I'm not really buying into the alien theory but this is interesting nonetheless. I surmise it is entirely possible that there may have been more than one very advanced human race on this planet and they may have become almost extinct long ago by some calamity. Very few would have survived and not been able to pass on the technological knowledge, therefore the human race started over. There are quite a few of these artifacts that have turned up over the years. There is this gizmo, model aircraft in Egypt and the Antikythera mechanism just to name a few. Who knows, perhaps Plato was a long distant relative of a survivor that passed down the stories from generation to generation which is why he wrote about the city of Atlantis.

The item was found near "mastodon" bones; NOT "dinosaur" bones. Huge difference.
Dinosaurs went extinct 65 million years ago, Mastodon went extinct only about 10,000 years ago.
Also, according to the story the artifact and the bones were apparently found in a sandy river bed near each other. That does not mean they were contemporary with each other; things from various ages get churned up and mixed around in river bottoms all the time.
Interesting artifact though. The bones are just dramatization introduced by the "History" Channel show producers; lots of rather bogus history on the History Channel.

Archaeologists refer to such artifacts as OOPs artifacts or out of place, lots of them have turned up over the years and most are discounted by mainstream archaeologists, most are explained like this , your walking and site seeing and drop a quarter at a historic site and an archaeologist finds it, doesn’t mean it was an actual part of the historical record, but’s such artifacts are usually shallow and not buried at the same depth as the historical ones, but there have been some such as the Egyptian statues that have been found at mound builder sites not close to the surface but deep in the mound where the artifacts are 2/3000 years old, or the old coins from Rome or Greece found at old Indian sites at the same depth as the other artifacts

Most archaeologists discredit such because it doesn’t fit their narrative

They made it the whole way through space from a distant planet only to wreck upon landing? The crew of the mother ship was probably shaking their heads when they saw the fireball.

Marco polo describes what sounded like dinosaurs in his book.

To me it looks like a backhoe tooth. and that could very likely even explain it's depth. The fact that it is aluminum is the odd part.

It's really too bad that with so much interesting true history, TV producers think it necessary to produce all this BS that they try to pass-off as history; kind of like Fake News, I guess there is a huge market for this stuff.

I saw a documentary once, JUST once that talked of homo sapien bones found right along with dinosaur bones. I watched it and was very intrigued, however this was before the internet, so couldn't look it up.

What I find odd is that I have never seen or heard of it other than that one time. Sure makes a fella wonder

What about the obviously hominid track alongside dinosaur tracks in an exposed river bed. In stone?

Don’t hold out for a repeat. Mike Traps2 when the anthropological peer review was done with the bone head that bobbled that one, he probably wound up making donuts at dunken.

I think there was a small population of dinosaurs, that lived concurrent with humans, that gave rise to the dragon mythology that appears in almost all cultures.

I think there were several species of non homosapien, hominid species, that lived concurrent with humans too, that gave rise to the mythology of beings like elves, brownies, gnomes, fairies, goblins and similar beings in almost all cultures as well.

Great book on the history of human development. The title is Sapiens, by Yuval Noah Harari. He is Israeli. He has a You Tube as well. Very interesting book.

I had a class in college a long time ago called "Dinosaurs". Some things I learned:

  • You can tell how old something is by how many layers of sediment are on top of them - but most of the time you can't tell one layer from the next.
  • So, you can tell how old something is by how deep it is - except that usually doesn't work so, when it gives an answer an archeologist doesn't like they use a "correction factor" for that site. Each site gets it's own correction factor to make the answers come out the same as every other site. Then everything at that depth is however old they want it to be.
  • You can tell how old something is by testing how much radioactive carbon is left in the thing - because radioactive materials decay at a known rate. But that requires us to know how much radioactive carbon was in the atmosphere tens of thousands of years ago before we knew what radioactive carbon was.
  • We assume that the amount of radioactive carbon has always been the same. But we have been testing it for almost 100 years now and it's decreasing.
  • We can use other radioactive elements to do the same age test. Iridium is one that's used a lot. Iridium, (and several others) is water soluble and moves around with ground water.
  • Archeologist PhD's don't seem to think any of this is B.S.

Not really because it’s a well accepted fact that primitive man hunted both mammoth and mastodon as there are numerous artifacts showing they did just that

I think a better analogy would be finding a bullet in a mastodons bones

Here were lead to believe all along that cave persons hunted and killed mammoths and mastodons with knives and spears but no, there were extra terrestrials flying aircraft to herd and kill, much like our plains native americans hunting buffalo. Wonder if they were hired by the cavemen or if they sold the meat and hide to them. I guess the pilot zigged when he should have zagged.

Apparently the extra-terrestrials didn't have hunting ethics. No wonder the dinosaurs went extinct.
Wow, I realized I just created a new hypothesis I wonder how long it will take the antis to glom on to this theory; soo to be "fact"?
