There seems to be plenty of evidence suggesting past advanced technology not understood today (Giza Egypt has enough examples to validate this alone), the only thing that really seems to be absent is the willingness to embrace the possibility (which any good researcher would do until sufficient evidence proves otherwise).

The only thing I have found to be advanced from a long time ago are called known as BC-vintage batteries (made by the Parthians, who dominated the Baghdad region between 250 BC and 224 AD.
They are very simple. Thin sheetcopper was soldered into a cylinder less than four inches long and about an inch in diameter.
You can find at the relieft at the Temple of Hathor at Dendera pictures on the walls of people holding what looks like light bulbs! Called at that time "Djed" pillars.

You might find such books convincing but I have never found one that actually stood up to protracted scrutiny. They make alright science fiction but lousy science.
The last such one I read was Graham Hancock's "Fingerprints of the Gods" and it followed the same pathway carved by such books as "The Chariot of the Gods"; long on supposition and short on verifiable fact. But hey, if you like such things more power to you, but don't call them science because they are not.

Gazrok! please for one moment try getting yourself a rationale view point!
Those iron beams etc are the case left by two airliners... incase of nuclear blast, it would be molten iron, and plastic wont even be found i guess...
I'd strongly recommend looking at some photos of Nagasaki and Hiroshima after the atom bombs were dropped on it, as you'll see just how much is left.
And those were very very weak bombs.
If Russia were to drop their tsar bomb on Washington, all you would see is ash.
A nuclear war between two civilizations would most likely have greater tonage than hiroshima because they would occur when the technology is greater.
