Nubian Pyramids
The pyramids of Sudan are located more than 100 miles south of Khartoum (kar-TOOM), the capital of the country. The structures are found in the ancient city of Meroe (merr-oh-wee) … it was once the center of the Kush (koosh) kingdom … one of the oldest civilizations in the Nile region … and remained a power until the 4th century AD. The pyramids stand up to 100 feet tall … and the oldest buildings are thought to date back to around 720 BC. Experts note that all the the pyramids bear decorations that display the influences of ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome … and say the area’s most impressive structures are found at the necropolis of Meroe. While smaller in size than their Egyptian counterparts, the Nubian pyramids have a similar shape, rising from a foundation to a narrow point. But some of these pyramids have strange flat tops … that was a byproduct of explorers who pillaged the during the 19th century and reduced some sections to rubble.

Machu Picchu -- This famous lost city lies almost 8,000 feet above sea level in the Andes Mountains of southern Peru ... and can only be accessed by train or a four day trek. Machu Picchu was built in the 15th century, possibly as an estate for an Incan emperor. It was abandoned around the time of the Spanish conquest. Although locals were aware of the city’s existence, it remained unknown to the Spanish during that period. It remained largely unknown to the world until 1911 when US historian Hiram Bingham brought it to the world’s attention. Machu Picchu was named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in 2007.

Nazca Lines
These well known ancient geoglyphs were found in the Nazca Desert of Peru … and were first referenced in print in 1553 by a Spanish conquistador. The largest figures measure up to 370 feet long … and the style ranges from simple to complex. Simple lines and geometric shapes give way to designs of humans and animals, to shapes resembling trees and flowers. While experts have determined the geoglyphs were created by the Nazca culture between 500 BC to 500 AD, there are still various theories as to what purpose the designs fulfilled. Some sources indicate the patterns may have held a religious significance of some sort. Contrary to common belief, you don’t need to be in an airplane to view the lines and figures … they can be seen from surrounding foothills.

Rosetta Stone
This famous artifact was discovered by a French soldier in 1799 during the Napoleonic Wars in Egypt. In 1801, British forces defeated the French in Egypt and took the massive stone into their possession. The stone was carved in 196 BC, with three scripts being used in Egypt at the time -- Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics used for important documents … demotic (dih-MOT-ik), which was a common script … and Ancient Greek, used by Egyptian rulers of the time. All three scripts describe a decree that was issued on behalf of King Ptolemy (TOL-uh-mee) V. It took at least 20 years before the scripts could be transliterated. The Rosetta Stone’s discovery led to the decipherment of hieroglyphics, insight to ancient Egyptian history, and the field of modern field of Egyptology. It’s been on display in the British Museum since 1802, and is the most visited artifact there.

The voynich manuscript looks like super intelligent kindergarten project. Kids back then were smarter than the likes of our top scholars. Just Kidding. I love trolling but my opinions are not that far off.

You don't seem to have covered all the discoveries. There was a sunken city found in the West coast of India, which is more than 10,000 yrs old - Name of city Dwaraka. Search for videos of it

the Romans didn't influence nothing with the Sudan in the 7th century b.c. because the Sudanese are descendants of the Egyptians and therefore Rome was most likely influenced by them .

Do you think they all of a sudden learned how to construct pyramids and such 5 or 6 thousand years ago?? Expand your minds and realize there pre cursors are atleast 20K years old or even more... The oldest human historical proof can be dated to 250K years ago... our ancestors go much MUCH beyond than even a quarter million years ago. Think atleast the million mark... Structures from 500K years ago wouldnt last and all that would be left is unable to be told from usual rocks and bolders... the giant statue garden in the middle east for example is so erroded it looks like a natural geological formation, it was a magnificent field of various statues 30 40 50 feet tall depicting all sorts of things... never to be matched till this day...

Thank you for that....great site....o don't worry about sceptics of accents on this thread as that's a lack of understanding about contents, because people here are too obsessed with well...obsessive compulsive disorder....(GPS) grammar pedantic syndrome....that happens with speech as well as the ancients though....ta mate...

Great vid. Shame about your Ameri-Aussie-English and a bit of something else voice. I think they were 'erbs? This scroll was made of capper. That Mummy looks like my mate Daves Mum. The Pyramid, The Pyramid..Why is everything only about 2 - 3 thousand years old?? Don't believe it, some of what you've mentioned is so much older than you said. Forget what they told you at school.

Re MachuPichu: i think you are wrong; NOT 15 th century much much older! at any rate....--these blocks weight hundreds of tons so perfectly fit you cant slip a credit card between them; AND! they were quarried 150 miles away in Bolivia AND built there at circa 8,000 FEET .. ..--so ya buncha slaves w. ropes and rollers NOT!

Another piece of proof that the paedophile Muhammad just took the Catholic Bible, changed some names, added a few stories of their own, throw in some ridiculous rules like: all Muslims must shave their pubic hair and women mist wear bhurkas and grown men can marry innocent little girls and called it Islam

I believe the Nazca lines is as simple as being made for water aquifers. And the design most likely was to make a creative monument for the community. Some of these guesses at what some of these things were made or reasons for making seem to complicated. Maybe it was as simple as "its monument". The same for our designs we would use to make a statue or monuments representing the things we would hold as important to use as a community. Sometimes things are simple but we get caught up in trying to make discoveries more than it was in order to match our standard's of what we dream.
