Stone disc

More than a dozen mysterious carved discs found near Volgograd, Russia

A team of investigators in Russia have found more than a dozen stone discs in the Volgograd region of Russia. The team claims that the discs contain tungsten, a high density metal that has applications in military technology.  The nature of the discs remain a mystery.

Russian news site Bloknot Volgograd reports that the finding was made by the Russian UFOlogy and Crytozoology group Kosmopoisk, led by Vadim Chernobrov, during excavations in the Zhirnovsky district of the Volgograd region. The UFO hunters were investigating in the region due its fame for the occurrence of ‘mystical phenomena’.  

While the team had previously discovered more than a dozen disc-shaped stones, they recenly found a particularly large one.

“We already found a dozen of these discs of not more than one meter in diameter and in Kuzbass a disc of about two meters in diameter,” Chernobrov told Bloknot Volgograd, adding that the newest one is unique because it is larger than all the others. 

“The shape..., which resembles the popular image of a flying saucer, has let the imagination of the conspiracy theorists fly,” reports International Business Times . “Scott Waring of UFO Sightings Daily thinks this is proof that aliens exist and claims the disc is made of tungsten. Tungsten is also known as wolfram, and is used in special military technology.”

The UFO investigation team has made lavish claims about the stone discs, stating that they could be about a million years old, and maintaining that they are most probably military drones that were damaged in an attack on Mars before falling to Earth.

Fortunately, scientists at the Zhirnovsky museum are taking a more rational approach and are studying the largest stone disc to determine its age and material.  Some skeptics also believe that the rocks were not even man-made but are simply the result of ordinary rocks shaped by erosion.

Earlier this year, another disc-shaped stone object was discovered in Russia by a coal mining company, this time in Siberia’s Kuznetsk Basin. The strange relic was found 40 meters underground, which suggests it is quite old. Archaeologists who examined the stone disc, which is perfectly circular with a diameter of 1.2 meters, stated that it was man-made.

Probably natural, formed like Pyrite or azurite suns get formed.

A machinist could have sculpted titanium with a diamond based tool.

The author of the article calls them both "rock" and "titanium". Which is it? Are they made of titanium ore? The author should have been more clear.

Scott Waring again... Is there nothing that that guy will not claim to be of extra-terrestrial origin? I bet that if I lose my watch outside, after a heavy rainstorm and have it turn up 30 years later to be found entombed in mud, concrete and stone on a beach in Australia hundreds of kilometers from where I lost it, he would say that is 'proof' E.T. had deposited it there millions of years ago or that they had abducted me, stolen my watch for experimenting on human technology (who knows how E. T's minds work?) then discarded it when they lost interest in such a primitive device.
As soon as he is mentioned in ANY these days, I tend to skip reading the article. His name alone is enough to discount any story.

Out of all the necessities in the world, three come to the forefront: food, water and reproduction. While the former two are necessary for the survival of the individual among the many, the latter is necessary for the survival of the many. Thankfully, most people tend to enjoy the process, but in some cultures, it goes far beyond enjoyment. It is valued as an art and worshipped as a religious ideal. Most simply call it sex; others call it a way of life.

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
