In 2008, a team of archaeologists and journalists filming a documentary were conducting excavations at a sealed tomb dating back to the Ming Dynasty in Shangsi, southern China, when they made a puzzling discovery. As they were clearing soil from a coffin before opening it, they found a small, golden ring with a watch face on its front, approximately two millimeters thick. The hands on the watch showed that the time had frozen at 10:06 and the back of the ring had the word "Swiss" or "Switzerland" written in English. This was strange because Switzerland, as we know it today, did not exist during the Ming Dynasty, which ended in 1644, and the artifact, a Swiss ring watch, only dates back to the last century. Some suggest that the tomb may not have been as secure as initially believed, allowing early tomb raiders or explorers to gain access. Others propose that if the watch had been dropped within the last century, a rodent may have carried it into the tomb. The idea of time travelers from the future leaving the watch behind is also intriguing but has little evidence to support it.

Twelve-year-old Dominique Perrot and his parents identifying a portal they witnessed to another dimension in 1976


In November to December 1973, a small house in La Machine (Nièvre) gained attention as a young boy named Dominique Perrot claimed to hear knocks on his bedroom wall every evening, convinced that a "spirit" wanted to speak to him. The boy's parents, worried about the situation, sought help from the local police. Despite their investigations, the officers were unable to rationally explain the origin of the noises. Police officer Bernard Guilbert was informed by the teenager's parents and went to the scene with his tape recorder, determined to solve the mystery. He recorded almost thirty minutes of the strange noises on magnetic tape, but to this day, it remains unclear what the young boy was actually hearing.
