12 Archeological And Paleontological Discoveries That Would Have Made Indiana Jones Run In Breathless Terror
It is often said that history is written by the victors, but what is often left out of the narrative are the stories that were just incredibly batshit weird. From the wealthy to the poor, from the powerful to the powerless, this list will take you on a journey through time to explore some of the most creepy, disgusting, or terrifying archeological finds ever recorded. We will look at the tombs of the wealthy and the pits of the poor, the child sacrifices in Peru, the human sacrifices in the Aztec Empire, the knightly porridge and raisins of Anthony de Lucy, the luxurious lifestyle of Lady Dai, the use of technology in ancient burial sites, the giant penguin that has gone extinct, the mysterious Diquís Spheres, the hidden human skulls of Switzerland, and the ancient 12-sided object from Roman times. Finally, we will explore the Llullaillaco Maiden, who was sacrificed in an Incan ritual and likely sedated with coca and alcohol before her death.
