Earth is a fascinating planet, the more we we get to know about it, the more intriguing it becomes! And these top mysterious discoveries prove that Earth can still spring up some incredible stories.

The Voynich Manuscript

An illustrated manuscript, known as ‘The Voynich Manuscript,’ remains a mystery to historians. In part, this is because the text has no known origin, thus rendering it almost impossible to track.

Still, that hasn’t stopped linguists and scholars attempting to solve the writing’s meaning. In fact, two people came forward in 2014, with one attributing the text to an ancient Mexican dialect, while the other believed it was a coded Asian language. However, through assessing the papers material, historians have at least managed to date the document to the early 15th century.

Like the well-known British Stone Structure, Stonehenge, The Gate of the Sun’s solid arch construction, which sits over 12,500 feet above sea-level, is just as mysterious.

Some scientists even believe the Bolivian location to be home to some of earliest first forms of human civilization.

European Stone Age Tunnels

Labeled the ‘Ancient European Highways’ by Dr. Heinrich Kusch, the 12,000-year-old tunnels are thought to have interworked from Scotland to places as far as Turkey.

What makes these human structures fascinating is how humans could build such underground structures with no modern technology- a reality that still baffles academics to this day.

The beauty of these stones lies not in their appearance but their making. Located in Peru, the boulders were constructed by people within the Killke culture by cutting the stones in a way which would join them neatly together. But achieving such a construction without any mortar puzzles scientists to this day and might always remain a mystery.

Over 15,000 famous geoglyphs are located in the Southern Peruvian desert. The works are believed to be those of the Nazca Culture, who are thought to have existed around 500 BCE- 500 CE.

Only visible by air, generations of scientists and historians continue to be baffled by how such etchings were possible when no form of aviation existed.

Famed around the world for the islands 887 headstones, as well as being one of the most remote places on Earth, (the closest inhabited neighbor to the Chilean territory is the Pitcairn Islands- over 1289 miles away) historians can credit the sculptures to the early Rapa Nui settlers. But how they were carved remains a mystery.
