Sensation: A 20-million-year-old aluminum axe has been found

In Romania, the ancient axe of a human was unearthed.

What’s the catch?

Near the Romanian town of Aiud, fragments of mastodon bones were also discovered.

Mastodons lived 20 million years ago.


The axe, which is 20 million years old, is made of an aluminum alloy (90%), a metal that humans only learned to extract in the 19th century.

If you think that a modern artifact got mixed up with mastodon bones, think again.

The Aiud axe has an oxide film over a millimeter thick, indicating the artifact’s considerable age.
