How Could We Have Missed This? It’s Out of Place, Out of Time and…
Lamont Wood titillates the senses in a page turner of a new book, “Out of Place in Time and Space: Inventions, Beliefs, and Artistic Anomalies That Were Impossibly Ahead of Their Time. Researching and revealing many things that appeared long before their time, in Out of Place in Time and Space, he delves into (so‐called) impossibilities, such as:
· Objects, beliefs, and practices that appeared long before they could have been invented
· Items and art that were not yet created turning up in the paintings and artifacts––only now could we possibly have recognized what they are
· Roman‐era war engines that were impossible to produce until hundreds of years later
· UFOs that were never officially documented in any time period, yet showing up in medieval paintings.
Out of Place in Time and Space explores anachronistic artifacts and looks for explanations.
Sometimes we can understand from whence they came, and sometimes we cannot. And yet, taken together, these enigmas indicate that we are surrounded by evidence that history—and perhaps time itself—is not as straightforward as we have believed.
