6. King Tut’s Demise
One thing’s for sure: King Tutankhamun is dead. Now the real mystery is how did he go His tomb was unearthed long ago, in 1922, and there has been much speculation as to what happened to the boy king ever since. Some say he was murdered; others think he was in a chariot accident and proceeded to lose his life due to an infection from an injury in said accident. However, we may never know the true nature of his demise, which may mean we’ll never understand why Tut’s body was in the condition it was when it was found. It also seems as though his body caught fire after being mummified and it’s believed that the flammable embalming fluids his wrappings were soaked in reacted with the oxygen in the air to somehow cause a fire. The burial itself was hastily done, and that has led researchers to wonder if his tomb was initially meant for someone else. They also think there may be other, as of yet unfound mummies buried inside the same tomb. Time will tell.
5. A Different Declaration
A copy of the Declaration of Independence with a couple of intriguing differences was found in the recent past, and two Harvard students brought it to light in April of 2017. The signatures at the bottom of the Declaration aren’t separated into different groups by state as other copies of the document are. Instead, the 56 names are all mixed together and use a common cipher from the 18th-century. The person who likely commissioned it was an outspoken supporter of strong national identity and government. It’s thought that he asked the signers of the document to do so the way it was found to emphasize the idea of the men as a united group instead of as separate, individual representatives of their state.
4. The Largest Dinosaur Footprint Ever
There is a stretch of the Daimler Peninsula in Australia which measures 15 miles (24 km) that is nicknamed “Australia’s own Jurassic Park.” It houses the most diverse array of fossilized dinosaur tracks in the world. There are footprints from 21 different species of dinosaurs which once walked in the area back when they were wetlands some 130 million years ago. Scientists uncovered a giant sauropod print on the peninsula that measured almost 5 feet and nine inches(1.7 meters). The print was announced to the world in March of 2017, and it goes down in the record books as the biggest dinosaur footprint in history. Can you imagine lying flat and being squished head-to-toe by one foot of a single creature
3. Jesus’s Tomb
While the location of what’s believed to be the tomb of Jesus of Nazareth has been known for some time, it recently underwent a significant restoration. It took many years for the Church of the Holy Sepulcher (the church in which it’s thought Jesus rests in Jerusalem’s Old City) to agree to allow experts to restore and renovate. The last such restoration of the church happened way back in 1810 and has since deteriorated immensely, so it was time for an update. A popular tourist destination and Christian pilgrimage site since the 4th-century AD, the Holy Sepulcher allowed the work to begin in 2016, and, in March 2017 it reopened to the public. The restoration cost $3 million, but it has drawn many a visitor to the historic site.
2. More Dead Sea Scrolls
We already had a whole bunch of Dead Sea Scrolls, which were found in the late 1940s and early 1950s, but more were discovered quite recently. It was February of 2017 when researchers in Israel announced the discovery of various items, including wrappings, jars, ties, and other things relating to the scrolls. They were found at Qumran in the West Bank in a cave that was previously unknown. It was initially believed that the scrolls were hidden in just 11 caves in the area, but this one proved to be the 12th, and it is the first discovery of more artifacts related to the Dead Sea Scrolls in more than 60 years.
