Aluminium Wedge of Aiud


The Aluminium Wedge of Aiud – Mysterious Artefact

In 1974, the Aluminium Wedge of Aiud, is a mysterious artefact of uncertain origin in the shape ofa wedged shaped object which had been found around two kilometres east of Aiud, Romania, on the banks of the Mures River. The object is said to be discovered 35 feet beneath the sand and along with two mastodon bones which is said to be an extinct large tusked mammal species.

The artefact seems to be similar to the head of a hammer and the wedge was apparently taken to the Archaeological Institute Cluj-Napoca for examination. It was found to be 20.2 cm long, 12.5 cm wide and 7 cm high, weighing approx. 2.3 kg having two arms and two cylindrical holes. It was found to be made of an alloy of aluminium covered in a thin layer of oxide.

The alloy of the wedge seemed to be composed of 12 various elements and this artefact is strange due to the aluminium which has not been discovered till 1808 as well as not produced in quantity till 1885. Aluminium essentially needs 1,000 degrees of heat in order to be made and the fact that the wedge found in the same layer of earth as mastodon bone would make it almost 11,000 years old.

Indication of Aliens’ Visit to Earth

Several people have claimed that the artefact is indication that aliens had visited the Earth. Besides, engineers have reported that the object bear a resemblance to the foot of landing gear, like the technology utilised on spaceships. According to the article it was examined a second time in Lausanne, Switzerland coming up with the same results though no mention has been made regarding which establishment had carried out the second analysis.

 Florin Gheroghita, had the opportunity of examining the report and the analysis performed under the direction of Dr Niederkorn of the institute for the study of metals and non-metallic minerals- ICPMMNM located in Magurele, Romania.

 He stressed that it was composed of an alloy of extremely complex metal and affirms that the ally comprised of 12 different element of which he had been successful in establishing the volumetic percentage of the aluminium – 89%. He also identified the presence of Copper – 6,2%, silicon 2,84%, zinc 1,81%, lead 0,41%, pond, 0,33%, zirconium 0,2%, cadmium 0,11%, nickel 0,0024%, cobalt0,0023%, bismuth 0,0003%, silver – 0,0002% and trace amounts of gallium.

Purpose of Artefact/Lack of Data

Most of the scientists are of the belief that the wedge was made here on earth and the purpose was not identified and not much information has been found with regards to the subject. Lack of data could probably be explained by the restrictions that were imposed on archaeology and history by the communist rule during that time.

Other specialists claim that the object could be 20,000 years old since it was found in layer with the mastodon bone and this particular case lived in the later part of the Pleistocene. Some other researchers presume that this piece of metal could have been a part of a flying object which could have fallen into the river and that it had an extra-terrestrial origin. The aluminium wedge of Aiud still remains a mystery.
