Then here's a grossly incomplete timeline for you to rip into. I've filtered a lot of questionable ones out and there's probably a million more,
but it'll give you something to bitch about...
Captain LJB's Chronology of Out of Place Artifacts (OOParts)
- Origin Dates are all very, very approximate, of course.
- This Does Not take into account the possibility of hoaxes or million-to-one freaks of nature (with the exception of the crystal skulls, the London
hammer, and the Dropa stones--for today they're considered hoaxes and I've eliminated them from the timeline).
- Coal seems to be particular attractive to these anomalies.
- The dates, while crude, were arranged in such as fashion so as to (hopefully) discover a Pattern to advanced prehistorical technology or habitation
