Guy Notices Something Weird In A Photo Of Zeus’ Temple, Discovers What They Don’t Teach At School

Published 6 years ago

Recently, Paul Cooper, a PhD student from Norwich, England made an incredible discovery while researching the Temple of Olympian Zeus in Athens, Greece.

“I was researching the forgotten histories of different ruined sites around the world for my PhD, which looks at how our attitudes and artistic representations of ruins has changed over history,” Paul told Bored Panda. “As a novelist and a writer of historical fiction, ruins are important in my work.”

But there was one particular photo that intrigued Paul the most, he noticed that there is something weird perched atop the temple pillars. Without hesitation, he started an interesting investigation and what he found out proves that there is so much they don’t teach us at school.

According to Paul himself, he loves exploring the stories behind many ancient ruins. “Many ruined sites have hidden or erased histories that take place after the building has been ruined,” he said. “For instance, the ruins of the Acropolis in Athens were once the site of an Ottoman mosque, and the Colosseum held a Christian hermitage. The ruins of Palmyra in Syria were once home to a thriving town before it was demolished by French archaeologists in the 1920s.”
