Out of place artifacts are artifacts of historical, archaeological, or paleontological interest found in an unusual context, that challenges conventional historical chronology by being “too advanced” for the level of civilization that existed at the time, or showing “human presence” before humans were known to exist. Imagine being on the archaeological dig of a lifetime, searching for dinosaur bones or ancient Egyptian treasures, when you finally find something embedded in centuries-old rock or sealed in a tomb that you know hasn’t been opened in thousands of years. But what you find is not a bone or a gem… it’s a Game Boy? How in the world did that get there?
This week we explore the wild world of Out of Place Artifacts and some of the most perplexing artifacts known to history.
