Referred to as the GOSFORD GLYPHS, the intricate set of symbols is believed to have been carved some 5,000 years ago by ancient Egyptians who visited Australia.
Considered a hoax by many, and ultimate evidence of ancient Egyptian trans-oceanic voyages by others, the curious set of symbols has produced mixed views from researchers around the globe.
One of the most controversial subjects in modern history is questioning whether advanced ancient civilizations, like the ancient Egyptian civilizations, managed to travel across the globe.
According to numerous pieces of evidence, the ancient Egyptian civilization was extremely well-developed, which allowed them to construct powerful trans-oceanic ships, which according to numerous authors, may have taken them not only to the American continent but Australia as well.
Remember that there was an article written by the Arizona Gazette that sensationally claimed how the Smithsonian Institute covered up the discovery of an ancient Egyptian colony in the Grand Canyon? Well, thats not the only surprised discovery it seems.
There is also evidence that ancient Egyptian mummies contain traces of tobacco and cocaine in their DNA.
This is controversial because if we look at history, these plants were exclusive to the American continent, and not to other parts of the world.
Anyway, what is considered perhaps as the most controversial piece of evidence that supports the idea the ancient Egyptians made their way to different continents around the globe, are the so-called Gosford Glyphs, located in Australia.
First sighted in Australia in the 1900s, it is said that the enigmatic set of symbols carved on a massive rock has been present in local folklore more than a century.
And while many scholars are convinced these supposed hieroglyphs are nothing more than a modern-day forgery, an archaeological joke, there are those who not only believe the hieroglyphs are real, but there are those who even managed to translate the message, that is said to have been left behind by ancient Egyptian explorers more than 5,000 years ago.
But modern Egyptologists note how there are many discrepancies when we look at the Gosford Glyphs.
In fact, Australian Egyptologist, Professor Naguib Kanawati firmly believes the intricate set of hieroglyphs they are not authentic, saying how ancient hieroglyphs within the same panels were of widely different periods in history and some of them were even carved backward.
Furthermore, The National Parks and Wildlife Service maintains the engravings are not authentic and a professor from Macquarie Universitys Ancient History Department, Boyo Ockinga shares the same views.
