There are some archaeological finds that can be scary and disturbing. However, these discoveries may give us a better understanding of past history. Here are some of creepy discoveries ever uncovered in the world.

Fossilized Dinosaur Brains
Paleontologists have identified the first known fossilized brain tissue from a dinosaur. The fossil was found in Sussex, England in 2004. With using advanced scanning technology, scientists managed to find out what the brains of the oldest inhabitants on the planet looked like. The specimen is most likely from a species similar to Iguanodon, a large herbivorous dinosaur that lived about 133 million years ago. This is a unique discovery because soft tissue fossils, especially brain tissue are very rare.

The Black Sarcophagus
In 2018, a mysterious 2,000-year-old black sarcophagus was found at a construction site in Alexandria, Egypt. Its almost 2 meters high and 3 meters long, and is the largest of its kind ever found intact in the ancient Egyptian city. Inside the sarcophagus, there were only the bodies of three Egyptian who believed is soldiers and a liquid sewage. One of the skulls showed signs of fracture caused by a sharp instrument. The reasons why they buried in a sarcophagus still remains unknown.

Great, another stupid video with stolen material narrated by an idiot who speaks such poor English that it's irritating.

WTF? Is that you?
