Only one was removed and reassembled (pictured left, and below).
It now resides in the Giza Solar Boat Museum, a futuristic looking structure at the base of the Great Pyramid.
The Oxford University researchers who authored the study say that those rings could act as “secret clocks” to allow archaeologists to pinpoint exact dates of major events that occurred in ancient history, such as the building of the Great Pyramid of Giza, the collapse of Mayan civilization and the arrival of the Vikings in North America.
The dramatic jumps in carbon-14 produced by strong solar storms would be present not just in tree rings but in the surviving tissue of any plant growing at the time.
While archaeologists have relied on cutting-edge technology such as radiocarbon dating to estimate the age of historical relics, a new study by a pair of Oxford University researchers says that the key to pinpointing the exact dates of ancient artifacts and historical events could be found in tree rings bearing the marks of intense solar storms. D., a strange “red crucifix” appeared in the western skies over Great Britain, according to records in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle.
Scientists theorize the unusual celestial display could have resulted from a violent solar storm that erupted on the Sun and unleashed a major burst of high-energy radiation that blasted the Earth’s upper atmosphere.
We know from aerial photography that there are a huge number of sites where pyramids once stood but the search for the people who built them appears to have drawn little ideas on their numbers, origins etc.
But due to climate change, it is now isolated in the desert and difficult, if not dangerous, to visit.“Variations in atmospheric radiocarbon concentration are largely the result of carbon dioxide emissions from activity from volcanoes and the ocean, but they are also influenced by changes in solar activity,” explains Oxford University archaeologist Michael Dee, lead author of the study. Such markers can be easily identified in known-age tree-rings and are fixed in time.” According to the researchers, archaeologists have been forced to rely on relatively sparse evidence to date the history of Western civilization before 763 B. In addition to being imprecise, dating archaeological finds by comparing the ratio between two isotopes of the element carbon—slowly decaying carbon-14 and stable carbon-12—in organic materials is expensive. Another potential obstacle is that it’s uncertain just how often intense bursts of solar radiation have struck the Earth.Dee and co-author Benjamin Pope believe that by mining tree-ring data, scientists will be able to detect similar spikes to those of 775 A. Still, Dee is optimistic about the applicability of the research team’s findings.One of the amazing things about the colonization of America is how it reflected the Renaissance.During that incredible cultural revolution, countless expressions of humanity blossomed in the fields of science, poetry, music, art, theater, literature, philosophy, and politics – not to mention .(5) Whether for religious purposes or scientific, for at least 7000 years, mankind has been studying and measuring the placement and movement of the celestial bodies.
