Some very strange mysteries from history.

The Bog Bodies

This puzzle may even be an issue for those amazing agents from CSI and so forth! The swamp bodies are many old cadavers discovered covered around the northern marshes and wetlands of Northern Europe. These bodies are surprisingly all around saved, some going back 2,000 years. A large portion of these bodies have indications of torment and other medieval “fun”, which have made a few analysts proposing that these terrible casualties were the consequence of custom penances.

The Mystery Of the fall of the Minoans

The Minoans are best known for the legend of Theseus and the Minotaur, however it is in truth the death of this once-incredible civilisation that is all the more intriguing. While numerous students of history focus on the fall of the Roman Empire, the fall of the Minoans, who dwelled on the island of Crete, is an equivalent, if not more noteworthy riddle. Three and a half thousand years prior the island was shaken by an enormous volcanic emission on the neighboring Thera Island.

Archaeologists uncovered tablets which have demonstrated that the Minoans carried on for an additional 50 years after the emission, before at long last collapsing. Speculations of what at last finished them have run from volcanic powder covering the island and destroying harvests to the debilitated society in the long run getting assumed control by attacking Greeks.

An Oxford history specialist who looked at old records guarantees that the lost roman army established a residential community close to the Gobi forsake named Liqian, which in Chinese means Rome. DNA tests are being directed to answer that claim and ideally clarify a portion of the inhabitants’ green eyes, blonde hair, and attachment to bullfighting.

The Mystery Of Helike

In the late second century AD, the Greek essayist Pausanias composed a record of how (4-500 years prior?) in one night an effective seismic tremor pulverized the colossal city of Helike, with a Tsunami washing ceaselessly what stayed of the once-prospering city. The city, capital of the Achaean League, was a love focus committed to the old god Poseidon, divine force of the ocean.

There was no hint of the amazing society specified outside of the antiquated Greek works until 1861, when a paleologist discovered some plunder thought to have originated from Helike – a bronze coin with the unmistakable head of Poseidon. In 2001, a couple of archaeologists figured out how to find the vestiges of Helike underneath the mud and rock of the drift, and are right now attempting to peice together the ascent and sudden fall of what has been known as the “genuine” Atlantis.
