Our narrator goes on at length about how carbon dating is. Catch up on season 1 of Ancient Aliens, only on HISTORY'.

We MUST have had some help from above, from entities far more intelligent and evolved than we. Otherwise, how could we have built those amazing Egyptian pyramids and erected those massive stone statues on Easter Island, or the meticulously intricate blocks that make up Puma Punku in Bolivia Are all these "archeo-enigmas" proof that our ancestors mingled with the star people, and left us clues in their art, architecture, myths and religious texts?
While many argue that there is no proof we humans needed a little help from above to make those huge jumps forward in our evolution, there are many who insist that the archeological evidence is clear The theory also posits that these aliens were from advanced civilizations, coming to visit lowly human Earthlings and impart what they knew of the vast cosmos and all possibilities therein.
Speculation includes locations both within and outside of our known universe, where the laws of physics might allow for travel between worlds. If we entertain the ancient astronaut theory, and there is compelling "circumstantial evidence" to give it serious thought, must we accept that the aliens that intervened were indeed aliens at all?

Original news stories claimed it a flying saucer, but were immediately suppressed in favor of a weather balloon story courtesy of the authorities Roswell is now the stuff of legends, as well as movies, TV shows, books by the dozen and continued debate and discussion as to exactly what happened on that fateful date in history.

Everything was deposited deliberately and pointedly, as if in offering. This was not a place where ordinary residents could tread. Like mechanical moles, the robots chewed through the soil, their camera lights aglow, and returned with hard drives full of spectacular footage: The tunnel seemed to end in a spacious cross-shaped chamber, piled high with more jewelry and several statues.
So far, 70, objects of interest have been found there. Janet Jarman Gabriel Garcia Sarabia pieces together an ancient vase from fragments found together in the tunnel. He believes the structure was torn down and rebuilt many times. He was smoking a cigarette and drinking coffee out of a foam cup. Tides of tourists swept to and fro over the grass of the Ciudadela—I heard scraps of Italian, Russian, French. The restoration operation is set up in a cluster of buildings not far from the Ciudadela.
In one room, a young man was sketching artifacts and noting where in the tunnel the objects had been found. Next door, a handful of conservators sat at a banquet-style table, bent over an array of pottery. The air smelled sharply of acetone and alcohol, a mixture used to remove contaminants from the artifacts. She was using a syringe primed with acetone to clean a particularly tiny crack.
They were buried carefully. It was corn, it turned out—1,year-old corn. Passing through a lab where wood recovered from the tunnel was being carefully treated in chemical baths, we stepped into the storeroom.
There was a statue of a coiled jaguar, poised to pounce, and a collection of flawless obsidian knives.

I descended carefully, foot over foot, the brim of my hard hat slipping over my eyes. In the tunnel it was damp and cold, like a grave. To get anywhere, you had to walk on your haunches, turning to the side when the passage narrowed.

Fifty feet in, we stopped at a small inlet carved into the wall.
