The Forgotten Ancient Civilizations Discovered In The Middle of Nowhere – The Ancient Sumerians & Mesopotamia

It’s amazing how many old sites there are on our globe that most people have never seen or heard about.

When most of us think of vanished ancient civilizations, we imagine archaeological ruins like Egypt’s Pyramids or even the Great Sphinx.

I think of Stonehenge’s circular arrangement of stones in England and Salisbury Plain. It is possible that ancient South American landmarks like Machu Picchu in Peru and the Sacsayhuaman Wall (Peru) may come to your mind. The Mesoamerican pyramids and the Aztec empires are just a few of the many other historical landmarks.

However, for those who are more familiar with the subject of Lost Ancient Civilizations, or for those who just want to learn more about it… Other, lesser-known ancient archaeological locations may spring to mind for them.

For example, the site of Gobekli Tepe in Turkey, which is 12,000 years old and the world’s oldest known Megalithic site, remains a complete mystery.

So, while some of the places I just mentioned are unfamiliar to the majority of people, there are other ancient locations that are virtually unknown to the general public, such as the ones I’ll be discussing in this video.

These facts will undoubtedly make you reflect on how little we know about our ancient history, and, more importantly, how much remains to be discovered – and within our lives.

I’ll start with a situation that you may have heard about last week in the news. In Mosul, Iraq, an intriguing discovery revealed ancient ruins that have been hidden and undiscovered for more than 3.400 years.
