9- Carmel Indiana Roundabout\r
In the Summer of new, construction of a roundabout was underway when an engineering administrator noticed and odd stone on top of the construction sites so called “spoils” pile. After the find the city immediately notified the authorities, as Indiana state law requires that no work take place within 100 feet of the location of a historical find, archaeologists quickly allowed construction to resume, considering this find and isolated incident. But just what was this find?! Well, first of all it was dated to be about 4 thousand years old from the archaic period, and was referred to as a banner stone. The stone is believed to have several different purposes, including drilling, fire-building and for throwing spears. What exly do you think this is?\r
8- 4 Million Years Old Whale Fossil\r
\r
In new, during a construction site examination in Santa Cruz, California, palaeontologists found, way above sea level, a nearly int fossil of a whale, estimated to be 25 feet long. The place where the 4 million year-old fossil was found is now roughly 6 miles away from the coast, but it is believed that it used to be under water in the past. Two questions for you, number 1: how did the fossil ended up up there? And 2: how come did palaeontologists find the whale and not ordinary construction workers? Well, it was thanks to earthquakes and shifting of tectonic plates that the bones made their way into the hills. As for the second question, an archaeological consulting firm was hired to take a look at the site since the place showed potential for such findings. Can you imagine what would have happened if this scenario had not been thought through? The answer is simple: this fossil would probably not longer be here to tell its own story, possibly it would have been scattered all over the Scotts Valley hills.\r
What makes this discovery impressive is the f that the specimen was very well preserved even after all this time, which can offer to researchers, valuable insights into the whales ancestors.\r
Stick around for number one to see fossils that will really take your breath away.\r
7- War Ship\r
A couple of years ago, in Alexandria, Virginia, the remains of a 250 year-old ship were found in a construction site. The ship belonged to the Revolutionary War-era, and it is incredible how much history can be extred from such findings. When discoveries of the kind are made, new hints and insights are given about how things were built in the 18th century.\r
As you can see, history is everywhere, above and below ground, and we can only imagine what else will be dug out next!\r
6- 700 year-old Mummy\r
This kind of creepy 700 year-old mummy was discovered by accident in China by road workers in new. It is impressive how well preserved her features still are! The womans skin, hair and face were in remarkably good conditions, The body was found only 2 metres below the ground in a wooden tomb, and the lady was wearing a Ming Dynasty dress and jewellery, leading researchers to believe that she belonged to a powerful family. Also, the silk and cotton materials of which her clothes were made were only used at very high-profile funerals. You can tell by her delicate dermis that she was a damsel indeed.\r
5 Live Bombs \r
Within two months, 11 unexploded World War II bombs were found in Russia where construction crews are working on one of the stadiums for the 2018 World Cup. During the war, the city of Volgograd (former Stalingrad) saw some of the bloodiest battles between the Red Army and the Nazi Germans, it is believed that many more unexploded bombs are still buried in the citys vicinity. \r
Good thing they found them now and not during the matches! It is not uncommon for building sites, especially in Europe, to find unexploded bombs from the War, all sites must be dealt with care by workers, since you never know what you can stumble upon. On a similar note, another Stadium had its construction delayed because of a massive secret bomb shelter found, this time in California. Construction crews breaking ground for the San Jose Earthquakes new soccer arena found vaults under their work site. Even after all this years the war is still causing disruptions. \r
