We fly into space, race to build skyscrapers, clone living organisms and do a lot of things that just recently seemed impossible. And while still unable to unravel the mysteries of the builders and thinkers who lived thousands of years ago. An ancient cobblestone weighing a hundred tons surprises us more than a half-palm-sized computer.

Stonehenge, UK, Salisbury


Altar, observatory, tomb, calendar? Scientists have not come to a consensus. Five thousand years ago, an annular moat and shafts around it with a diameter of 115 m appeared. A few centuries later the ancient builders delivered 80 four-ton stones here, and in another couple of centuries - 30 megaliths weighing 25 tons. The stones were set in a circle and in the form of a horseshoe. The view in which Stonehenge has reached our days is largely the result of human activity in recent centuries. People continued to work on the stones: peasants otkolupuvali pieces of amulets from them, tourists marked the territory with inscriptions, and the restorers thought out for the ancient,how is it that they stood correctly.

Pyramid of Kukulkan, Mexico, Chichen Itza


Every year, on the days of the spring and autumn equinox, thousands of tourists gather at the foot of the sanctuary of the Mayan supreme deity, the Feathered Serpent. They observe the miracle of the “appearance” of Kukulkan: the Serpent moves down along the balustrade of the main staircase. The illusion is created by the play of the triangular shadows cast by the nine platforms of the pyramid at the moment when the sun is setting, for 10 minutes illuminates its northwest corner. If the sanctuary had been shifted by even a degree, nothing like this would have happened.

Nuraghe Sardinia, Italy, Sardinia


Semiconical structures, resembling huge beehives (up to 20 m high), appeared in Sardinia at the end of the 2nd millennium BC, before the arrival of the Romans. The towers were built without foundation, of stone blocks superimposed on each other, not fastened with any mortar and held only by their own weight. The purpose of nuragues is unclear. It is characteristic that archaeologists have repeatedly found during excavations miniature models of these bronze towers.

The archaeological park at an altitude of 3700 meters and an area of ​​3000 hectares is located north of the capital of the Inca Empire.The defensive and at the same time temple complex was built at the turn of the XV – XVI centuries. Zigzag battlements, reaching 400 meters in length and six in height, are composed of 200-ton stone blocks. How the Incas installed these blocks, how they were driven one under the other is unknown. From above, Saksauaman looks like Cusco's toothed puma head (the city was laid in the shape of the sacred animal of the Incas).

Statues of "reptiloid", French Polynesia, the island of Nuku Hiva


The statues in a place called Temehea-Tohua on the Marquis Islands depict strange creatures, whose appearance in the mass consciousness is associated with aliens. They are different: there are large big-eyed “reptiloids”, and there are others: with small bodies and disproportionately large, extended head-helmets with huge eyes. They have one thing in common - an evil expression. Whether it was aliens from other worlds or simply masked priests is unknown. The statues date back to the beginning of the second millennium.

Pyramids of Yonaguni, Japan, the Ryukyu Archipelago


Monuments from huge stone platforms and pillars located under water at a depth of 5 to 40 meters were discovered in 1986. The main of these structures has the form of a pyramid. Not far from it there is a large platform with steps, similar to a stadium with spectator stands. One of the objects resembles a huge head, like the statues of moai on Easter Island.There are disputes in the scientific community: many believe that the formations lying on the ocean floor are of purely natural origin. But loners like Masaaki Kimura, a professor at the University of Ryukyu, who has repeatedly dived to the ruins, insist that it was not without a man.

Delhi Column, India, New Delhi


An iron column with a height of more than 7 meters and a weight of more than 6 tons is part of the architectural complex of Qutb Minar. It was cast in honor of King Chandragupta II in 415. For unclear reasons, the column, almost 100% made of iron, is practically corrosion resistant. Scientists try to explain this fact by various reasons: special skill and technology.ancient Indian blacksmiths, dry air and the specific climatic conditions in the Delhi area, the formation of a protective shell - in particular, as a result of the fact that the Indians anointed the sacred monument with oils and incenses. Ufologists, as usual, see in the column another proof of the intervention of extraterrestrial intelligence. But the secret of "stainless steel" is still not solved.

Baalbek Plates, Lebanon


The ruins of a Roman temple complex date back to the 1st – 2nd centuries AD. But the Romans did not build shrines from scratch. At the base of the temple of Jupiter are older plates weighing 300 tons. The western retaining wall is a series of "triliths" - three limestone blocks, each more than 19 m in length, 4 m in height and weighing about 800 tons. Roman technology was not able to lift such a weight. By the way, not one thousand years ago there is another block near the complex - under 1000 tons.
