Storm Revealed This Amazing Village Underneath The Ground In 1850
News| | By David Clarke
Major storms can leave a trail of wreckage in their wake, damaging both property and the environment. One need only think back to New Orleans, Haiti, or Japan for examples of major disasters that completely altered the surrounding area.
Take a journey into the past by checking out this amazing discovery of something even older than the Pyramids in Egypt but much less well known.
The village is called Skara Brae, and it’s not only older than the Pyramids in Egypt, but it’s even older than Stonehenge itself. It has such a rich history and is so well-preserved that some have even nicknamed it the “Scottish Pompeii.”
Historians believe that at one point in history there were roughly 50-100 people living in the village, and that they likely lived there for just over half a century. Strangely enough, each house was connected to each other by stone doors and tunnels.
Professionals are still unclear as to what some of the items discovered in the village actually are, with an example being these strange stone balls. No one really knows what the purpose of these items was.
Like the villagers, this island likely won’t be around for long as coastal erosion and storms continue to deteriorate the village. We’d recommend checking it out while you still can!
