Mankind’s history is like one big jigsaw puzzle, if that puzzle’s pieces had been spilled down the back of the sofa and fallen through the floorboards.

The Seven Mayan Prophecies foretold by the Mayan people claimed that a series of devastating events would occur to humanity beginning in 1999 and ending with Earth’s apparent destruction on December 21st 2012. The ancient kingdoms of Egypt, Greece and the Mycenaeans were some of the most influential civilizations in human history, with many of their teachings and discoveries forming the basis of our modern scientific, religious and philosophical ideas. The Nazca Civilization existed in modern-day Peru between 100BC and 800AD, and this intriguing society seemed strangely advanced considering when and where they lived. The Sumerian people of southern-Mesopotamia were one of if not the very first examples of civilised society here on Earth, yet we still have a lot of questions about where these people came from, where their language was derived from, and where their genetic descendants are today. In the centuries since the west first clasped eyes on Easter Island’s Moai statues, archaeologists have been confused over how the relatively primitive Rapa Nui people moved these big hunks of rock. Here’s another mysterious bunch of old timey rocks for you, and we still don’t know exactly how the Stone-age people of southern-Britain built this astonishing rock formation either. Viking lore is well known to many of us today thanks to the simple fact that it contains all kinds of awesome, but what remained a mystery for quite some time was exactly how these sea-faring Scandinavians interacted with their Norse mythology on a daily basis.
