• The ancient civilization that disappeared for unknown reasons,
The human race exists on the planet for thousands of years. It is believed that we already create advanced civilization capable of reach for the stars and unravel all the mysteries of life - so, at least, it seems from the outside. And it does not, however, the story keeps secret information when entire civilizations disappeared in a moment. Some of them even had a fantastic technology for its time. Hard to believe that humanity could disappear in an instant without a trace and everything in nature will return to normal, but it is already listening. And some of these disappearances, we still do not understand.
A powerful civilization that has left a considerable mark on history. Think of the curriculum: the legend of King Agamemnon, the commander of the Greeks during the Trojan War, often referred to Mykene. Home country could not provide residents of all necessary - they became traders, moreover, very skillful. As and when there was a decline of this civilization, confidently standing on his feet, historians can not understand until now. At one point Mycenae fell into decay, and local residents fled to the surrounding towns.
And it is - one of the oldest civilizations in the world. Tripolskaya culture existed several millennia, from 5500 to 2750 BC.

Along with the ancient Egyptian and Sumerian, Indus Valley Civilization is considered one of the oldest in the history of mankind. It occupied a huge territory nestled directly on the two continents. Unfortunately, the Harappan culture also declined: archeologists have found plenty of evidence of how people quite suddenly darts off entire towns and left in the badlands.
Remember labyrinth in which was concluded the mythical (and maybe quite real) Minotaur? All cultures, archaeologists, for convenience, was named after the great king of Crete - Minos. Minoan culture was the first civilization in Europe. Its failure historians associate with the eruption of the volcano, however, this theory has its opponents. In fact, why the eruption could surprise the people who thoroughly knew the habits of their native mountains? And why are they not saved on numerous ships, though reputed to be unrivaled sailors?
Ten thousand years ago the central plains of North America's largest inhabited prehistoric civilization. People Clovis people were unsurpassed hunters and easily dealt with other, smaller and disorganized tribes. All the more strange looks abrupt disappearance of this powerful culture.
