Archaeologists don’t have all the answers, and sometimes, the answers they do have turn out to be wrong.
Unsolved histories go beyond just a few perplexing artifacts. Scientists are still trying to solve centuries-old murder mysteries, like: Who killed the bog people—Iron Age Europeans—by stabbing, strangling, or hanging them and then tossing them in bogs? And why? What happened to the Anasazi people of the Southwest, who carved pueblos (villages) out of cliffs and suddenly abandoned them?
The biggest mysteries of history raise questions about whole continents. For example, who was the first European explorer to set foot on American soil? It definitely was not Christopher Columbus, no matter what archaeologists used to think and history used to teach.
