The 5000-year-old Kochno-Stone contains about 90 intricate spirals and intentions, which, according to some authors, represent an ancient space map. Discovered in 1887, the secret stone remained buried for decades to protect it from vandalism.
One of the most fascinating archaeological riddles is the discovery of the so-called Stone of Kochno.
Discovered in 1887 by the Rev. James Harvey, the ancient stone measures 13 meters at 7.9 and contains about 90 complex carvings, considered one of the best sets of petroglyphs in Scotland, which, according to many researchers, are a cosmic map detailing planets and stars.
After its discovery, in 1965, archaeologist Louis McLellan Mann decided to bury a massive slab under several feet of soil to protect it from further damage and not allow people to put their own carvings on it.
Until now, archaeologists can not agree with what is accurately depicted on a massive slab.
Among the archaeologists there is no consensus on the importance of complex symbols found on its surface. Perhaps this is a map of heaven or earth? Altar, where rituals were held?
Some suggested that the stove is in fact the portal of life and death, symbolizing rebirth.
Some archaeologists theorize that complex drawings of domes, lines and rings are an ancient expression of rock art that has been found in many parts of the world.
According to experts, the symbols refer to the Neolithic and Early Bronze Age, but there are some examples that have been found to date from the Iron Age.
Researcher Alexander McCallum suggested that the Kochnevy Kamen is a map showing other settlements in the Clyde Valley.
Incredible marks remind of huge circles on the fields, which were so often attributed to extraterrestrial civilizations. Interestingly, other similar plates were found in northern Spain, in Mexico, Greece and even in India.
