The Kingoodie Hammer (The London Hammer) The Kingoodie artifact is an object with the characteristics of a corroded iron nail found in a block of sandstone in 1844 in the Kingoodie Quarry in Kingoodie, Scotland. David Brewster reported to the British Association that the nail was found when a rough block of stone was being prepared for dressing. The nail was discovered when the overlying clay was cleared from the stone, with half an inch (12.5 mm) of the nail projecting into the clay

In the summer of 1998, Russian scientists who were investigating the remains of a meteorite 300 km southwest of Moscow discovered a piece of rock which enclosed an iron screw. Geologists estimate that the age of the rock is 300-320 million years. At that time, not only were there no intelligent life forms on earth, there weren't even dinosaurs. Scientists initially thought that the screw was in a farm machine. But the screw was firmly fixed in the rock.

Humans were not around 65 million years ago, never mind people who could work metal. So how does science explain metallic tubes dug out of 65-million-year-old Cretaceous chalk in France? In 1885 a block of coal was broken open to find a metal cube obviously worked by intelligent hands. In 1912 employees at an electric plant broke apart a large chunk of coal out of which fell an iron pot! A nail was found embedded in a sandstone block from the Mesozoic Era. And there are many more such anomalies.

In 1898 a stone was found by a Swedish immigrant on his farm near the small village of Kensington, Minnesota. The stone, a small block of a hard sandstone, greywacke, lay clasped in the roots of a young aspen tree. On two of its sides was an inscription in Swedish written in runes telling of how 8 Swedes [‘Goths’] and 22 Norwegians on an exploration journey 14 days west of Vinland had met with disaster. While some men were away fishing, 10 of the others had been killed. The date of this tragedy
