The 400 million years old London Hammer – Discover in Texas in 1936

The London Hammer was embedded in concrete, a limestone rock originating from the Cretaceous rock formation over 400 million years ago! The 6 inch long hammerhead contains 96.6% iron and has not rusted since its discovery!

The London Hammer, sometimes called a “London artifact”, is the name given to a hammer made of iron and wood that was found in the United States in 1936 in London, Texas. Many have claimed that the hammer is actually a 400 million year old Artifacts.

In June 1936, Max Hahn and his wife Emma were out for a walk when they saw a log that was charred to its core. He decided to take the oddity home and later opened it with hammer and chisel. Ironically, all they found was a type of arctic hammerhead.

A team of archaeologists checked it out, and as it turned out, the rock enclosing the hammer was over 400 million years old. The hammer itself turned out to be over 500 million years old. Additionally, a portion of the handle has begun alteration to coal.
The hammer head, composed of over 96.6% iron, is far purer than anything found in nature without the aid of modern technology.

The hammer began to attract widespread attention in 1983 after it was purchased by creationist Carl Baugh, who claimed the artifact was a “monumental ‘pre-Flood’ find.” Baugh has used this as the basis for a hypothesis about how the atmospheric quality of the pre-Flood Earth could have encouraged the evolution of giants.
