Archaeology | No evidence of aliens helping ancient cultures | Ancient World | Scoop.it
Did aliens visit Earth in ancient times? It’s possible. The late Carl Sagan once argued that there was a “statistical likelihood that Earth was visited by an advanced extraterrestrial civilization at least once during historical times.”
Rocio Rodriguez's insight:

Three out of four americans tend to believe that aliens have visited Earth in the past. This is because they can't imagine how our so called ancestors managed to put together a pyramid.

Andreina Ruiz's curator insight, February 14, 2014 12:26 AM

These sacred wells of the Mayans, known as Cenotes are very beautiful. They are considered sacred places because in these caves and waters are made millenar rituals. These caves are also sacred to archaeologists. I entered one in Yucatan and I even got inside the water. The water was very cold and there were fishes as well. I was told that people that go inside to get wet are considered to live longer. It was a great experience to be part of because it has been crossed 14,000 years of history of the Maya.

Rocio Rodriguez's insight:

Being a scribe was a very prestigious job in Mesopotamia. To become a scribe, a wealthy boy (no girls and no poor people) had to go to school for 12 years to learn how to write using cuneiform. Scribes spent their days recording business documents onto clay tablets and keeping records. These people lived a little further away from the ziggurat in one story mud brick houses.
