Everyone who has been to Malta except the azure waters of the Mediterranean the sea and the beautiful local beaches, certainly got acquainted with unique Maltese attractions, including still the great mystery of history remains the oldest stone ruts, unknown by whom and why created here.

A network of these prehistoric roads called Misraħ Għar il-Kbir (Misraq Gar Il-Kbir) is popularly referred to as the Clafham knot, that is, as the British “called” them at one time, comparing with London railway station of the same name with its “confusing” rail network.

Mysterious stone ruts of Malta that weave most densely their network “near the Dangli cliffs that are located on southeast island state, presumably, were well visible throughout the recent history of this state, however for a long time, for some reason, no one paid attention to them.

However, for how many decades, scientists have been racking their brains over this a riddle of Malta. Presumably these stone paths did not form earlier than 4 thousand years ago (although in determining age there is no agreement among researchers about this artifact). But here is what surprisingly, at that time there was a bronze age on the island archipelago (at least that’s what the official story “declares”). But because it’s hard to even guess who and why created these mysterious paths, very similar to the railway, because it is also clearly verified by the distance between the furrows, also intersect at angles, also connected – just like modern railway lines.

Some ruts go under water, moreover, they pass along the bottom the gulf and appear on its other shore, which allows the assumption that during the creation of these “megalithic structures’ surface of the islands was different.

Scientists have put forward several theories of the origin of stone furrows. The idea that these ruts are traces of ancient carts. However, many researchers, especially independent ones, believe that such a theory by Orthodox scholars is far-fetched. First of all, how huge should these wagons be? Secondly, the depth of the furrows is, on average, about 60 centimeters, which makes talking about wheels with a diameter of one and a half meters, which is just unlikely for that era.

In addition, next to the stone furrows of Misraħ Għar il-Kbir you can find more geological figures in the form of rectangles and triangles. All this suggests that the ruts were created not at all for driving, and not even for irrigating fields (another theory their origin, the most incredible, I must say), but for some other, yet incomprehensible to us goals. And again – by whom ?. Could not people of the Bronze Age to build such “roads”! After all, in Malta 4 thousands of years ago there wasn’t even a culture commensurate with Apparently, ancient Egyptian tribes lived here. Why do they need all this? Yes, and how they could physically “scribble” purely their land with stone furrows, so amazing in structure, depth and fantastic purpose?

The mystery, however …
