1 - Klerksdorp Spheres. If you google them, you'll see there are thousands and they aren't 'perfectly formed spheres.'
2 - Dropa Stones are a hoax that involved a UK author and Erik Von Daniken
3 - Ica Stones were a hoax. Google Ica Stones & Fortean Times.
4 - The Antikythera Mechanism is a genuinely wonderful piece of Greek history. Google 'Antikythera Nature video.'
5 - The Baghdad Batteries are genuine clay pots, some few inches in height, with the capability of producing a 1.5v charge (iirc). There's some
discussion about whether they were designed to hold a charge.
6 - Coso Artefact is a Champion spark plug. Google 'Coso Champion spark plug.' It was probably from a combustion engine water pump used by turn of
the century miners.
7 - Ancient model aircraft. No. The Egyptian 'glider' is a model bird. It's been recreated and couldn't fly unless a rapid nose-dive is considered
flying. The gold model doesn't even look like a plane, but gets dragged out on every 'ancient astronaut' website and book.
8 - Costa Rica stone balls. Check this thread
out. A few hundred years old and
distinctly human in origin.
9 - Impossible fossils? I've never seen one yet and I've been looking for years. The famous fossilised finger? I've got one; maybe I should sell it
to a fringe website?
10 - Out of place metal objects. I've seen a lot of drawings of these things and read a lot of descriptions too. Unfortunately, most are hoaxes and
what remains are often from unknown sources. Pulling out a silver pot and saying it was found at the bottom of a coal seam isn't enough to suggest
aliens, astronauts or lost, ancient civilisations. More interestingly, there are 'out of place' stone objects in N America.
