The pic looks manipulated. the stone head doesn't have a constant texture.

I could be wrong but... that was my first impression.

The Jordan Lead Codices, (sometimes called simply the Jordanian Codices), are a collection of codices said to have been found in a cave in Jordan and first publicized in March 2011. Several scholars have pronounced them fakes. In November 2012, A regional BBC News investigation also pronounced the codices to be fake.

good catch and interesting quiz OP

You are correct.




Six miles from Urfa, an ancient city in southeastern Turkey, Klaus Schmidt has made one of the most startling archaeological discoveries of our time: massive carved stones about 11,000 years old, crafted and arranged by prehistoric people who had not yet developed metal tools or even pottery.


You're up..
