What other discoveries are waiting to be found just beneath the surface?
Watch a video of this report here:
Scientists have discovered a megalith at the bottom of the Mediterranean Sea just off the coast of Italy that is over 10,000 years old.
The study reveals that ‘It is broken into two parts, and has three regular holes: one at its end which passes through from part to part, the others in two of its sides’.

Underwater analysis and observation has concluded that the megalith was constructed by humans.
The scientists say it was ‘cut and extracted as a single stone from the outer rectilinear ridge’ and ‘presume that it weighs about 15 tons‘.
How exactly it was transported and possibly erected, and what it was used for, are unknown factors at this point.

Scientists now believe that this discovery will rewrite our ‘views on technological innovation and development achieved by the Mesolithic inhabitants’ of the area. They admit that the cutting, extraction, transportation and installation of the megalith would require both ‘important technical skills and great engineering‘.

A wide variety of theories exist on the lost history of our planet. Earlier this year, scientists found evidence of alien-seeding taking place on Earth . Moreover, scientists now believe they have proof that life once existed on Mars .
Do you believe there are huge chapters of human history missing from the textbooks?

Rock of ages: Man-made 10,000yo monolith found off Italian coast
A massive monolith over 10,000 years old has been found in the Mediterranean Sea near Italy, scientists say. The block, which was apparently constructed by humans, bears traces of prehistoric civilization.
The 12-meter-long monolith “resting on the sea-floor” was located at a depth of 40 meters, in a shallow bank of the Sicilian Channel, says the report by ocean scientists from Italy and Israel published in July.
“It is broken into two parts, and has three regular holes: one at its end which passes through from part to part, the others in two of its sides.”
