Shigir Idol

"A mysterious wooden idol found in a Russian peat bog has been dated to 11,000 years ago - and contains a code no one can decipher. The Shigir Idol is twice as old as the Pyramids and Stonehenge - and is by far the oldest wooden structure in the world. Even more mysteriously, it is covered in what experts describe as ‘encrypted code’ - a message from a lost civilization."

NEAT Gotthard Base Tunnel

Switzerland has completed construction on the world's longest tunnel.

Europe’s most densely populated belt, historically known as the "blue banana," stretches from northern England south through the Netherlands, Switzerland, France, and Germany into northern Italy.

Most of this area — inhabited by approximately 111 million people — is relatively flat, except for Switzerland’s notorious Alps. The Gotthard Pass has proven itself a vital link between Switzerland and northern Italy for hundreds of years.

Red Book of Westmarch

"At the Council of Elrond, Bilbo clearly states that he is an unreliable narrator and has to 'correct' the story of how he came to possess the ring. Similarly, Frodo is shown (subtly) to be an unreliable narrator. The ring verse is misstated, for example, in the second book (or fourth book, depending on how you count) if I remember correctly."
