In 1974, in Romania, two kilometers east of Aiud, a group of workers, on the banks of the river Mures, discovered three buried objects in the sand, in a trench about 10 meters(32 feet) in depth . Two of the objects, proved themselves to be Mastodon bones, some millions of years old from, between the Miocene and the Pleistocene periods.
The third object, a block of metal similar in some respects to the head of a hammer, was sent off, for a study, to the archeological institute of Cluj-Napoca.
The examination of this object showed that it was, 20.2 cm long, 12.5 cm wide and 7 cm, high, (8x5x3 inches approx) and ignited a debate within the scientific community.
Florin Gheorghita, for one, had the opportunity to examine the report, and the analysis performed under the direction of Dr.Niederkorn of the institute for the study of metals and of non-metallic minerals (ICPMMN), located in Magurele, Romania, emphasized that it is composed of a alloy of extremely complex metal.
Gheorghita affirms that the alloy is composed of 12 different elements, of which he has succeeded to establish also the volumetric percentage of the aluminum (89%). He identified the presence of Copper (6,2%), silicon (2,84%),zinc (1,81%), lead (0,41%), pond (0,33%), zirconium(0,2%), cadmium (0,11%), nickel (0,0024%), cobalt (0,0023%), bismuth (0,0003%), silver (0,0002%), and gallium (in trace amounts).
The fact that this weird metal object is uncovered together with very ancient, bone (mastodon) does cause one to wonder and raises many issues.
1. The aluminium wedge of Aiud (also called the object of Aiud) is a mysterious artifact of uncertain origin in the shape of a wedge, which was found at an archeological site near the Roman town of Aiud, allegedly near by a mammoth skeleton.
It is composed of 89% aluminium covered by a thick oxide layer. The thickness of this oxide layer is said to be confirmation that the object is anachronistic, at least three-hundred or four-hundred years old.
The aluminium wedge of Aiud is often cited as "proof" that aliens visited earth at earlier times, because aluminium was difficult to produce in quantity before 1825. Most scientists, however, believe that this object is a fake.
2. The Aluminium wedge of Aiud (also called object of Aiud) is a mysterious body in form of a wedge, which was found at digging works near the Roman town Aiud. It consists of 89% of aluminium, which is covered by a thick oxide layer.
The thickness of this layer is said to be so strong as it would lay over a million years in the ground. The Aluminium wedge of Aiud is often citated as "proof" that aliens visited earth at earlier times, because there were no possibilities to produce Aluminium before 1825.
Most scientists however, believe that this object, which existence is not clear, is a fake.
Aluminum, just to begin, it is not found free in nature, but combined with other minerals and only in the last 100 years or so has the technology been thought to exist to separate it out.
Additionally, this strange "foot" is covered with an oxide layer, of little more of a millimeter, which lends credence to its antiquity. The Romanian scientists began to form some hypotheses.
There was one that seems more interesting than others. An aeronautical engineer, in fact, advised that it was similar to the foot of a landing of device of sort of a flying vehicle, with reduced dimensions such as the lunar module or the Viking probe.
In confirmation or support of this theory beyond the shape of the object, are the two oval holes, and the scratches in the interior in the rear part and the angles, like too the composition of the material, as well as its composition of light aluminum.
