History is often associated with mystery. It is the mystery in history that makes it interesting. Very few reliable facts are available about the major ancient civilizations.

Research continues to determine the nature and origins of these civilizations including any advanced technologies that they may have possessed. The archaeological sites related to these civilizations are major tourist attractions. There is an on going debate about the origins and the possible technologies that these ancient civilizations possessed. This debate has been a source of great excitement, wonder and mystery.

The Ancient Astronaut Theory is explored by the TV series on History Channel known as Ancient Aliens. The Indiana Jones movies The Ultimate Quest and Kingdom of the Crystal Skull also explore this concept.
Some believe that the Wheel of Prophet Ezekiel mentioned in the Bible may also support the Ancient Astronaut Theory. The modern day Omni-Wheel robots are fitted with omni-directional wheels similar to those described in the Book of Prophet Ezikiel.
