20 Items Found On Earth That Still Can’t Be Explained

Objects uncovered by archeologists often give us fascinating insights into past civilizations. But some artifacts however, seem to throw up more questions than answers, and arguably make us doubt everything we think we know about the world.

Out-of-place artifact also known as OOPArt is actually a real term coined by American naturalist and cryptozoologist Ivan T Sanderson for an object of historical, archaeological, or paleontological interest found in a very unusual or seemingly impossible context.

Check out these 20 items found on earth that can’t be explained, it will definitely change your perspective on many things in your every day life!!

These object are truly baffling such as:

A Roman Dodecahedron is a small hollow object made of bronze or stone, with a dodecahedral shape: twelve flat pentagonal faces, each face having a circular hole of varying diameter in the middle, the holes connecting to the hollowed-out center. Roman dodecahedra date from the 2nd or 3rd centuries CE. These Roman dodecahedrons, have puzzled archaeologists. More than 100 of them have been discovered across Europe, and no one has yet found conclusive proof of what they were actually meant for. According to some, they were used as dice or lucky charms; other theories, meanwhile, suggest that they were utilized to measure the trajectory of projectiles or even as devices to help with the weaving of gloves.

We need to get a remote viewer on this one. Send it to Connie. This is a good puzzle.
