The Spheres Of Costa Rica

These spheres was first discovered by The United Fruit Company in 1930’s in Costa Rica where they were creating a banana plantation. Workmen pushed them aside with bulldozers and heavy equipment, damaging some spheres. Additionally, inspired by stories of hidden gold, workmen began to drill holes into the spheres and blow them open with sticks of dynamite. Several of the spheres were destroyed before authorities intervened. Some of the dynamited spheres have been reassembled and are currently on display at the National Museum of Costa Rica in San José.

The Crystal Skull: A Mystery And Controversy

One of the most famous crystal skull known today is the so called ancient pre-columbian Mesoamerican civilization crystal skull found in 1924 by Anna Mitchell-Hedges, the adopted daughter of British adventurer and popular author F.A. Mitchell-Hedges. She claims that she found this crystal skull buried under a collapsed altar of a temple in Lubaantun, in British Honduras, now Belize. One of the claims at the Mitchell Hedges website is that its impossible to replicate even with modern machinery. So Nat Geo contracted Barry Liu owner of Skullis to have a go at making an exact replica and they managed to make an exact replica in 8 days.

Angkor Wat: Rise And Fall Of An Empire

Inhabitants of Cambodia were one of the first peoples of Southeast Asia, although scholars continue to debate whether they migrated principally from southern China or India. The oldest vestiges of pre-historic Cambodia (stone made tools) were found in the cave of Laan Spean in Battambang with evidence suggesting the cave was inhabited around 6,000 years ago. Information is scarce although it is known that some pre-historic groups occupied caves, while others occupied large earthen mounds in lowland areas. These groups lived through rice cultivation and animal husbandry and practiced animism, worshiping both the spirits of the land and their ancestors.
