Did Aliens Leave Behind This 2,800-Year-Old Nokia?
Looks like E.T. forgot his phone.
Researchers (or should we say “researchers”) are claiming they have dug up what looks like a 2,800-year-old Mesopotamian clay tablet cell phone, reportedly found in the Austrian town of Fuschl am See. (Judging by the picture quality, the photos were also taken on a 2,800-year-old cell phone.)
According to the oh-so reputable mysteriousuniverse.org, not much is known about what archaeologists were looking for when they came across this piece of not-so-terrestrial history, but it probably wasn’t clay Sumerian tablets from the 13th century BCE.
How did a cuneiform tablet make its way to modern-day Austria, you ask? After all, Mesopotamia never expanded north or west of modern-day Turkey (allegedly). Well, the theory proposes that aliens created Sumerian civilization, then left the artifact behind after a failed attempt to introduce people to the great communicative powers of cellular phones.
Sadly, like Damascus steel, the technology to make functioning clay cell phones is still not known.

On a side note, we’re still understanding the technology and tools that were used to precisely laser cut and shape the mysterious ancient thousand to million year-old stones below, which (admitted by scientists, archeologists and engineers alike) is impossible for modern day technology and tools today…
However we must understand this is just an “ancient” phone. Just sayin’
