    Default 7,500 year old Toy car found - Sumerian

    Maybe the Flintstones were real??? Made out of stone and found in Kiziltepe district of Mardin province in eastern Turkey 2011. Also found dolls and whistles (that still worked)
    Was wondering about a chariot, but they only have 2 wheels. Could be a replica baby buggy (without the handle)......Shame it didnt come with free energy instructions!

    good find...Witchy 1 ..The Summarian war Chariots did have four wheels and were more
    bulkier than the classic Egyption,Greek , Roman or Anciant British versions...


    http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=sum...w=1662&bih=927

    Still I like the Flintstones peddle car better...
    And it is not exactly like the war chariot
    maybe like a childs version...or something else ??

    My figuring is that the Sumerians were probably ex Atlantis. Mesopotamia and Babylon grew from here. Unfortunatley the barbarian Assarians invaded and the culture was ultimately decimated. This culture grew along side the egyptians and the rest as they say is history.
    However the Assaryans did like puzzles

    The axles on the vehicle look new and not part of the original assembly in my opinion.

    Ouroboros I can see what you are saying...




    27 December 2011 / TODAY'S ZAMAN, İSTANBUL
    The world’s earliest toy car and title deed which were unearthed several months ago during excavations in the Kızıltepe district of the southeastern province of Mardin, are now on display at the Mardin Museum, the Cihan news agency reported Tuesday.

    Archaeologist Mesut Alp said that the toy car, which is made out of stone, dates back to the late Stone Age and is thought to be 7,500 years old.

    The Culture and Tourism Director of Mardin, Davut Beliktay, said that the car is like a copy of cars today, adding that in its shape, the ancient toy also resembles a tractor. Beliktay also revealed that toy dolls and whistles, also made of stone, were found at sites in the area, “we believe that the whistles and dolls are 5,000 to 6,000 years old. The whistles are still in working condition,” he said.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    What I was looking for is if they found the vehicle parts intact or in bits and replaced the
    axles which it looks like in the stone.....steve

    Hey folks,

    Obviously, they didn´t have cars back then, so this is a chariot toy indeed.

    Maybe this isn´t even a toy. It might have belonged to some sort of designer/engineer, who was testing this model of chariot using this scaled down model.

    Cheers,

    Raf.

    Zecharia Stchin and Immanuel Velikovsky pretty much explained rather succinctly how the Sumerian civilization began - and why. It is in the thousands of ancient texts written by their scribes and scholars. They leave no room to doubt what the Sumerians thought.
    The Nephilim are the progenitors of their civilization.

    With the axeles being so thin I think it is unlikely they are the original as it is most likely they would have perished. I may be wrong and if someone can prove otherwise please show me the evidence.
    My concern is that an artefact is found and reconstructed into an object we identify with today.
