There are those who believe that we are the first advanced civilizations that have ever populated the Earth. Then there are those who would argue that there were well-developed societies before us and that history has done its best to cover them up. These finds will make you question just who is right here and what the real history of the Earth may be. Oh and if you answered Monday’s quiz question, stick around to see who we’ve chosen to be featured with the correct answer! This is Artifacts That PROVE Past Advanced Civilizations Existed!

4. Roman Concrete
We all know that a lot of ancient Roman buildings are still standing today, and how is that possible, you may ask? The fact that they’re still around show that Roman concrete had some key advantages over the concrete of today. The big secret and the reason for its durability is the use of volcanic ash in the mix. The ash helps to prevent cracks from spreading. The material was used widely by the middle of the 1st century, and some Roman concretes were even able to be used underwater. This helped in the building of bridges and any other type of waterside construction. Some corporations today are looking into the uses of Roman concrete and are, in the process, cutting back on their environmental footprint. Supporters of the concrete claim it costs up to 60% less due to it requiring less cement and its longer lifespan. The durability is so exceptional that Roman concrete used underwater 2,000 years ago shows little to no wear at all today. Just this thinking and producing such a high-quality, durable, environmentally-friendly product so long ago shows how advanced the Romans really were.
3. Damascus Steel
Swords were once made in the Middle East of an amazingly strong material called Damascus Steel. It was produced using raw material from Asia called Wootz steel. These blades were resistant to shattering, super tough, and able to be honed to extreme sharpness and resilience. It disappeared for a time, and metal as strong as Damascus steel wasn’t forged again until the Industrial Revolution. It took electron microscopes to reveal the secrets of the steel, and it wasn’t until relatively recently that we were able to take a look and find out just went into it. It was so strong due to some added materials, including manganese, nickel, vanadium, chromium, cobalt, milkweed, Cassia auriculata bark, and traces of some rare elements. It was shown that the combination of these elements mixed in with the source material, Wootz steel, a chemical reaction occurred, making the steel stronger and tougher. “Carbide nanotubes,” which are tough tubes of carbon, are expressed on the surface through this process, and those make the blade extremely hard and durable.
2. Coso Artifact
Found in the Coso Mountains in California in 1961, the Coso Artifact is debated over and could be evidence of an ancient advanced civilization! The owners of a gem shop went out prospecting and collected a bunch of geodes to open up back at their shop. They then cracked into a geode that didn’t contain a fossil or rare gem, but they instead found a strange, mechanical artifact. Many believe that the object is a kind of spark plug, and it contains rings of copper, a magnetic rod, a steel spring, and has a porcelain exterior. To make matters even more mysterious, there’s a white, powdery substance inside that is still unidentified. It was found to be around 500,000 years old, which was determined by the age of the marine fossils that covered its surface. Critics of the piece say that the stone that encased the artifact wasn’t a geode but a concretion, which can form over just years or decades. However, if the artifact is legitimately 500,000-years-old, it would represent a significant historical and scientific anomaly. Spark plugs were, as far as we know, invented in the 19th century, so it could prove that there were once super advanced civilizations!
