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.

These stones look more like mill stones. Long time ago I have seen 2 oxen tied to a yoke which in turn would be tethered to a mill stone in a round stone walled groove. The oxen would be walking around in a circle with the round stone being pulled along in the stone walled groove where lime stone mortar would be made into a fine paste and used in construction. In another case similar method was used to extract oil from oil seeds. Over a period of time I believe the stone would wear down to the present look it has got. The oxen were blind folded to avoid them getting dizzy while walking around in a circle continuously !!! I think these stones did similar work in antiquity. Also look at the location where they were found, The first picture with the crane shows an old mined surface, and the second picture says coal mine area. I think the gentlemen researchers should be looking for where the end product was used to understand why these stones have the almost perfect round shape. Its just my opinion. Every one is welcome to comment on it.

What "pre flood times"?

Can't let the naysayers rule this one. Those are discs, and look like UFO's that's the truth. But were they used in ancient times as technology in pre flood times? maybe.

Well, they probably aren't very old; but, interesting nevertheless.
