Surprisingly, some of the artifacts discovered between the period of 1936 and 1938 were believed to be galvanic cells. The National Museum of Iraq was very convinced that these artifacts were used to electroplate gold on silver articles.

There are several believers and non-believers of the theory. In an experiment conducted by the Discovery Channel in 2005, it was found that these jars like objects could actually be used as galvanic cells to electroplate. However, some experts still say that there is no proof that this was the purpose of these jars in the ancient times.

The biggest controversy about the Shroud of Turin is the date of its creation. The University of Padua in Italy have conducted tests on the shroud and report it to be somewhere between 300 BC and 400 AD. Whereas, laboratories of several other Universities have concluded that the shroud dates between 1260 and 1390.

The shroud has a picture of a man resembling Jesus, undergone physical atrocities. Some people believe that the linen shroud was used to wrap Jesus after crucifixion. Amazingly, the image of the bearded figure is more clear on photographic negative.

In 1880, a group of people in Sayre, Pennsylvania made a weird discovery. They had found human skeletons of people over seven feet in height and strange skulls. All the skulls had horns on them, these were projecting from above the forehead. It was concluded by experts that the remains were from 1200 AD.

These were sent to the museum of Philadelphia, where these weird remains were allegedly stolen. Today only photographic evidence of the discovery exists. Some are of the opinion that these were creatures from a different planet. On the other hand, many people consider the discovery as a joke.

This huge stone has carvings on it, believed to be inscriptions in Paleo-Hebrew. Some scholars have deciphered them to be a précis of the Ten Commandments or the Decalogue. The earliest account of the stone was by a professor of the University of New Mexico in 1933. As the stone weighs 80 tons, it was not shifted from the original place. The site is located in Los Lunas, New Mexico.

The stories associated with these discoveries may be true or not but they surely fascinate those who come to know about them.]]>
