Below is a list of Still Unexplained mysteries of the world.

Crystal Skulls

There are a number of crystal skulls in museums, and private ownership, claimed to be pre-Columbian Mesoamerican artifacts. Most are exceptionally well crafted, some incredibly well crafted, to a standard hard to match with modern tools.

Some of the skulls are believed to have been manufactured in Europe during the early 1900s, with the intention of selling them as ancient artifacts. Nobody has ever claimed responsibility for creating the skulls, surely someone with that amount of skill would want recognition. The Mitchell-Hedges skull is regarded as the most detailed of them all, manufactured in a way that intrigues researchers to this day.

For every person that try's to give a scientific explanation for the skulls, there is another with theories of ancient civilizations with exceptional powers, or even civilizations from other planets.

Nazca Lines

The Nazca Lines are a series of large ancient images, of animals and straight lines, made in the surface of the Nazca Desert of Peru. The high, arid plateau, stretches more than 50 miles. One theory is, the Nazca people created them to be seen by their gods in the sky.

Some individuals believe the Nazca Lines could not have been made without some form of manned flight to see the figures properly. Others believe they are evidence of an advanced early civilization that history never recorded, proof that early man had contact with extraterrestrials

Follow the links below to see the different theories, of which there are many.

Loch Monsters

The Loch Ness Monster is the most famous of the loch monsters, reputed to inhabit Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands. Speculation is the creature represents a line of long-surviving plesiosaurs. There have been many sightings of the creature, mainly from the 1930s.

One thing that seems odd is, that since the mass production of digital cameras, nobody has managed to get a clear photo of the beast.

One fact that shows, tales of sea or loch monsters should never be ignored, is the Giant Squid. Seamen were ridiculed for centuries over tales of them being attacked by these huge sea monsters. More stories of Giant Squid emerged during WWII, when many sailors, in the sea after their ships had been sunk, began reporting stories of being attacked by giant squid. The first image of a live mature giant squid was taken January 15th 2002, on Goshiki beach, Japan.

Giant Anacondas

Reports of giant anacondas date back as far as the discovery of South America, when sightings of anacondas upwards of 150 feet began to circulate amongst colonists. The topic has been subject of debate ever since among cryptozoologists and zoologists.

Anacondas normally grow to a size of 20 ft and 40 stone in weight. Although some python species can grow longer in length, the anaconda, particularly the Green Anaconda, is the heaviest and largest in terms of diameter of all snakes, often considered the largest snake in the world.

There have been claims of people shooting anacondas in South America, then measuring them at over 60 feet, although those claims could not be proven.

Fossils of the largest snakes found so far, Titanoboa, from 60 to 58 million years ago, show them being about 60 feet in length.

Prehistoric Drilling

In 1996, a tube-drilled piece of granite was put on display in the Cairo Museum, without any associated identifying information. The grooves on the granite seem to show the ancient Egyptians had the technology to drill and cut stone, as fast, if not faster than masons of today with the latest tools.

The most famous account of ancient drilling is of the sarcophagus in the King's chamber of the Great Pyramid. The tools used left a tube drill mark on the top inside of the box. Some masons have claimed, the sarcophagus was drilled out at far greater speed than could be achieved today.

There is also evidence of drilling hard stone in South America, as can be found through the links below.


Sarcophagus in the King's Chamber


Sacsayhuaman is a walled complex near the old city of Cusco / Peru, at an altitude of 12,000 feet. It was built by the prehistoric indigenous people of the Killke culture about 1100 AD. They were superseded by the Inca, who occupied and expanded the complex beginning about 1200 AD.

There are no other walls like these. They are different from Stonehenge, different from the Pyramids of the Egyptians and the Maya, different from any of the other ancient monolithic stone-works.

The giant stones fit so perfectly, no blade of grass or steel can slide between them. There is no mortar. They often join in complex and irregular surfaces, something that has not been achieved by any present day masons that have attempted to copy the work.




Pumapunku is part of a large temple complex, or monument group, that is part of the Tiwanaku Site near Tiwanaku / Bolivia. The buildings are dated to about A.D. 536-600.

The processes and technologies involved in the creation of these temples are still not fully understood. The largest of the stone blocks is 7.81 meters long, 5.17 meters wide, averages 1.07 meters thick, and estimated to weigh about 131 metric tons. Each stone was finely cut to interlock with the surrounding stones. The blocks fit together like a puzzle, forming load-bearing joints without the use of mortar.

UFO and alien experts believe the people who built these stones had contact with extraterrestrial beings.

Scientists call these theories bunk, but cannot provide any better explanation for how primitive humans managed to fit 200-ton stones together, or planned the intricate process without the ability to read or write.



Crop Circles

Crop circles are unexplained patterns found in fields, over tree-tops, and in ice and snow. They are most often found in wheat or corn fields, but have also been found in oat, rape (canola), and barley. They are a world wide phenomena, highlighted in England, Netherlands, United States, and Australia.

There were two people in England claiming to be hoaxers of circles from the 1970s, although they could not have created all the circles. No doubt, many crop circles are man made. The question is, how many, if any, are not man made.

Some crop circles are huge complex design, that if man made, would take many hours of hard work to create, and many more hours designing.

There have also been sightings of UFOs over crop circles. One theory is, ancient people built structures to be seen from high above, maybe a way of communicating with Aliens in spacecraft. Could crop circles be a way of Aliens leaving messages, and could the man made crop circles be confusing or intriguing the Aliens.

Aliens & UFOs

There have been UFO sightings documented throughout history, such as in cave paintings, paintings and inscriptions on walls in ancient Egyptian buildings. More recently, as well as many ordinary civilians, astronauts, and pilots backed up by radar operators, have been reporting UFO sightings.

There are also reports, at least four alien space craft have crashed on earth, with the craft and bodies being continually examined by covert government agencies. Reports also state, some advanced technology used in manufacturing today, was back-engineered from captured alien space craft. Researchers state, from the 1950s, there has been a massif leap in technology, that could only have occurred after researching alien craft.

Alien encounters throughout history, would certainly explain why some ancient civilizations, were seemingly using advanced technology in their buildings, as seen in some cases above. Also, the images in paintings and inscriptions on walls.
