Banished does not equal buried a foot and a half down. Unless it was done by stone-age TEPCO employees, lol.

Thats why it was face down.

It was the only way to keep death in by facing it towards the center of the earth.

So long as death looked inwards to the center those on the surface wer safe. Now its been upended and dug up..no longer banished by looking inward.

Now it looks out and about..and we will all be dead within five to six years..starting from now.

Quasi-Buddhistic. The central letter looks like Siddham letter used for esoteric Buddhist meditation. Look up "seed syllable" and "Siddham alphabet." There are lotus-like symbols. The wheel at the bottom looks like a "nyoirin" wheel, another Buddhist symbol, but it has the wrong number of spokes.

But There is an olive branch which is a western greco-roman-Judeo-Christian symbol and not Buddhist.

My guess: some frustrated art school reject tossed his/her rejected piece of the window of a moving car ten years ago and dirt collected over it. Isn't there a famous Art school in Rhode Island? (RISDI?)

Use it to start your own religion, OP. Worked well for the founder of Mormonism when he found som meaningless metal plates in the ground...

Keep that thing and do some research, it could be worth a fortune.

Remember they think Norsemen came to that area over a thousand years ago, they supposedly built that stone tower in Touro Park in Newport.

That is very interesting, I think he stumbled on quite a find.

 Quoting: jlyn 13418564


That's not impossible. If that is a piece of an old Norse settlement that would help solve some great mysteries about that region back then. The Smithsonian would be very interested along with any archeology departments at universities. Hopefully the right person will stumble upon this thread with more information.

Re: Strange metal plate found in back yard, Jamestown Rhode Island
pretty weird whatever it is supposed to be

the image in the bottom left corner sort of looks like a man leaning forward doing something like putting out a fire or maybe those are flames but snakes????

the one thing I do see I the leafy fern-like leaf, in the centre area. Each of the other carvings seem to have the individual leaf incorporated into the carving.
As for the image in the centre it does look hieroglyphic

Could be a capstone, though why it was upside down I have no idea. I'd dig deep under the location that it was found. Remember, not all treasure can be found with a metal detector! Dig deeper!

Youre telling me.

This thing was created about 3500 BC or thereabouts.

I saw a picture of it once in a history book.

It was a mythical book dealing with myths and legends and stuff.

When I saw that I recognised it because I clearly remember thinking ten years ago when I read this book what would happen if anyone actully disturbed it...and now they have.

We are so doomed.

He found it while metal detecting and has no idea what it is. I thought other people on glp would probably share my interest in it and possibly a few of you would know more about it.


It's very interesting. The eyes all over it, strange mountains at the bottom, an elephant on the left, and a horse? on the right. Those things at the top, I have no idea what they are but my first thought is demon faces. I'm extremely interested in finding out what this is. There's been conflicting answers to the symbol in the middle as well.
 Quoting: grimloche


This will probably disappoint the born-againers who
WANT this to be something that points to the
Christian "end-times." It is perhaps this:
Someone for what ever reason has tried to copy
--for purposes of MAKING A RECORD of having seen
certian Egyptian artifacts of King Tutankaman's
Tomb from the 1920's. The TOP left imprint is
probably a very BAD copy--but a recording none the
less--of this aritifact (and it is ALSO MY AVATAR,
OP! TAKE A LOOK AT THE 3 "LEGS" WHICH SUPPORT
THE SCARAB BEETLE--that's what was the "tip-off!":

Proof

The reason I believe it is THIS ARTIFACT is that
the 3 supporting "legs" of the scarab beetle
"Khepri" matches in both images. The second match
is that "orb" that is at the top of the left
top figure. That "orb" is the "Sol Star" or the
Home star (and thereby the planet solar-sytem)
of the Elohim--THE CREATORS of Genesis (who
were possibly alien entities!)
The two "orbs" with the double arks beneath
or over them can be seen in the "Sacred Orb"
of "Khepri" that appears above the heads of
the beings discussing "As Above--So Below"
in THIS artifact:

tutBLOWUP2
(You will notice that the "Sacred Orb" blow-up
is actually the SAME orb with double arks that
sits on top of the Scarab Beetle in the first
set of images.
It is obvious to me that this is an effort to
bring FORWARD to the Western world the "secret"
information contained in the Egyptian treasure
of "Boy King Tutankhamun." It is a secret that
is STILL KEPT CLOSELY GUARDED BY THE ARAB
COUNTRIES from their Western enemies....Maybe
it came over on the Mayflower since this is
Jamestown, right?
SO...NOW THAT YOU KNOW WHAT THE POOR-QUALITY
IMAGE COPIES OF KHEPRA IS...the question now is
WHAT IS IT DOING IN jAMESTOWN--and what is the
ADDED images to the "Sacred Artifact" at the
bottom of the piece might mean. The mountains
at the bottome may be Tibet's Himmylain mountains
--but the LINK TO EGYPT is lost on me!

Now...What is REALLY THE FREAKY PART OF THIS
DISCOVERY isn't so much that there is a link
between the Eastern shore of the United States
and the far distant Egyptian Empire at the
time this metal plate was copied (has the
artifact/plate been dated yet?)--is that
it PROVES THAT KING TUT'S TOMB WAS NOT...
I REPEAT...NOT DISCOVERED IN THE 1920S'
BY ARCHEOLOGIST CARTER--BUT WAS IN FACT
A PHOTO-OP BY THE ARAB COUNTRIES FOR
WHAT EVER PURPOSE THEY NEEDED IT TO BE.
You see, OP, the Tomb of Pharoah King
Tut was opened UN-TOUCHED (reportedly
by Carter) in the 1920's supposedly laying
undisturbed some 3,000 years before Christ
and THAT'S A VERY BIG DEAL, INDEED!
Wouldn't THAT BE A SHOCK TO THE ARCHEOLOGY
COMMUNITY! WOW!
Interesting thread OP Thanks! I enjoyed it!
Cheers!

Bottom mountain range is pretty common Himalayan imagery.

Center symbol is Sanskrit or attempt at Sanskrit - looks like maybe the Green Tara seed syllable, but not sure...trying to find good example of that for comparison.

Cool information. While I like what you're saying, I just don't see it. I mean it's hard to say that's even a scarab in the artifact at all, much less say that it's a bad copy of that entire thing. There aren't enough details. Initially, to me the top three looked like god/demon/ET heads. There are teeth eyes and what look like long pointed ears. The eyes all over might mean someone is watching, assuming they are eyes. Like someone said earlier, it could be showing distance to show that objects are flying up.

On the other hand the "teeth" from the top three could be rockets, seeing as how they seem to be under all of the objects. What are the disc shapes underneath them though?



What if the "teeth" are actually just indicators to show what is inside the discs? Maybe it's describing a civilization leaving the planet, or just a few visitors heading out?
