Forbidden archeology

How in the world an unidentified and interesting. I not long ago, for example, wrote about the giants.

Actually man is not often able to penetrate into the depths of the earth’s mysteries. Occasionally people get a chance like this, including forbidden archeology allows you to learn a lot. For Example, Hyperborea.

So what happened on the mountain of the Stavropol land in 2011 on 17 August. Scientists have found it an amazing phenomenon that, even after a century, humanity can hardly be called ordinary. “Man-RAM”- bones that, once buried here, in the trunk and extremities resembled a lamb, but his skull was human, and from there is not particularly abstruse name. Who knows whether God is a creature, or unusual worship of believers of the past centuries…

Real archaeological discovery made in 2011 – “Man-RAM”.

Sergey Savenko – the worker of Museum of local lore in the city of Pyatigorsk, said: “It’s not even the first time that such has happened before, for example, on the lands of the Crimea have found the body is buried. His body had no signs of interference, but the limbs were cut off, and instead fastened the bones of the goat” .Many people asked – so what is this anyway? The body was unified with the head from birth, or later human activity? Head of Otdelenia in the Stavropol Museum Anna Shvyreva concluded that the head before his death, belonged to the guy about 25 years. Continue reading

In the forests of Estonia do not only “black archeologists”, but hunters explosives

After Estonian mass media spread the information that the Capo was arrested in IDA-Virumaa two people suspected of trafficking in explosives, having carried one of them to the category of so-called “black archeologists”, the correspondent of Delfi decided to find out opinion about such people in person, organizing a legal search of the remains of fallen soldiers and relics of the war.

Head of military history club “Otsing” (“Search”) Igor Sedunov, expressed his attitude to “black diggers” in one word: “Vandals”.

– They are divided into several categories. Now in IDA-Viru County is a very large unemployment rate. And some buy a metal detector and looking for old metal, which then pass. Along the way, they destroy historical relics that can be used in Museum expositions.

The second category, according to Igor Sedunova, most immoral.

– These “black diggers” in the woods looking for the remains of fallen soldiers — Soviet, German. They take away the dead preserved medals, tokens, inscribed medallions, buckles, medals, personal things, which could subsequently determine the identity of the remains and sell them. And then we find only disturbed the bones, and the trace of pageselectronic is lost. And he remains the unknown soldier. Moreover, the remains, as a rule, they are not buried, but thrown. We then collect and perezahoranivayut as missing.

As for those who like the search of explosives for the purpose of personal gain, Sedunov can’t understand how this category of “black diggers” are still preserved.

I thought that such people are no more, and, it turns out there, and they carry on their illegal trade. Explosives are deadly finds. And, we must assume that those who have them buy explosives during the war, planning the murder. The society unstable, someone to fire, someone will lose his job and be left without a source of income — become angry, he “frustrate the roof” and he starts to do silly things, which people can get hurt. And terrorism with explosives, too, because “thriving” in the world. Continue reading
