    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

      THE KINGOODIE HAMMER found in 1844 at a quarry in Scotland is iron with a wooden handle fixed within a sandstone block thought to be 400 million years old. No one can explain how this iron nail & wooden hammer is so solidly entrenched in a piece of sandstone hundreds of millions of years old! Very easy to explain when you know the earth is only thousands, not millions, of years old!!!

      THE KINGOODIE HAMMER Found in1844 at the Kingoodie Quarry of Scotland, is an iron nail and a wooden handle found fixed within a Sandstone block from the MESOZOIC ERA! No one can explain how this iron nail & wooden hammer is so solidly entrenched in a piece of sandstone to survive for 400 million of years!

      THE KINGOODIE HAMMER Found in1844 at the Kingoodie Quarry of Scotland, is an IRON NAIL (also with what appears to be a WOODEN HANDLE!!) is found fixed within a Sandstone block from the MESOZOIC ERA! Even though it's unlikely for iron to survive for 400 million yrs & no theories are currently suggested for how this anomaly has come to past. None can explain how this iron nail & wooden hammer is so solidly entrenched in a piece of sandstone hundreds of millions of years old!

    It is highly unlikely that any of the stones in Puma Punku were cut using ancient stone cutting techniques, at least not those that we are aware of. The stones in Puma Punku are made up of granite, and diorite, and the only stone that is harder that those two, is the diamond. If the people who built this place cut these stones using stone cutting techniques, then they would had to have used diamond tools. If they didn't use diamonds to cut these stones, then what did they use?

    Ancient Historys Biggest Mysteries The Carnac Stones are 3,000 megalithic stones located on the coast of Brittany, France. The stones are arranged in perfect lines over a distance of 12 kilometers and were built in the Neolithic age by an unknown group of people. To date, the most perplexing aspect of the Carnac Stones is why so many stones have been placed so symmetrically in one specific spot.

    The stone is estimated to have been created somewhere between 10 to 12 thousand years ago. It is basically a globe of our planet. All of the main continents are depicted on the stone and for the most part they are shown in their correct locations and their correct relative sizes. How could anyone possibly know the geographic locations and sizes of all the worlds land masses that long ago?

    A stone head that was found “somewhere in the Guatemalan jungle” and, soon after its discovery, disappeared. The photo above was taken in the 1950s by the man who owned the land the head was located on, but after he died, the mysterious structure faded back into obscurity. While the head is theorized to potentially be an anomaly of the Olmec stone heads (it does not match their aesthetic), some think it could possibly be a remnant of a yet undiscovered culture.
