The Unfinished Obelisk is the largest known ancient obelisk and is located in the northern region of the stone quarries of ancient Egypt and it is taller than any known obelisk ever raised. It is one of the most famous stones ever excavated. Its creation was ordered by Hut Chipset 1508 - 1458 bc. possibly to complement what would later be known as the Lateran obelisk which was originally at Karnak and was later brought to the Lateran Palace in Rome.

The unfinished obelisk is nearly one-third larger than any ancient Egyptian obelisk ever erected. If finished it would have measured around 42 meters approximately 137 feet and would have weighed nearly 1090 metric tons. 1,200 tons a weight equal to about 200 African elephants. The work on the unfinished obelisk had been abandoned due to clearly visible cracks that appeared in the granite.

Virtually nothing is known about which Pharaoh ordered the obelisk and where it was supposed to be erected. Besides the unfinished obelisk an unfinished partly worked, obelisk base was discovered in 2005 at the quarries of Ozma. There also discovered were some rock carvings and remains that may correspond to the site where most of the famous obelisks were worked. All these quarries in Aswan and the unfinished objects are an open-air Museum and are officially protected by the Egyptian government as an archaeological site.

Still nobody can identify the person behind the handwritten artifact that's written in an unknown language in addition to the unreadable text. 

It is adorned with illustrations of unidentifiable plants and objects. Naturally the manuscript has become a source of constant evolving conspiracy theories. The last one claims that it was created as a sophisticated practical joke however writing 240 pages of text using an elaborate sign system might be too much even for a prankster.

So the story goes, Workers digging a hole for a fence post near Lake Winnipesaukee in the central part of this New England state found a lump of clay. That seemed out of place there was something inside a dark odd-looking egg-shaped stone with a variety of carvings. It was including a face, teepee, ear of corn and star-like circles and there were many questions who made this stone and why. How old was it? how was it carved?

Archaeologists have revealed the remains of a 13th century child skeleton which they found underneath a horse and alongside lots of other animals. The discovery was made back in 2017 during normal urban rehabilitation works near the local church. They were amazed to find a child skeleton underneath a horse along with lots of other animals. Although the finds are still being investigated. The researchers think that the weapons in the pit might suggest the child's death was collateral damage of the violence during the reconquest of the sylphs and that no care was taken with burying.

The body this unusual variety of animals piled together is what makes this finding bizarre and the discarded child skeleton along with these makes it more shocking. The truth is that throughout our history there have been causes of great brutality that can only be revealed through archaeology. Personally I think this may be one of those it is a unique.
