samuraiknitter: historical-nonfiction: Costa Rica’s Diquís...



Costa Rica’s Diquís Delta stone spheres are one of Central America’s most intriguing archaeological phenomena.  Since the 1930s, hundreds of stone balls have been documented, ranging in size from a few centimeters to over six and a half feet (two meters) in diameter. No half-finished stones have ever been found. And there are over 300 of them. Over 300 round stone spheres, made by human hands, with no discernible purpose or ritual significance.

 Put all together, that the Diquis Delta stones are extremely mysterious.

Maybe they were bored. I’m not saying this to be sarcastic. MAYBE THEY WERE FUCKIN’ BORED. The hunter-gatherer lifestyle requires a fifteen hour work week. what are you gonna do with the rest of the time? 

How many drawings, knitting projects, half-finished fics to you have going that you don’t NEED? MAYBE PEOPLE GOT BORED. WHY IS THIS NOT A THING IN ANTHROPOLOGY WHEN IT IS WELL DOCUMENTED IN MODERN HUMANS. 

I love this idea!!!
