Over 1.4 million years ago, our ancestors ventured into the craft of transforming limestone into distinctive spheroids.
For years, a mystery lingered. Were these spheroids intentionally crafted masterpieces or merely accidental by-products of other stone works?
Modern-day scientists embarked on a journey to uncover this mystery. Using cutting-edge analysis, they delved into 150 spheroids from the ancient Ubeidiya site.
Their findings were intriguing. As the spheroids were crafted, the scars didn't just smoothen, they evolved, becoming increasingly spherical.
Nature can erode stones into smooth pebbles, but achieving a near-perfect sphere? That's the mark of deliberate skill and a clear vision.
