A massive stone structure was discovered in Antarctica by scientists dating back to 4000 years. This structure is massive roughly the size of Rome’s ancient amphitheater. In a very remote area of Antarctica, a scientific team led by a geologist discovered the find. First, they found a block, then a columned structure that stood as high as hundred feet. The find was announced at a press conference. The Antarctica stone structure discovered is an exciting find. We know very little about Antarctica’s ancient history. The find has stunned experts, who had presumed that no person had set foot on Antarctica until the 1800s.
Antarctica’s bone-dry atmosphere has also preserved many artifacts, including coins that feature penguins and an unknown reptile, peanut shells, sticks resembling baseball bats, and seal-hide balls. Clearly, they did not have baseball 4000 years ago, but may be some sort of weapon resembling a baseball bat. The find, announced at a press conference, is the first evidence of ancient civilization on the icy continent and is being hailed as one of the most important archaeological digs of the century.
Ancient civilizations must have existed in Antarctica. The continent is so large that the possibility it has been vacant is not probable. Antarctica is larger than Europe, larger than the United States and Mexico combined. It is highly unlikely; Antarctica did not have ancient civilizations that thrived. We are not sure how long Antarctica has been iced over as well. We have some theories, but science has not come to consensus on this subject.
The question many have is clearly whose ruins have been found? It is not uncommon to find ruins and not know what people build or lived there. Find ruins in Antarctica is something new altogether. Who lived there 4000 years ago? Where did they go? Finding anything in Antarctica poses only more questions. With the limited access to Antarctica further research is restricted. The average person will never see Antarctica. It is a place just too far from the rest of the world. It has its own ocean. The Southern Ocean is what surrounds Antarctica.
Antarctica holds many secrets. When and what we will discover only time will tell. In the meantime, we are left to wonder. What civilizations thrived in Antarctica. What people and when lived there. An ancient map was found that properly displayed the coastline of Antarctica as if no ice or snow were present. An accurate map of Antarctica. This map dates back around six hundred years. Created by a Turkish cartographer. Now, he created the map from many other ancient maps. So, how did this map turn out such an accurate depiction of Antarctica. Not just the coastline but mountains, mountain ranges, rivers, and so on. Antarctica may have not been frozen for as long as we believe. What else can we discover in Antarctica? What other ancient findings will we make? It will be an exciting find when it does happen.
