Ages Undreamed Of vol.6 Weird Artifacts

Decided I may as well do another feature on some of the weird ancient things that have helped inspire my first novel-and there is more strangeness than I have time to post about-but these in particular caught my fancy. While its possible some may be hoaxes, I personally disagree with believing everything is just because it is odd and out of place. The truth is out there. Had this up before but that was a while and a lot less followers ago. Found out in the Utah desert, it was reburied shortly after this picture was taken by the old Native American who found it-Belonged to the Old Ones he said and in the earth with them.
Quite an interesting piece-an ancient bell. Who rung such a thing and for whom did it toll?
I want to visit this one. Just outside Los Lunas New Mexico is a hill, somewhat fortified with stacked stone and at the base of the hill through a gorge leading up is this fallen stone marker. Some have interpreted it to be the 10 Commandments in an archaic Hebrew dialect. According to ancient customs it would be a proper gateway proclamation to the world as it were.
This is a great piece, a horned human skull. Guess all those rumors were true.This glyph is a little odd and I have not seen its like before in anything else in America. It is reminiscent to me of the Nazca lines or perhaps the sign of Jhebbal Sag.
Most of these pics are thanks to the Ancient Treasure Hunter Steve Shaffer who was kind enough to give me a back cover blurb on my novel.

Fascinating! No wonder you were inspired!

I love the term "old ones". It makes me want to learn more about traditional Native American history--you know, the kind they share with each other that we don't heart.

These photos definitely intrigue me. I want to know more.

Thanks Suzette and Lisa, I'm always fascinated by the strange because there is always a story to tell about them that begs to be told.

That stone marker with the possible archaic Hebrew dialect is very interesting! It definitely fuels the creative fires.

That's really cool, especially the sword!!

Always interesting things out there to inspire us, Amalia.

Void-I love finding stories about this kinda stuff-lots of cool things down in Arizona too.

Voidwalker said...

Yeah, this whole area is alive with history and culture. I remember finding an actual arrowhead once. No swords yet though :P

David J. West said...

Thats still pretty cool.

BTW Chapters (here in Canada) seems to be taking their sweet time in stocking your book. Just checked online at their site, isn't showing up yet.

Meh, i'll try them in another week!
