    High Collars vs. Long Necks and Kayan People

    What's even more concerning with this carving is the fact that there appears to be human or humanoids in jars along side various animals on the left side of the carving. Second shelf from the bottom, second jar from the left appears to be 2 humanoids in a jar with what appear to be horns growing...

    Question | Two objects on Horatius Cocles Stopping King Porsena painting

    Photo one appears to be a revolving canon of some sorts, however, it doesn't look much like the revolving cannon found here. According to the official narrative, the revolving cannon was not prototyped until 1871. The second photo appears to be a mortar of some sorts, likely similar to the...

I can not tell exactly, but it appears that some of the bones have been burned, specifically the skull in the foreground just to the right of the image center. There is also a suspicious lack of clothing and...

    Sounds like one of the many examples of found tech. IMHO, the fact that Estarriol was supposedly smart enough to pull the plans for this sub out of the aether, but not smart enough to realize that an underwater gun is impractical at the time speaks volumes(not to mention the question of what...
