Re: Most Valuable Artifact


i dont know if its the most valuable artifact but the first thing that comes to my mind is the Rosetta stone, with out it we may never have been able to translate egyption hyroglypts and learn of that anciant civilization

Re: Most Valuable Artifact


Rosetta Stone...great start! Must be one of the tops ever.

As I would expect in this list...no way to put a price tag on it...priceless!

Re: Most Valuable Artifact


Are these artifacts that have been found or that could be found in the future?

Re: Most Valuable Artifact


The thousands of Roman tombstones that have been found across most of Europe, north Africa, and the Middle East are collectively extremely valuable. They provide a fascinating and extremely human and poignant look into ancient times.

Those "crystal skulls" they found in South America were pretty wicked too.

I don't know about most valuable ever, but I figure the dead sea scrolls are probably a pretty big deal.

Re: Most Valuable Artifact


I would think the tombs in Egypt rank high.
