This incredible technology was widespread in antiquity and evidence of it can be found in all corners
of the world. Prehistoric builders used stones, the toughest surfacing material found on Earth to create perfectly round holes.
This impressive cutting-holes-in-stone technique reveals our ancestors were familiar with alien technology in ways we can hardly comprehend today.
Large-sized holes found in ancient stone demanded engineering skills and proper cutting equipment.
All kind of stones (even the hardest ones) were drilled for architectural, ritualistic or symbolic functions.
The hardness of stone did not limit the ingeniousness of the prehistoric builders!
Impressive cutting-holes-in-stone technology.
"The craftsmen who did this had mastery of the principles of drilling round hollow holes in any material, soft or hard: wood, stone, or metal, and could
have drilled virtually any naturally occurring material on this planet…" wrote Robert Francis (The Global Education Project).
Cutting-holes-in-stone technology is visible on the island of Sumatra, Indonesia.
The island was known in ancient times by the Sanskrit name of Swarnadwi-pa ("Island of Gold")
and the mysterious tradition of cutting perfect holes in stone was also known in West Cornwall, where can be found Men-an-Tol stone of the hole), a very famous,
a typical and unique stone!
It should be added that nobody even knows the purpose of The Men-an-Tol and how old it is.
Similar holes were created in ancient Egypt, in Abusir and Abu Ghurob, located some two kilometers south of Giza and in the "Sanctuary of the Knife"
in the vicinity of the Neferefre pyramid complex at Abusir.
Impressive skills of prehistoric craftsmen are also seen on ancient stones found in Ugarit ruins, which was a stone-built city near Latakia, an important port
city of Syria.
Looking at these impressive cutting-holes-in-stones technique one wonders if not plenty of our technologies which are thought to be modern have ancient roots
or in some cases may have been lost and then reinvented.
35 Unusual Small Pyramids With Graves Discovered In Sudan
Archaeologists have uncovered 35 small pyramids with graves, dating back around 2,000 years when a kingdom known as Kush ruled over Sudan.
In ancient times, the Kingdom of Kush, also called Nubia - the Land of Gold was located on the Nile River, to the south of ancient Egypt.
