Today, without leaving a soft chair in front of a computer monitor, each of us can carefully consider from all sides mysterious neolithic balls (virtual copies of them in 3D see below), which are still puzzling in the scientific community: what is this

These mysterious stone products in the form of curly balls found in Norway, England, Scotland, Ireland, on the islands Orkney. Their first samples were found more than two centuries ago, and then they periodically came across to archaeologists.

The amazing thing about these artifacts is that they are made at the end of the stone age, but so skillfully that experts shrug: how is this possible? The fact is that using only stone tools to produce such a work of art it’s simply impossible, unless, of course, we take into account the eternal riddle for scientists – how ancient people could have completely incomprehensible technologies that are superior in some ways to our current achievements?..

All of these ball-sized artifacts are about the size of a baseball ball. And striking in them is not only their ideal form, incomprehensible finely machined stone surface, but also itself purpose of these balls. Versions about how they used, many, but they all look as if their attracted by the ears. For example, that these are the oldest weights for shopping operations or devices for transporting heavy blocks and slabs in the construction of ancient monumental structures, and so on Further.

In fact, no one really knows their true nature, the way manufacturing, as well as the purpose. Note that the current virtual copies of these ancient artifacts were made on the basis of stone balls stored at the National Museum of Scotland. Striking it turned out to be a fact that when working with curly products scientists discovered new details on them, for example, almost indistinguishable drawings. It’s clear that the theory of their building functions is right there It disappears, however, like many other versions.

And the mystery of antiquity remains the same mystery. But see it can now be more carefully, which is almost impossible in the museum. Maybe at the same time it will come to your mind an interesting thought about these stone Neolithic artifacts …
