Top 5 Artifacts That Prove Past Advanced Civilizations Existed

A modern iron hammer embedded in a 400 – million-year-old rock? A mysterious gold man-made bell encased in charcoal for hundreds of years? Hundreds of small spheres with tiny grooves dating back 2.8-billion years?

Are these proof of past ancient advanced civilizations? It’s currently believed by science that modern man came into existence about 200,000 years ago. Civilizations as we know them are only about 6,000 years old and industrialization only started around 200 years ago.

However there have been many artifacts found throughout the years that do not even come close to fitting into this timeline. Once in a while, strange and out of place artifacts from the ancient past are discovered, making us wonder and question – are we really the first of our kind here on Earth?

Here are The Top 5 Artifacts that prove ancient civilizations existed.


In June 1936, husband and wife, Emma and Max Hahn went on a stroll along Red Creek in London, Texas. On their walk, they saw a loose rock with a piece of wood sticking out of it. Out of curiosity, they took it home and kept it. It would be an entire decade, in 1947, until their son cracked it open with a chisel and hammer.

Utterly stumped, they turned over the artifact to archeologists who were puzzled by the find.

What made the hammer so unique? Could it have been just an ordinary 19th century hammer a worker abandoned and was somehow encased in rock?

During their study, they found that the rock encasing the hammer dates as far back as 400-million years old, belonging to the Ordovician era. However, others have proposed it belongs to the Cretaceous era –about 150 – million years old. Regardless, it's a very old artifact.

Drilling for artesian water is not the first thing you think of when hunting for proof of advanced ancient cultures. But somehow, one mundane drilling in 1889 turned up something that might prove just that.

What makes this next artifact so strange is that it was supposedly found buried inside a piece of coal.

Coal is a special by-product formed from decaying matter. What makes it unique is that it takes anywhere between 30 to 300 million years to form. Hence, when an unusual, metallic object is found inside coal, it forces a lot of questions.


People have called it the world's oldest spark plug while skeptics have dismissed it as a geological anomaly – there is no doubt however, that the Coso Artifact is a complete mystery.

In 1961, three rock hunters were looking for geodes in California's Coso Mountains to use for their gift and gem shop. Geodes are hollow rocks with mineral crystals like amethyst inside.

Our final artifact is one that has been around the longest.

Considered to be 2.8 billion years old, miners at the Wonderstone Silver Mine in South Africa have been finding these spheres from deep rock for over three decades.

The majority of these are described to be in a "spheroid" shape with some featuring three parallel grooves perfectly running at its equator. To date, over 200 of these have been found.

Geologists J.R. McIver and Andries Bisschoff examined several pieces of these spheroid artifacts in 1979.

These "spheres" have a distinct flattened globe shape. They measure between 1- 4 inches in diameter and have a metallic texture on the outside. As for their color, some have a steel blue with a reddish shade and others have white flecks embedded on the coat.
