union of nomadic peoples that inhabited large parts of present-day Mongolia and
Siberia from the 3rd century BC to the 1st century AD the ethnic identity at
the core of the Xiong nu remains a mystery as there aren’t sufficient
historical sources confirming their origins what’s known is that they were
fierce warriors particularly on horseback the Xiong nu Empire was
founded by modu Chen Yu he rose to power by ordering the execution of his father
in 209 BC and became the supreme leader of the Xiong nu the decline of China’s
Qin Dynasty enabled modu to expand the borders of his empire into one of the
largest in the world at the time considering that it was a steep empire

tribute number seven nations the Dacians with inhabitants of the

Roman legions under emperor Domitian dashians were fierce ambush warriors

Kingdom south of the Dead Sea the source of their wealth was control over the
caravan trade from the Arabian interior to the coast the capital of the
Nabataean kingdom was Petra amounted as fortress found in southern Jordan the
Nabataeans were accustomed to living in the barren desert and would use this
knowledge and the rocky terrain against their enemies there’s evidence in
present-day Petra that the Nabataeans were skilled at agriculture harvesting
rainwater and stone carving during the reign of King arretez the third the
Nabataeans controlled Damascus as well as Cole’s Syria the kingdom was
ultimately conquered and annexed by the Roman Emperor Trajan number five I scene

thousand five hundred and fifty BC in the eastern Mediterranean region known
as the Levant unlike the barren landscape of today the Levant at the
time of the Nats of feein culture was mostly woodlands the Nats of fiends
settled the location of present-day Jericho which would make the city the
world’s longest continuously inhabited urban area the NAT affines might have
been the ancestors of the Neolithic communities in the region evidence
suggests they purposefully cultivated rye which is believed to be the earliest
example of agriculture in history graves at NAT afine sites represent the
earliest evidence for domestication of the dog as people were found buried with
canids the NAT afyon culture also exhibits the oldest examples of bread
making and beer making dates him back to approximately 12,000 BC number three
Dillman civilization one of the earliest sources mentioned in Dillman comes from

place in Sumerian mythology as the place where creation occurred described as the
land of the living it was depicted in writings as a
paradise with fresh and saltwater met there was no pain or disease in this
land and people never got old indeed some scholars support the theory that
the biblical Garden of Eden was located within the Dillman’s civilization so
which Roman Emperor conquered and annexed Dacia

Romans fought two wars against the nation after his defeat in 102 ad

his own life as Roman forces were hunted him down

on the archaeological findings the venture culture dates back to 5 700 to
4500 BC the prehistoric society covered aside from present-day Serbia parts of
Bulgaria and Romania during a population boom in southeastern Europe the society
was mainly preoccupied with food provision through animal husbandry and
agriculture as well as hunting and foraging venture is believed to be among
the earliest cultures to work with copper as reflected by the discovery of
tools and decorative pieces some of the artifacts created by the prehistoric
society bear the Vinci symbols most historians regard these symbols as a
form of decoration there are some however who described them as being
among the earliest forms of writing one hallmark of venture culture are
distinctive figurines which seem to exhibit human and animal features some
ancient astronaut theorists have boys heed to these figurines as an early
example of contact between humans and extraterrestrials
number one Nubian pyramids the pyramids at Moreau which are a unesco world
heritage site represent the fascinating remnants of the ancient koshered
kingdoms from as early as 2500 BC to 300 AD three kingdoms ruled consecutively in
an area of the Nile Valley known as Nubia it’s the region within the north
of present-day Sudan and it’s believed to be one of the earliest cradles of
civilization in antiquity Nubians competed with Egyptians but were also
heavily influenced by them ancient Libyans were powerful warriors
renowned for their skill with the bow and arrow in an eighth century BC the
cush ID invaded Egypt and established the Nubian dynasty also known as the
25th dynasty of Egypt however about a hundred years later they were expelled
from Egypt by the Assyrian Empire Nubian power was centralized around Moreau most

sandstone served as tombs the new beers kings queens and wealthy citizens more
than 350 pyramids have been discovered throughout Sudan their height ranges
from 20 to almost 100 feet and their structure is distinctive from that of

the earliest and most impressive civilisations to take shape south of the

100 thoughts on “8 Lost Ancient Civilizations You’ve Never Heard of

  1. I would like to see what's going on with all the sightings of beings that either are or look like the Rake. They have really been seen in caves which is either fake or real?? One was climbing up a cave wall in Russia somewhere I believe…creepy!!

