An aluminium artefact more than 1,000 years old

Source: The  Mirror (UK), Oct 2016

A piece of aluminium that looks as if it was handmade is being hailed as 250,000-year-old proof that aliens once visited Earth.

Metallic aluminium was not really produced by mankind until around 200 years ago, so the discovery of the large chunk that could be up to 250,000 years old is being held as a sensational find.

  1. Actually, based on the layer of oxidization around the artifact, its age is placed at less than 400 years old. The relatively low percentage of aluminum (89%) combined with amounts of other metals used in smithing (copper, lead, tin, etc) lead most to believe this was one of the first known attempts to use pure aluminum. Aluminum oxide has been used in pottery, fabrics and medicine for up to seven thousand years now.
    UFO’s? 250,000 years old? What nonsense have you been reading on the interwebs?
