A giant "monumental" stone structure discovered beneath the waters of the Sea of Galilee in Israel has archaeologists puzzled as to its purpose and even how long ago it was built.
The mysterious structure is cone shaped, made of "unhewn basalt cobbles and boulders," and weighs an estimated 60,000 tons the researchers said. That makes it heavier than most modern-day warships.
Rising nearly 32 feet (10 meters) high, it has a diameter of about 230 feet (70 meters). To put that in perspective, the outer stone circle of Stonehenge has a diameter just half that with its tallest stones not reaching that height.

It appears to be a giant cairn, rocks piled on top of each other. Structures like this are known from elsewhere in the world and are sometimes used to mark burials. Researchers do not know if the newly discovered structure was used for this purpose.
The structure was first detected in the summer of 2003 during a sonar survey of the southwest portion of the sea. Divers have since been down to investigate, they write in the latest issue of the International Journal of Nautical Archaeology.

It's fine in this forum too, so long as it's not the same poster in both locations.

Excellent stuff, Spartan. This gives me a much better visual idea than most other sources I've checked.

its becoming and looking more more a like an ancient ballast dump site to me.
The sea was shallower/water level lower then from what I read, to approach the shallow tide trading ports excess ballast stones were dumped.

"Close inspection by scuba diving revealed that the structure is made of basalt boulders up to 1 m (3.2 feet) long with no apparent construction pattern," the researchers write in their journal article. "The boulders have natural faces with no signs of cutting or chiselling. Similarly, we did not find any sign of arrangement or walls that delineate this structure."

Radar imageryCredit: Shmuel MarcoCompressed High Intensity Radar Pulse (CHIRP) provided the researchers with more information on the structure. It indiciated that its "western face is somewhat steeper than the eastern part."

Hi Logical Thought,

Thank you for bringing this to my notice!

I would say structure was put there by humans, but we need someone here interested in Geology, that can give some idea of the sea level of Galilee through history, also earthquakes that may have buried this structure beneath the sea!

We have many barrows in UK, usaully 4000-2400BC link below:-

http://en.wikipedia....iki/Long_barrow

Understanding in archaeological excavations in England have a theory that "WOOD" has used for the living, and "STONE" was used for the dead in religious symbolism, the structure in the Sea of Galilee is large....with no other information, i would say someone important was buried there!

Will we get to analysis soon?   I doubt it, underwater excavations are very difficult, very like Alexandria, most of the best parts are under the sea, like the Light House!

Reminds me of the Baltic sea anomaly that looked like UFO on the sonar reading.

This is definitely an interesting archeological find.  It'll be amuzing to see how it is interpreted by scientists.  What will they claim this monument is?  Guess we'll find out soon enough.....

There is a grain of truth in every conspiracy known to man, you just have to be intelligent enough to find it.

Rule one, Kmt Sesh and Harte are good and red hot in many things, especially pure Egyptian Religion!

New Age doesn't mean it was started yesterday, all religions were in awe of Egypt, many made their own interpretation in religion, sadly it does have symbolism through to Politics, Big Worry!

Rule Two, There are many things unexplained, but we need proper analysis in going forward...., that is from someone that did go to the right top schools in metaphysics!

Evidence,evidence, evidence, rules!

Please note as yet video below in knowing confusion on date of Barrow, if indeed it is a barrow, i suspect it as yet before further evidence!



I might have pointed ears like Mr Spock in logic, but can only give analysis up to our present stage in developement and evidence, that's all it is!

Hadn't thought of that, you might have a fair point there. Well spotted.
