Forbidden Archeology


In 1974, in Romania, two kilometers east of Aiud, a group of workers, on the banks of the river Mures, discovered three buried objects in the sand, in a trench about 10 meters(32 feet) in depth . Two of the objects, proved themselves to be Mastodon bones, some millions of years old from, between the Miocene and the Pleistocene periods.

The third object, a block of metal similar in some respects to the head of a hammer, was sent off, for a study, to the archeological institute of Cluj-Napoca.

The examination of this object showed that it was, 20.2 cm long, 12.5 cm wide and 7 cm, high, (8x5x3 inches approx) and ignited a debate within the scientific community.

Florin Gheorghita, for one, had the opportunity to examine the report, and the analysis performed under the direction of Dr.Niederkorn of the institute for the study of metals and of non-metallic minerals (ICPMMN), located in Magurele, Romania, emphasized that it is composed of a alloy of extremely complex metal.

Gheorghita affirms that the alloy is composed of 12 different elements, of which he has succeeded to establish also the volumetric percentage of the aluminum (89%). He identified the presence of Copper (6,2%), silicon (2,84%),zinc (1,81%), lead (0,41%), pond (0,33%), zirconium(0,2%), cadmium (0,11%), nickel (0,0024%), cobalt (0,0023%), bismuth (0,0003%), silver (0,0002%), and gallium (in trace amounts).

The fact that this weird metal object is uncovered together with very ancient, bone (mastodon) does cause one to wonder and raises many issues.

Aluminum, just to begin, it is not found free in nature, but combined with other minerals and only in the last 100 years or so has the technology been thought to exist to separate it out.

Additionally, this strange "foot" is covered with an oxide layer, of little more of a millimeter, which lends credence to its antiquity. The Romanian scientists began to form some hypotheses.

There was one that seems more interesting than others. An aeronautical engineer, in fact, advised that it was similar to the foot of a landing of device of sort of a flying vehicle, with reduced dimensions such as the lunar module or the Viking probe.

In confirmation or support of this theory beyond the shape of the object, are the two oval holes, and the scratches in the interior in the rear part and the angles, like too the composition of the material, as well as its composition of light aluminum.

Second Story: Part of a UFO in a Romania Museum?

by Boczor Iosif

In 1973, on the bank of the Mures, a river near Aiud, a 700-year-old town in Transylvania, Romania, workers discovered a small, mysterious metal object, along with bones (including the jaw) of a mastodon, in a sand pit under a 35-foot-thick layer of sand.

Later, the find was donated to the Museum of the History of Transylvania in Cluj. The editors of RUFOR, a Romanian UFO magazine, found the strange object in a storeroom of the museum in 1995.

The object weighs five pounds and its dimensions are 8.25 by 5 by 2.75 inches. There are two holes of different sizes in it. The object has two arms. The traces of tool marks can be seen on the sides of the object and on its lower part.

Chemical Analysis

A piece of this object was examined at a research center at Margurele, Romania. According to the analysis, the object contains 12 elements: 89 percent aluminum, 6.2 percent copper, 2.84 percent silicon, 1.81 percent zinc, 0.41 percent lead, 0.33 percent tin, 0.2 percent zirconium, 0.11 percent cadmium, 0.0024 percent nickel, 0.0023 percent cobalt, 0.0003 percent bismuth, and trace of galium.

Mircea Aries and Peter Lab, two Romanian journalists and researchers, affirm that the same results were obtained in a research institute in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Anomalous Aluminum

The object is covered with a thick layer of aluminum oxide. After the analysis of this layer, the specialist affirmed that the object is at least 300 to 400 years old.

This result puzzled the researchers because pure aluminum was not readily obtainable until the middle of the 19th century.

Other specialists claim that the object could be 20,000 years old because it was found in a layer with mastodon bone. Perhaps this particular specimen lived in the latter part of the Pleistocene.

Some researchers suppose that this piece of metal was part of a flying object that had fallen into the river. They presume that it had an extraterrestrial origin. Other researchers affirm that it was made on Earth and was part of a tool. The purpose of this tool is unknown.
