The Most Puzzling Ancient Artifacts: Ancient springs, screws and metal. Thousands of these things -- some measure as small as 1/10,000th of an inch! -- were discovered by gold miners in the Ural Mountains of Russia in the 1990s. Dug up from a depth of 3 to 40 feet in layers of earth dating back to the upper Pleistocene era, these curious objects could be anywhere from 20,000 to 100,000 years old. by holly

This megalithic monument is in fact two temples, built side by side and enclosed within a boundary wall. The temples on Malta are the oldest temples in Europe. by Nestar
