Mesolithic shamanistic meteorite talisman unearthed

Archaeologists from the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnology (IAE) in Szczecin, Poland, have discovered a meteorite fragment inside the remains of a hut dating back more than 9,000 years at Bolków by Lake Świdwie in Western Pomerania...

The archaeologists also excavated a rich assemblage of objects with a spiritual association: an amulet, a bone spear tip with engraved decoration and so-called magic wand made of antler, decorated with geometric motifs.

In addition to the remains of the hut, which contained the meteorite, archaeologists discovered a second, almost identical structure. In both of them, within the peat layer, were the preserved traces of hearths.

Excavations in Bolków have been ongoing for several years. The meteorite discovery was made during last year’s work, but only now, thanks to further detailed studies, were they able to conclusively determine the origin of the unusual object.

Four years ago the archaeologists also uncovered a nearly intact Mesolithic hunting bow, from the anaerobic peat deposits covering the site, and it is expected much more will be revealed in the future.

I’ve been told by folks here in India that the “stone” inside that thing is actually a Shivlingam stolen from India during one of the Muslim invasions.

The meteorite is interesting. I wished that they would have put up a photo or two of the other artifacts, as well.

Things of this sort are something that interest me.
