For a long time now, man has relied on history to explain a lot of things because they usually are proven by evidence. Fossils found somewhere in East Africa prove that man existed in the form of homo-erectus, or what most people will call early man. But even in the wake of these evidences, discoveries have made us challenge history and question the facts surrounding it. So with this being said, prepare to be amazed with these 5 Shocking Discoveries That Make Us Rethink History! Ready? Well, lets begin! 1. Did Humans Walk Alongside Dinosaurs? In 2012, a group of excursionists unearthed a horn that belonged to the dinosaurs. When the horn was taken for carbon 14 testing, it was determined that the horn was only about 35000 years old. This naturally threw all archeologists off-guard and traditionally, it is believed that the dinosaurs lived over 65 million years ago only to find that the horn only dates back 35000 years. This necessitated calls for people to reconsider dating the dinosaurs. It is possible that some of these dinosaurs could have walked the earth with humans, however, most paleontologists are against the idea of re-dating the horns and instead choosing to stick with current information. 2. The Mysteries of the Piri Reis Map Piri Reis was an admiral from Ottoman who sailed the high seas during the 16th century. During this time, he often sketched the coastlines of the different continents. It was not until the 1920s that one of the maps was discovered. The map accurately depicts the eastern coast of South America, the western coast of Africa and the northern coast of Antarctica. What remains a mystery is the manner in which the Antarctica coastline was sketched. During that time, the technology available was not adequate to effectively sketch the coastline. It is also estimated that the coastline has not been free of ice since 4000BC. And the question is; How were they able to accurately depict the coastline? Hmm.... 3. The Antikythera Mechanism This is an ancient analogue computer that is believed to be over 2000 years old. It was found in a Greek shipwreck and upon careful survey, experts established that it was indeed used to determine celestial positioning and display astronomical cycles. The thing that stands out in this discovery is that it must have been created over 100 BC and way before Galileo was even born. The fact that the device exists is baffling in itself. But even more unbelievable is the fact that even during those ancient times, someone already understood the science of astronomy before any modern man could even begin to imagine. 4. The London Hammer A hiking couple in London discovered what later disputes the very existence of mankind. They saw a rock that had a piece of wood sticking out of it. They carried it home and later broke the rock to reveal the wood that had a piece of metal roughly six inches in length and an inch in diameter. When the rock was dated, it was found that it dates back 400 million years ago. The metal showed no signs of rust whatsoever. If the hammer is as old as the rock it was discovered in, then there is a high likelihood that man has been around longer than what we have ever previously imagined. Cool stuff huh? 5. The Dropa Stones Sometime in 1938 archeologists discovered graves that had humanoids buried in them in China. On close examination, the walls of the graves had drawings of what looked like the sky and inside them were disc objects that totaled 716. The stones were named Dropa stones and varied in different size. Each had holes inside with some writings that were later translated by a Chinese professor to insinuate a story that aliens fell from the sky and lived among the Ham tribe until they perished and were buried. And up to this day, the research .... still continues.
