We can travel to the most extreme places on earth in an attempt to see what the world has to offer, but there will always be lands that we haven’t traveled. We can fill our brains with the words of every history book under the sun, but we will never know what it was really like in the years gone by. Because of this, the world is a real mystery – and we will always be divided on our beliefs. There are people who believe in paranormal activity; there are others who don’t. There are those who believe in a God, and there are those who don’t. There are those who believe in aliens, and there are those who don’t. Thanks to these differences, the stories behind these mysteries can change over time and in different places, and until we get to see these mysteries in the flesh, we’ll never know the true answer. Unfortunately, there are some that we will never be able to answer because we’re just not allowed in these forbidden destinations…
Every year, scientists and explorers discover new and exciting facts about the world. Sometimes, these discoveries will adorn the back pages of newspapers and have small segments on national news stations, but then they will sink into oblivion. Yet, there are other discoveries that shake the world as we know it. They piece together historical puzzle pieces that have been confusing experts for centuries, they shed light on subjects we never thought we would understand, and they change the course of the future by allowing us an insight into the past. Some of the most impressive historical discoveries to date have done just that.
The Rosetta Stone has allowed us to decipher ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu have given us an insight into the lives of the Incas during the 15th Century, the mummified remains of the people and places within Pompeii have allowed us to understand the last minutes before the famous eruption of Mount Vesuvius, Ötzi the Iceman has been able to showcase the human race as they were 5,000 years ago, and the famous heads of Easter Island have become some of the most impressive archaeological statues in the world. While these discoveries have all made waves in history, there are some mysteries that still remain unsolved.
Yes, the world is still full of mysteries that have stumped the human race for countless years. We still have no idea how the stones at Stonehenge made their way there and why they were placed in such a peculiar pattern. We have no idea whether the Lost City of Atlantis really is lost or whether it even existed in the first place. We have no idea what the Nazca Lines really are, and were still no closer to finding out whether the famous story of King Arthur was all a myth. However, it seems as if these aren’t the only mysteries we have to contend with. Across the world, there are numerous places that humans are not allowed to visit. We don’t know what lies beyond their walls, we’re not allowed to visit certain places, and we’re not let into their secrets.
