Stone atoms of antiquity

The collection of the Ashmolean Museum of Scotland contains five unusual carved stone balls. The purpose of these items is archaeologists difficult to explain. Balls made of various materials – sandstone and granite. Scientists believe that these items are made approximately between 3000 and 2000 BC. Total in About 400 similar artifacts were found in Scotland, but five of The ones stored in the museum are the most unusual. As seen in the photo on strange symmetrical patterns are applied to the surface of the stones.

No less an interesting stone was found in Aberdeenshire, its diameter about three inches (about eight centimeters). On him three embossed round “caps” are carved spiral patterns similar to symbols. It was made between 2500 and 1900 years before our era. Geometry of the Ancients Five stones of the Ashmol Museum were previously in a private collection British archaeologist, pioneer of ancient Minoan civilization Sir John Evans, who believed that they could be used in as shells for ancient throwing weapons. However it is the explanation does not seem true, since there are no stones on the stones damage, which would necessarily happen if they were used during military skirmishes. Yes, and the very shape of the stones, their complexity manufacture suggest that try so hard, making shells, pointless.

But all of these versions do not explain why. It was to make stones of such a complex shape. There is one more possible explanation. What if these stones are sketchy image of atoms? A similar image is widely used in modern world. Is it possible that the one who made these artifacts, had deep knowledge in chemistry and portrayed various atomic structures? At least the manufacturing method of these artifacts leaves no doubt that the master is excellent versed in geometry, having a good understanding of complex polyhedra. However, during the Neolithic period, people did not have such knowledge. Or did they possess? Фотоиз открытых источников Фотоfrom open sources Nikolay SUBBOTIN
