In Prague, they unearthed a mysterious stone circle older than the pyramids and Stonehenge

In Prague, they unearthed a stone circle, which, according to local scientists, is older than Stonehenge and the pyramids, built about 7,000 years ago, writes Artnet.

We stumbled upon the building back in the 80s of the last century when laying a gas and water pipeline on the outskirts of the capital of Czechoslovakia. But it was only now that it was fully excavated.

It is known that the builders belonged to the pottery culture that existed 4900-4400 BC. For what purpose this circle was created in ancient times, they cannot yet find out.

Scientists also found the remains of a wooden palisade that surrounded the structure, fragments of pottery, stone tools, and animal bones.

Archaeologists hope to establish the exact date of construction using radiocarbon dating.
