Underwater monolith found off Sicilian coast

2 posts in this topic

PALERMO, Italy, Aug. 10 (UPI) -- Archaeologists have discovered an ancient limestone monolith at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea.

Researchers say the 10,000-year-old stone structure was assembled carved by Mesolithic people who inhabited the string of islands that once dotted the channel between Tunisia and Sicily.

The Stonehenge-style monolith measures 40 feet in length and was found resting some 130 feet beneath the sea's surface. Though it broke in two and rests on its side, researchers say it would have once stood upright, rising more than 40 feet high.

A series of holes weaving through the different parts of the monolith prove that it was man-made. But like Stonehenge, researchers don't know for what purpose it was built.
