Overview

There are paintings from the Middle Ages with helicopters and UFOs. WeGÇÖve found Ancient Greek Computers and Roman Death Rays. The Pacific Front of World War 2 was described 16 years before it started. There are many examples of items and artifacts showing up decades and centuries before they could possibly have been invented.
The existence and documentation of these and many other things impossibly ahead of their time are beyond dispute. Out of Place in Time and Space delves deeply into these impossibilities, showcasing
-+ Objects, beliefs, and practices from the present that appear long before they could have been invented in the past.
-+ Items and art that we havenGÇÖt even created yet turning up in the past paintings and artifacts; that we only now are able to recognize.
-+ Roman-era war engines that were hundreds of years ahead of their time
-+ UFOs, never officially documented in any time period, yet still showing up in medieval paintings.
Out of Place in Time and Space explores these anachronistic artifacts and looks for explanations. Sometimes we can understand where they came from, and sometimes we cannot. But, taken together, these enigmas indicate that we are surrounded by evidence that historyGÇöand perhaps time itselfGÇöis not as straightforward as we have believed.
