6. NAZCA LINES
In 1930, a perplexing series of geoglyphs etched into the sand was discovered off the coast of Peru, in the desert plains of the Rio Grande de Nasca river basin – one of the driest places on Earth. Known as the Nazca Lines, they date back to 200 B.C. and occupy a land area of roughly 170 square miles.
5. THE SACSAYHUAMAN WALLS
Near the modern-day Peruvian city of Cuzco, the historic capital of the Inca Empire, a series of walls has puzzled scientists and sparked debate ever since their discovery. The walls are located among the ruins of an ancient citadel known as Sacsayhuaman- easy to remember right??- which sits at over 12,000 feet above sea level.
4. THE PIRI REIS MAP
A map discovered in Istanbul in 1929 by German theologian Gustav Deissmann proved to be anything but ordinary upon further examination. The map, which had been written on gazelle skin parchment, was traced back to Piri Reis, a well-documented cartographer and admiral of the Ottoman-Turkish navy. The map was drawn by Reis in 1513 and features Europe, North Africa, South America, and several islands, including the Azores and the Canary Islands.
3. BOLSHOI ZAYATSKY LABYRINTHS
Some of history’s most confounding artifacts were discovered in northern Russia’s Solovetsky archipelago, on an island called Bolshoi Zayatsky. As far back as 3,000 B.C., residents built villages and sacred sites on the island, including an irrigation system. Along with several of its surrounding islands, Bolshoi Zayatsky was covered in large piles of boulders, which contained bones, places of worship, and petroglyphs.
2. THE BAGHDAD BATTERY
The Baghdad Battery, also known as the Parthian Battery, is a device consisting of three artifacts that were found together in modern-day Iraq. Its components consist of a 5-and-a-half inch tall terracotta pot, a tube of copper, and an iron rod.
1. NAN MADOL
Adjacent to the eastern shore of Pohnpei, an island within the Federated States of Micronesia located in the western Pacific Ocean, lies the archaeological site of an ancient city called Nan Madol. The site consists of around 100 man-made islands, made of huge basalt rock, and a series of canals.
