10 Mysterious Things Found Frozen in Ice
If we look closely at the nature around us, we’ll surely find a lot of windows into the past. It only takes some digging and an explorative spirit to come across some secrets from the people who dwelled on this land before us - or perhaps something you lost last week. But some of the most interesting things of all time are preserved in ice, an element used to make things last longer - just have a look at your fridge and see how long can things stay good if you put them in the freezer. Although there’s a bit of an issue with global warming and ice melting in the poles, I am sure there are a lot of interesting things hidden in that ice, waiting to be discovered. Today, I’ll be showing you “10 mysterious things that were found frozen in ice” - You’ll learn that ice is indeed good at preserving things and you won’t believe what the number one finding is! You’ll be as shocked as the people who first saw it.
The Viking Sword on the Mountain
It only makes sense to start the list with something that was found up in the mountains of a very cold country. In fact, let me give you a heads up - we’ll be having quite a few findings in the northernmost countries of the world, so expect to hear about them a few times during this video. The first one is in Norway, where a group of reindeer hunters found a well-preserved sword at high altitude. It is the sword of a viking and it’s believed to be more than 1,000 years old. Its finding led experts to believe that there might be other artifacts out there waiting to be discovered. But after some exploration, they came to learn that the viking sword was an isolated find. The quality of the iron and the extreme cold is what kept this artifact intact, although there were probably some organic materials with it that disappeared over the years. After some research, people learned that the viking who owned this sword was probably lost and died in the mountain where it was found.
We’re in the midst of the 21st century and it seems that we’ve finally come to a point where every piece of land around the world has been discovered. Now our exploration is taking us on journeys underwater and even out of our planet to see what else can be colonized. However, with so much ice in the world, it only makes sense that some chunks of land haven’t been discovered by modern day explorers and are well preserved in cold temperatures. This is the case of some islands around Greenland that had been hidden from society until recently. From 1999 all the way to 2014, a group of islands started to emerge in the northwestern part of Greenland. Scientific research credits global warming for these discoveries as the apparition of the islands happened due to glaciers retreating quickly and giving way to undiscovered masses of land. This event has forced maps to be redrawn, so the new pieces of land that were unknown to us can now be included. If the ice keeps retreating in the way it did over the last twenty years, we might witness more land discoveries soon. Should we be excited or worried?
The Ancient Forest
We already talked about frozen plants that came back to life, but that doesn’t compare to what happened in Alaska, when a very old forest came back to life! The story of this frozen forest starts about 1,000 years ago when the Mendenhall Glacier started to advance and covered a forest in gravel. This gravel acted as a protection to the forest to the point that the glacier was able to advance right on top of it. Flashforward to the modern days, the glacier is now receding and uncovering trees, which remained intact throughout the whole process. Archaeologists came to study the age of the trees and they found out that most of them date from 1,000 to 2,350 years old - imagine staying alive for that long! If only those trees could talk, I’m sure they’d have a lot of crazy stories to tell us.
