daniken was right in publishing about it)
How did Neil Armstrong get involved? "The expedition needed an honorary figurehead," Stan Hall said. "The name of Prince Charles, who had recently received a degree in archaeology, was proposed, but I knew Neil Armstrong had Scottish connections. My mother was an Armstrong and via another Armstrong in Langholm, where Neil Armstrong had been made an honorary citizen, I made contact. Months later, I got a reply that Neil Armstrong was more than willing to join us on this mission. It's when the expedition suddenly became a life's challenge."
On 3 August 1976, when the expedition was winding down, Armstrong entered the tunnel system. Even though they were not looking for it, the team members did not stumble upon a Metal Library. Had they done so, the discovery would have altered mankind's perspective on our history and origins. For Amstrong, it could have been his second great contribution to mankind's exploration. However, the team did catalogue 400 new plant species as well as a burial chamber inside the cave, in which a seated body was found. The chamber was later dated to 1500 BC, and it was believed that at the time of the summer solstice the sun illuminated this tomb.
