How are archaeological excavations

Unearth — so as to raise the entire thickness of the earth, which for centuries and millennia were deposited by winds, torrents of water have been compounded by the remains of rotting plants, to lift so as not to disturb all that was left, lost or abandoned in times long past. The layer of earth over the remains of the abandoned settlements and other traces of human life are growing and now annually and daily. According to experts, every year up in the air, and then deposited 5 million cubic kilometers of rock. Water dilute and carry from place to place more soil.

“Archaeology is the science of the spade”, — stated in older textbooks. It is not entirely accurate. Unearth has not only a shovel but also with a knife medical scalpel and even a watercolor brush. Before starting the excavations, the surface of the monument to break by means of pegs into equal squares of size 1 (1x 1) or 4 (2 x 2) m2. Each peg is numbered and applied to the plan. This is called the grid. The mesh helps to record findings on the plans and drawings. During excavation all work is carried out manually. To mechanize this difficult, delicate and responsible task as yet impossible. Only the mechanized removal of earth from the excavation. Very often multilayer monuments— usually the places in which humans settled repeatedly.

In Sredniaia and the middle East, where they built mud-brick mud-brick houses, layered on each other the ruins of ancient cities formed hills with a height of several tens of meters — telly. To understand this multi-layered monument is difficult. But even more difficult to stratify those ancient settlements, where the houses were built of wood. From these settlements remains only a thin layer of decayed wood residue, ash, embers, and not fully decayed organic residues. This layer of dark color is visible in the crumbling wall of a ravine or at the edge of the eroded river Bank. In archaeology this layer is called cultural layer, Continue reading

Forbidden archaeology. What is being hidden?

Just need to make a reservation, that scientists in every way by hook or by crook to hide this information, because it does not fit into those foundations of peace, which we describe from childhood history books.

Long ago on the planet are the place of burial, and often the remains of the dead giant people. They excavated around the world, both on land and under water in the seas and oceans. Another confirmation – a godsend in Yakutia.

A group of independent researchers working on this issue for many years and formed a true picture of what was on our planet is actually 12-20 000 years ago. But it’s not so long ago!

The growth of the giants during the life ranged from 4 to 12 meters, in addition to the great physical strength they possessed phenomenal mental abilities. Is this the mysterious Atlantean civilization, which some say mythical, while others really existed and the dead. Now, the researchers claim that this civilization of giants built the pyramids not only in Egypt but throughout the planet, the total number of pyramids built by them has more than 600. The construction was carried out in a strictly specified geometry. Pyramids were erected without the use of any slave forces with the help of simple technology that is used now, it is a common formwork, ie, blocks do not move for a long distance, and poured a solid concrete composition in derevyannye!
