Mysteriou Romania (XVII) UFO Wreckage?

UFO Wreckage? Ancient Metal Object Found in Romania Has Unexplained Origins

Ancient Metal Object Found in Romania Has Unexplained Origins

A worked piece of aluminum which is believed to have been made 250,000 years ago is making world history news headlines. The composition and possible purpose of the object is baffling scientists and exciting UFO enthusiasts.
The artifact, also known as the object of Aiud, was discovered in Romania in 1973, but is said to have been hidden from public knowledge until recently. It was found with two other artifacts by builders working on the shores of the Mures River near the town of Aiud in central Romania.
According to the Daily Mail , the three objects were discovered 10 meters (33 feet) underground. When archaeologists arrived at the site they found that two of the pieces were large bones from a large extinct mammal that died sometime between 10,000-80,000 years ago. The third of the artifacts was a strange discovery – a piece of hand-made or manufactured metal which measures 20 cm (7.8 inches) long, 12.5 cm (4.9 inches) wide, and 7 cm (2.8 inches) thick. At that time, it was suggested that the metal object was a lightweight axe head.
Following its discovery, lab tests were conducted on the metal object in Lausanne, Switzerland. The results of those tests showed that the artifact is made of 12 metals and is 90 percent aluminum. The object also has concavities, which some sources say make it appear as if it was a part of a mechanical system.
Romanian officials have estimated its age to be about 250,000 years old, however, other experts who tested the artifact say it could be between 400 and 80,000 years old instead. But, that age range still raises eyebrows.

As Tech Times reports, humans started producing metallic aluminum only about 200 years ago. Yet, while recounting the history of aluminum, AZO Materials writes:
“Aluminium bearing compounds have been used by man from the earliest times, pottery was made from clays rich in hydrated silicate of aluminium. Ancient Middle Eastern civilisations used aluminium salts for the preparation of dyes and medicines: they are used to this day in indigestion tablets and toothpaste. At one point in history, aluminium was such a valuable commodity that rulers and the wealthy preferred impressing their guests with plates and cutlery made from aluminium rather than gold.”
Despite its long history on earth, the general belief is that metal aluminum was not discovered until the 1800s. The main reason for this is said to be because aluminum “never occurs naturally in metallic form. Aluminium is found in most rocks, clay, soil and vegetation combined with oxygen and other elements.” [via AZO Materials]

What is the real origin of this artifact? The question has yet to be fully answered. As the Inquisitr points out “after it went on display recently at the History Museum of Cluj-Napoca, museum officials placed a sign that said, “origin still unknown.”” For now, the object of Aiud is another example of an unexplained ancient mystery.

Book Review (LIX) Panama by C.S. Boyack

Ethan and Coop are sent to the construction zone along the Panama Canal. They have some experience with strange phenomenon, but nothing prepared them for this.

They are faced with civil war, Carlist pretenders to the thrones of France and Spain, an invading Spanish army, and another from Hell itself. They'll be lucky to survive, let alone take care of anything while they're down there.

This story is based upon the construction of the canal, Panamanian independence, international cooperation, and a few celebrity cameos. Even the magic takes on an international flavor.

Ghosts and Voodoo are one thing, but they have no idea what waits along the isthmus.

 My Review

Ethan Stafford - former Rough Rider now freighting out to the mines- can see and talk with ghosts. This information was enough to get my attention and  urge me to read on.

The story started with Ethan’s card game interrupted by the arrival of strangers. This will change the life course for him in an amazing way.

"Panama" demands your attention from the first paragraph and holds it through the many unexpected plot twists and turns.

 Quirky characters - Coop, Jinx, Bento - with their well developed personalities and the feisty, sometimes cantankerous, dialogue make this book an intriguing read.

One of the main reasons I loved the book so much was the author’s attention to detail, describing vividly all the locations the story takes place in. I felt the places and people come to life in front of my eyes , making me feel part of the story.

Political conspiracy during the construction of the Panama canal,  legends, ghosts, voodoo, wise humor, action make Panama a highly entertaining book. I laughed out loud reading that  “the French can't even take care of themselves. You can't get two Frenchmen to agree on anything."

                That’s all I reveal from the book. I won’t spoil the pleasure of reading it with more details.

