What about this mysterious man-made sphere discovered by a controversial archeologist in Bosnia?The specialist claims this bizarre natural sphere is the world’s oldest man-made sphere proving Europe has an advanced lost civilisation that used impressive technology more than 1,500 years ago.
The giant ball of rock has a radius of between four and five feet (1.2 to 1.5 metres) and is extremely iron rich. Semir Osmanagic discovered the ‘stone ball’ near the town Zavidovici in central Bosnia and Herzegovina and said it is the heaviest man-made ball in the world.
Dr Osmanagic had previously hit the headlines for his work on the supposed existence of ancient pyramids in the Visoko Valley, which he believes are hidden in plain sight as a cluster of hills. The phenomenon of stone balls has been linked with ancient civilisations around the world with the most famous being the stone spheres of Costa Rica. In total there are around 300, weighing up to 15 tonnes, which are believed to have been created by the now extinct Diquis culture, potentially making them up to 1,500 years old.
It is unclear how they were created but it is believed they were first sculpted from a local stone before being hammered and polished with sand.
If the huge stone in Bosnia is found to be made by human hands, it would be the largest man-made stone ball ever found – twice as heavy as the Costa Rican ones.
But there seems to be no proof that the ‘sphere’ is anything more than an unusual product of nature at the moment. These images actually reminds me of the Moeraki boulders in New Zealand.
