A report by Newsweek. The ancient structure is called a circle – it is a large circular structure of similar age found scattered around Central Europe.
Although the form and pattern of these circles vary widely, they are made up of a complex of grooves divided by several entrances. The diameter of some of these models exceeds 200 meters, the outlet added.
The exact purpose of this circular structure, which may have been used by a nearby farming community some 7,000 years ago during the Late Neolithic, or Neolithic, is unknown. These circles were made between 4600-4900 BC. They are about 180 feet (55 meters) in circumference, about the same height as the Leaning Tower of Pisa, reports International Radio Prague.
In the Vino area of Prague, such a circle is currently being examined. According to the research to date, the structure has a remarkable degree of preservation. The unbroken ruins of the vaulted troughs, into which the original wooden central structure was embedded, shocked archaeologists.
Miroslav Kraus, who is currently in charge of the excavation, told International Radio Prague “Despite these findings, it remains unclear what purpose these structures served.”
“One of such theories is that it could be used as an economic center, a commercial center. It could also be a center of a certain religious sect, where rituals are performed. Passage or rituals related to the time of year, built in the Stone Age when man had not yet discovered iron, the only tools they could use were stone and animal bones. “, added Mr. Kraus.
To date, about 200 circles have been discovered in Central Europe, 35 of which are located on the territory of the Czech Republic. The shop adds that the 55-meter diameter circular in Vino has a special floor design with three independent entrances.
