A Giant Sphere Was Just Found, And Some Think That It's From An Ancient Civilization
He thinks that humans made this thing 1,500 years ago, but other researchers aren't so sure.
Writer and stand up comedian in NY. Check out my monthly comedy show Roomie Raiders at the Creek and The Cave! @timunken A bizarre sphere has been found in the forest near Zavidovi?i, Bosnia, and some speculate that it's an artifact that was left behind by an ancient civilization.
Archaeologist Semir Osmanagi? thinks that this strange find could be part of a series of several other spheres that were sadly destroyed by treasure hunters decades ago. If that's true, then this one could be 1,500 years old.

Unfortunately for Semir Osmanagi?, the scientific community isn't convinced that the sphere was created by humans. Mandy Edwards of the University of Manchester believes that the roundness could be attributed to erosion.

Dr. Osmanagi? is no stranger to controversy. In 2005, he claimed that he discovered ancient pyramids in Bosnia's Visoko Valley, and the European Association of Archaeologists basically called him crazy because of it. I have to hand it to him, though. His theory about this sphere is way cooler than the alternative.
