    Most Egyptian funerary masks were made of solid gold, but in 1939, archaeologist Pierre Montet discovered the tomb of Pharaoh Psusennes and his entire sarcophagus of pure silver. It has been the only one ever discovered. Its discovery had little fan fare because it was found on the eve of World War II and Egyptologists didn't want it to fall into enemy hands. The discovery is revered to be equal to the discovery of King Tut's tomb in 1922, but most of the world is unaware of its existence.

      Most Egyptian funerary mask are made of solid gold, but in 1939, an archaeologists named Pierre Montet discovered the royal tomb of the Pharaoh Psusennes, and found his entire sarcophagus to be of pure silver, the only one like it that has ever been discovered. Its discovery had little fan fare, because it was found on the eve of World War II, and Egyptologists didn't want the discovery to fall into enemy hands. There were many other treasures found in the tomb, like King Tut's.

    "Chamber of Djed" from the tomb of Seti I (longest tomb in the Valley of kings near luxor)

    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.

    The royal quarters of Cleopatra were discovered sunken off the shores of Alexandria. A team of marine archaeologists, led by Frenchman, Franck Goddio, began excavating the ancient city in 1998.

Amongst the discoveries were the foundations of the palace, shipwrecks, red granite columns, and statues of the goddess Isis and a sphinx.

The words on the blackboard read, "The Jew is our greatest enemy! Beware of the Jew!"

    Alan Turing, helped win World War II by inventing a computer than could decrypt German messages encoded with the Enigma machine. In addition, he formally described the concepts of algorithms and computation. He proved that anything computable on one machine, is computable on another, given enough time. He is the father of computer science. After the war he was tried in court for being gay, found guilty, forced to take castration pills, and then driven to suicide. Britain has apologized.