  2. Thank you this is the way a great youtube channel should run, many pictures about the topic, few pictures of emotion and a lot of historical facts. You should have twice as many subs in my opinion.

  3. Some of the ‘civilisations’ you are describing were kingdoms or offshoots of other civilisations…. the Dacians were a subgroup of the Thracians & the people who built the Nubian Pyramids followed Egyptian culture. History is a specialised subject, digest it properly before you teach others😂😂😂

  4. Am I the only one that hate channels that say "you've never heard of" and then proceed to tell you about things most people have heard of (at least some of them?) Come on, They will kill you, at least have the good grace to say "you may not have heard of". Everybody over the age of 9 in the UK has heard of the Iceni and I, for one, have heard of all but two or three of the rest of this lot.

  5. Heard of:
    Dacians, (Trajan's column and all; and those are Greek, not Roman coins at 2:55 that the Romans are supposedly paying the Dacians.); 
    Nabateans
    Iceni
    Nubians
    (Hadn't heard of the Natufians, but as the video implies it sounds more like a culture than a 'civilization')

  6. The Nebateans did not build Petra it was already built and abandoned when they discovered it and decided to live there for a while before moving on to a different spot just like the Romans did many years later once they stumbled upon it.

  7. Only one of these civilizations I hadn't heard of before, the Dilians (sp? they were the only one you didn't specifically caption). The Iceni and the Dacians in particular are pretty well known to anyone who has studied Roman history.

  8. I've already heard of most of these, and the Iceni were NOT a civilization, they were a tribe, part of the Briton civilization.

  9. sometimes the shreeky type background music gets annoying. your voice is so good but that music is WHACK

  10. I actually HAVE heard of the Iceni! I majored in history at university but knew of Boudicca LONG before that and educated several ignorant Americans about Britannia and the burning of Londinium! And I’m sorry but you’re wrong, it was only one legion, they only won because she got cocky and followed them as they were on their way back to Rome! She cornered them and that was her downfall, ultimately she lost but she had almost completely run the Roman’s out! And she was vicious! I don’t think I can even post what she did but she did some horrible things and mutilated Roman women became of the rape of her daughters!

  11. The queen of Iceni was a Celt with a Celtic name. To pronounce the name properly you need to use Celtic pronouncing rules.
    I write it phonetically here (Boo – Di – Ka), pronouncing here name wrong will trigger Celts everywhere. Repeated abuse means they will kill you.

  12. "Steep empire" says the narrator, but the text says "steppe empire"? I can't quite djengis what's up with that…

  13. Heard of them all. Go find some new info. Most of this is just plagiarism from old videos and books.

  14. Do you really need the stupid creepy music that doesn't fit the video for an otherwise interesting history vid?

  15. The fuck is the point of the stock creepy background music? It already sounds obnoxious and way too on-the-nose in the 2000 videos about "creepy" content on youtube that use it, it's significantly worse and absurdly grating in this video which isn't even supposed to be creepy.

  16. How about adding the Urartu civilization in southern Caucasus and surrounding areas?
    The Chibcha civilization of 16th century Colombia? Funan of Southeast Asia?

  17. So I knew about the Dacians, Nabateans, Iceni, Natufians, and Vinca civilizations, as well as Nubian/Kushite civilization and their pyramids, but overall a very interesting video. Will definitely be checking out more of them.

  18. I had personally have a basic knowledge of all of your "Lost" civilization, the fact that you don't know something, doesn't make that thing a great "Mysterious dilemma" thanks. Oh, and Steppe is different from Steep!

  19. Only one menetion
    8:38 The ruins of Sarmisegetusa depicted are actually the ruins of the Sarmegetusa Ulpia Traiana – the capital built by Trajan after the conquest of Dacia.
    The ruins of the original Dacian capital was Sarmisegetusa Regia, the one depicted at 2:26.
    I know this because I live near both of capital ruins.
    Great content! Keep up the good work!

  20. Some of these are pretty well known. You shouldve added some of the Pre-Columbian American Civilizations like Caral-Supe in Peru, The Olmecs in Mexico, Zapotecs in Mexico, The Mississippians along Missouri River, and the Puebloans in the Southwest USA.

  21. Word of advice….

    Don't ever put "… You've Never Heard Of" in ANY of your titles.
    It's incredibly presumptive and insulting.
