Wedge of Aiud

In 1974, a wedge-shaped item was discovered on the banks of Mures River at least two kilometres on the eastern part of Aiud of Romania. The item was said to be excavated 35 feet below the sand and close by the bones of two mastodons. A mastodon is the huge tusked warm blooded creature that was already extinct. Physically, the ancient thing seemed to resemble the upper part of the sledge. The object was professedly taken straight to Archaeological Institute of Cluj-Napoca for analysis, the experts was surprised to find out that it is made of a combination of aluminium encased in a dainty layer of oxide. The compound of the wedge is made out of 12 distinct components. This ancient rarity is viewed as interesting on the grounds that aluminium was not yet discovered until 1808 and not created in large amount until 1885. Aluminium needs a heat of 1,000 degrees in order to create. The way that the artefact was discovered in the exact layer as the mastodon bones would make it no less than 11,000 years of age.

Some people believe that the aluminium wedge is a proof of the visit of a life from another planet.  Engineers who have examined the object said that it has a resemblance to a landing base of some sort but it is not like a part of a spaceship.  Some of the scientist believed that the thing was manufactured here on Earth but the specific purpose of the item was not yet identified.  Because of the limited amount of information surrounding the artefact, the origin of the antiquity is still not verified.  The item has been on display until 1995.  Today, the location of the item remains undisclosed to the public.  But the picture of the aluminium wedge do exists.

Some of the facts surrounding the Wedge of Aiud

In 1974, while the workers are digging a channel across the Mures River, they accidentally stumbled upon a bone of two mastodons.  They were additionally baffled on the presence of a peculiar object in a form of a wedge.  Researchers who performed an analysis on the object claimed that it is not a natural rock formation because of the symmetrical shape and other details.  Almost 89% of aluminium makes up the primary component of the wedge which is astounding.  Considering the age of the aluminium which is around 11,000 years of age as stated by some experts, the production of aluminium is not yet possible that time.  Furthermore, the amount of aluminium present on the earth is only limited and can only be produced at a massive level of heat.  Two separate laboratories conducted the analysis and they were able to produce the same perplexing result.
