"The massive European network of Stone Age tunnels that weaves from Scotland to Turkey "Evidence of Stone Age tunnels has been found under hundreds of Neolithic settlements all over Europe - the fact that so many have survived after 12,000 years shows the original tunnel network must have been huge."

Very Early Viking Burial. The carefully stacked remains of 33 men were buried in the war boat that brought them from Scandinavia to an Estonian island more than a century before the Vikings are thought to have been able to sail across such distances. The archaeologists believe the men died in a battle some time between 700 and 750, perhaps almost as much as a century before the Viking Age officially began.

Also known as the “Princess of Altai,” this 2,500-year-old woman was discovered in Siberia in 1993. Although the meaning of the tattoos that stretch down her arms are uncertain, the deer theme is repeated on her tree trunk coffin.

Most people know about Nazca Lines however another, less known, unexplained mystery in Peru is located near Pisco Valley on a plain called Cajamarquilla. Thousands of man-sized holes are carved into the barren rock. These strange holes, stretching for a mile over uneven mountain terrain, were here for so long that the local people have no idea who made them, or why. Funny thing is no one really saw the big picture until the area was seen from the air.

The oldest door in Britain in Westminster Abbey -A 900-year-old door was put in place in the 1050s, during the reign of the Abbey's founder, Edward the Confessor. The door, which measures 6.5ft by 4ft, was made from one tree which probably grew between AD 924 and 1030. Simon Thurley, of English Heritage, said: "It is incredible to think that when the door was made the Norman Conquest had not yet happened and William of Normandy was still a young man of about 20." That's pretty cool.

Undressed funeral effigy of Catherine de Valois, Queen of England. Henry V's queen died in 1437.
