Hole In The Ground Revealed Historic Artifacts Dating Back 3,400 Years

As he pulled his car up to park under a tree and hide away from the sun, he could never have imagined that the earth beneath him would crumble and reveal something spectacular.

A Summers Day

It was just a normal summers day in August 2018, when one man arrived at his home and parked his car underneath an olive tree in his garden. As he positioned the car out of the sun, he felt as if the ground beneath him was unsecured and worrying what it might be, he moved from that particular spot of land, and nothing could have prepared him for what came next.

Black Hole

As he pulled away, the ground tremored and within seconds, he watched the earth where he was just standing, fall into what seemed like, a black hole. Standing there in utter shock, the man couldn’t believe what he had just witnessed. How was it possible for the earth to disintegrate like that? Was there something at the bottom of the hole?

Calling On The Experts

As he peered over the edge of the hole, he noticed something there at the very bottom, but of course, he knew it wasn’t safe for him to attempt to search the inside of the hole on his own, he would have to ask for help. As his curiosity grew about his find, it wasn’t long until he was on the phone to several archaeological experts. Would they be able to offer him the answers he was looking for? What if they didn’t take him seriously, after all, it wasn’t a regular occurrence.

What Did They Say?

Much of Greece has attracted researchers for many years, but his location was not a particular area in which they have any found any special evidence in regards to ancient Greece. Speaking with the archaeologists, he explained in detail about the bizarre moment in which the earth sank into a hole, right next to where he stood, if it was a few moments earlier, it could have led to a serious accident.

History Of Greece

The strange event occurred in the beautiful country of Greece, a place rich in culture and history. Dating all the way back to 6500 BCE when people first began building a life for themselves in Ancient Greece. A country made up of 2,000 islands, with Crete being its biggest, legends have been passed on through time and the man’s discovery was about to shed light on Greece’s past.

Legend

One of the most well-known stories from the past is that of the Minotaur, a mostly human creature with a bull’s head. Legend has it, that the God Poseidon sent a white bull to the King of Crete, Minos, to be used for sacrifice. Unable to kill the bull, Poseidon ensured his wife, Queen Pasiphae, fell in love with the animal, thus the Minotaur was born, but what did that all have to do with the man’s find?

Fled From Greece

The story of the Minotaur is a detailed one that is important to the man’s find. As King Minos fed the Minotaur on the people of Athens, it wasn’t long until someone needed to end the unjust and it was Theseus, that subsequently killed the Minotaur in a plan with Mino’s daughter, Ariadne, who he then fled with. Was this relic lying there beneath the olive grove?

Shedding Light

Ever since the time of the Minoans, there has been very little information about their history passed on, although we know much of mainland Greece is influenced by this time. A civilization that once lived a grand lifestyle and later died out, historians were indeed desperate to find something that would shed light on that particular era, and thanks to the man, that time had come.

Amazing Discovery

As the man listened to the exclaimed emotions of the archaeologists on the other end of the phone as he described his find, he understood that he had just discovered something very exciting. The person asked him repeatedly what happened as if he didn’t believe the man and his story. Shouting out into his office, there was some commotion on the other end of the line. What did they know that the man didn’t?

Burning The Past

Crete was a place that had belonged to many people in its time, however as those era’s moved on and other people took over the land, a lot of the ancient treasure was lost and destroyed. It was a common affair that all belongings from those that inhabited the land previously were burnt and left in the past. This has caused a big problem for historians when trying to piece together ancient times.
