4,500 Year Old Egyptian Boat Found Near The Abusir Pyramids

Czech archaeologists have unearthed an ancient funerary boat near the Abusir pyramids south of Cairo, officials said Monday, in a discovery that could shed light on shipbuilding in ancient Egypt.


The unusual discovery of the more than 4,500-year-old remains of the 18-metre-long (59-foot) wooden vessel, which archaeologists believe belonged to a prominent member of society, was made at the Abusir South cemetery, an antiquities ministry statement said.

The remains were found buried near the mastaba's southern wall, indicating the extraordinary social position of the owner of the tomb.

The boat's length and pottery found with it shows that it could be from the end of the third or beginning of the fourth dynasty, the ministry said.

Giant 'alien-like' squid egg in underwater bubble found by divers in Arctic Ocean

The deep ocean is a mysterious world. Now it appears that Norwegian divers (Ronald Raasch) found a strange bag filled with liquid in the Arctic Ocean.


A huge underwater bubble was discovered by a group of scientists who were studying the state of the ocean. Swimming to the ball, divers lit it with a flashlight, which allowed a closer look at its insides.

While it almost looks like there is an alien-like figure inside the underwater bubble, it turns out that it is a rare jelly-like structure intended to protect the offspring of squid inside.

Man says he found footprints in North Carolina that aren't human or animal

Joe Scarborough in Cesar, North Carolina recently stumbled upon a series of sizable prints that left him wondering if they may have been created by Bigfoot.


Joe initially suspected that perhaps the large prints had come from a human, marveling to himself that "somebody's got a big foot."

When he looked closer at the tracks, he was struck by the sheer size of the impressions, noting that they seemed to measure thirteen or fourteen inches long, reports CoasttoCoast.

He says he will spend the night near the tracks in Cesar, NC with his cameras in the coming days to see what else he can find.
