Gold seal - Ishtar as Mistress of Animals, Turkmenistan, ca 2000 BC, Schaffhausen Museum BACTRIAN OR PERSIAN?

In cleared-away areas of the upper Amazon basin, researchers, using satellite imagery, have recently pinpointed a vast network of monumental earthworks, including geometrically aligned roads and structures, constructed by a hitherto unknown civilization.

This archaeological finding was discovered in 1998. The artifact has an appearance of an electronic component embedded in a naturally formed stone (granite, quartz, feldspar, mica). It resembles an electronic XLR connector and reveals no trace of having been glued or welded. It shows a weak magnetic attraction, and ohm meter readings reveal that it has a strength approaching that of an open circuit. The three-pronged plug does not appear to be manufactured out of wood, plastic, rubber, metal

Ancient Symbols: The Swastika in different cultures. Many believe that the symbol originated in the ancient Sumerian civilisation (5300-1940BC).