All in all, a cracking read. I know it's a cliché to say it but I honestly couldn't put it down.  S.C.Boyack’s book, Panama, had me gripped. What are you waiting for? Get the book and be captivated!

Strong as Death, Born From Death book 1
Ilona discovers what it means to have a mother who is a modern woman and a father who is a 19th-century gentleman ghost.

After being hit by a car and taken to the hospital, Ilona starts to realize she’s different from other people, and that her mother has hidden the truth from her. She sneaks out of the hospital in order to discover the truth.
A mysterious boy named Archer guides her through Brooklyn and introduces her to Hendrick, the man who claims to be her father—though he died in 1890.
Ilona must discover not only what she must do to rid the city of Soll, a sadistic and powerful spirit, but also what it means to be half ghost. She proves what her mother told her—love is stronger than death.
Sneak Peek at Awaken from Death:
The blond boy didn’t walk up to a urinal or into one of the stalls, or even up to the mirror. He stood in the middle of the room.
Invisible, Lettie watched curiously.
Something moved backward away from him. Out of him.
She recognized Archer’s shiny black hair and strong frame even before she could see his face.
She gasped. But ghosts can’t inhabit people.
The blond boy shook his head and looked around. “Fuck.”
“I’m sorry,” Archer murmured so the boy wouldn’t hear.
Lettie stared at both of them.
The blond boy turned, leaned his hands on the counter, and looked at himself in the mirror…not the way people usually looked at themselves. It was more like he was trying to see something more than was in the reflection.
Archer watched him, as if waiting for him to see something.
Then Lettie understood. Archer hadn’t merely inhabited the boy—he’d possessed him. But there were only a couple ways that’d be possible—if he were half ghost, or if he…
A memory struck Lettie like a horse galloping across a battlefield. An ancient memory. Lettie had been around since the beginning of time on Earth, but most of those thousands of years she let slink around the crevices of her mind. It was mostly just walking the bridge with the newly deceased. There were a few memories, though, that burned into her every time she let herself pull them forward. And burned was precisely the right word.
She knew—or rather, remembered—why Archer would never leave Ilona.

Book Review (LVIII) Witch Wars (Underlayes, #1)

Underlayes is another dimension where all sorts of nocturnal creatures reside; witches, vampires, fae, shifters, werewolves…… The dimension was created by all of these creatures working side by side to escape the scrutiny and danger to their very existence that stemmed from the human world. Humans tend to fear things they do not understand and tend to try and eliminate anything that they fear. Even though these nocturnal beings were actually humanoid themselves as well, just different, more enhanced, than their day bearing brethren...
Amongst those beings lies a very powerful witch, Tialanna, who is to become the queen of all Underlayes witches.
Thinking the worst part of her life was the fact that she was betrothed to a complete stranger while in love with someone else. She is in for a rude awakening when she discovers the truth of who, and what, she truly is.
Tialanna is about to learn the truth behind several lies, because not only does her life depend on it, but so does the fate of the family she never even knew she had. But hey, life would probably just be boring if she didn't have to deal with elemental witches, vampires, demons, sorcerers, bindings, spells and whatnot, right?
***This book is intended for mature audiences only as there will be both graphic violence and graphic sex.***
 My Review

Prepare to be swept away by a perfect adventure fantasy for anyone with a big imagination. Witch Wars is full of adventure, remarkable characters, dangerous quests, and of course love.
One thing I look for in books is original, unpredictable storytelling because I like a book that pulls me in from the first page and doesn't let me go.Witch Wars is a beautifully written book with perfectly crafted sentences that flow without conscious thought. From the very first chapter I was swept into Tialanna 's story. Tialanna, a powerful witch destined to become the queen of all Underlayes witches. To me, she felt like a real person with both strengths and weaknesses. There were times when I admired her guts and determination, as well as times when she made mistakes which added to her vulnerability and ultimately gave her real dimension.  The writing is beautiful, T.A. Moorman definitely has a talent for crafting words to draw the reader into the mysterious world she creates. Her characters have personalities and flaws, and I loved watching Tialana character grow.

As I keep my reviews SPOILER FREE  that’s all I reveal. Read it, you will not be disappointed.
