The first human footprints in North America, Saudi Arabian rock art older than the Pyramids, and the real-life inspiration for the Biblical Sodom.
23,000-Year-Old Footprints Prove That Humans Were In North America Far Earlier Than We Thought
For decades, experts have claimed that humans were only able to arrive in North America after the end of the Ice Age, some 13,000 years ago. Though archaeologists in Mexico and elsewhere have unearthed what are believed to be human tools dating back 26,000 years, some researchers believe that these rocks may not be tools at all.
However, 23,000-year-old footprints uncovered in the New Mexico desert now provide irrefutable evidence of the first humans in North America. Scientists say that these historic prints provide rare “snapshots in time” that depict the lives of the very first people to ever set foot on the continent.

8,000-Year-Old Camel Carvings In Saudi Arabia Found To Be Three Millennia Older Than The Pyramids
When researchers first uncovered the enormous stone camel carvings at Al Jawf, Saudi Arabia in 2018, they estimated that they were about 2,000 years old. Now, they’ve just discovered that they were off by about 6,000 years.
If researchers’ dating estimates are correct, these 8,000-year-old behemoths would be the oldest surviving three-dimensional animal reliefs of this size in the entire world.

Archaeologists Just Uncovered How The City That Inspired The Biblical Sodom Was Destroyed
In 1650 B.C., the citizens of Tall el-Hammam in present-day Jordan witnessed a meteor light up the skies like nothing they’d ever seen before. The impact was 1,000 times stronger than the atomic bomb that destroyed Hiroshima and caused temperatures of 3,600 degrees Fahrenheit. The city was flattened instantly and no one survived.
Now, a new study has posited that this cataclysmic event may have inspired the Biblical tale of Sodom and its fiery destruction.
