I’m lost for words!

RUSSIA. In the remote Kamchatka peninsula (map below), 200 km from Tigil, University of St. Petersburg archaeologists discovered a strange fossil. The authenticity of the find has been certified. According archaeologist Yuri Golubev, occurs that, in this case the discovery surprised scientists by its nature, at least - unusual, able to change history (or pre-history).

It is not the first time that is an artifact, an ancient object, something like this is found in that region. But, surprisingly conserved, this specific artifact is - at first glance, inlaid in rock (which is understandable since the peninsula is home to numerous volcanoes). Subjected to analysis, the conjunct showed to be made of metal parts that seem to form a mechanism, a gear which may be of a type of watch or computer. The astonishing is that all the pieces were dated in 400 million! of anos.Yury Gobulev commented:

We got a call from the prefec of Tigil. He told us that hikers that were walking in place, found these remains in rock. We went to the place indicated, and initially we not understand what we saw. There were - hundreds of toothed cylinders which appeared to be parts of a machine.

They were in perfect state of conservation, as if they were frozen in a short period of time. It was necessary control the area, because soon the curious began to appear in large numbers. Other scientists, americans geologists, defined the piece as an amazing and mysterious artifact.

Nobody could believe that 400 million years ago could have existed on Earth even a man [even more a machine]. At that time, the forms of vida were very simple, but the finding, [simply] - clearly suggests the existence of intelligent beings capable of such technology. Certainly, such beings would had come from other planets. It is possible that a spaceship can had was damaged [or there was an accident] and it was abandoned in place

It was found also that the parts have reached to the fossilization state in a period of time historicaly and geologically short. Possibly, the “machine” fell into a swamp. Despite the findings, cautious, scientists prefer to consider that the evidences are not definitive - yet. And Gobulev ponders: Refuse the existence of technology [even in past as indented] is a serious mistake because evolution is not linear.

oh oh

Hmmmm, and I don’t suppose there is any possibility that those could be fossils of some kind of ammonite or similar creature.  Some of those had pretty regular and interesting forms.

Yeah, was gonna say that those looked like ammonites to me. That’s assuming of course that their source is in any way shape or form reliable.. which I doubt.

It looks like some sort of fossilised coral.

It’s gotta be one of two obvious possibliities

1) Aliens did it

2) It’s the remains of a time machine

He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.

Some kind pf fossilized primitive sea creature was my guess. 400 million years ago, multicellular life was in its infancy, relatively speaking.

I´m sure LaMa will come up with the name of the critter.

I am an archaeologist, not a paleontologist. Archaeologists only deal with human artifacts.

Which these are not.

With some help of the comments on the Brazialian blog, the identity of the pictured objects has however been established.

In fact, it are specimens of a fossil crinoid (sea-lilly), and the picture is taken directly from Wikicommons:

The latter suggest this is all a hoax.

More exactly, it are stem-fragments of a stemmed crinoid. This type of stem-segment is pictured in a.o.: Jean le Menn (1987), Growth patterns and evolutionary trends of Devonian crinoid columns. Geobios nr. 20, 811-829 (link, full paper behind Elsevier paywall).

Crinoids are not plants, but very primitive animals that live on corals.

Very similar crinoid stem segments (from: Gluchowski, E. 1993. Crinoid assemblages in the Polish Givetian and Frasnian.
Acta Palaeontologica Polonica 38, 1/2, 35-92.)

I have some fossilised crinoids somewhere, but mine are pretty small!
