What are we?
I think there is a bit of disparity of evidence on what you have provided and what other theories about technology of the time provide. You have provided three images and made a claim about what they are. (one of which is a battery, which is talked about by other theories) Other archaeologists spend years studying every artifact they can get their hands on, and write extensive academic peer reviewed papers. Suffice to say this thread wouldn't get past peer review.

tl;dr: there is middle ground between blindly accepting mainstream theories about stuff and accepting literally anything. I generally tend to believe more qualified people.
