Samir Osmanagic discovered a large spherical ball in the forest of Bosnia

AN archaeologist made a startling discovery in Bosnia when he unearthed a large mysterious spherical object which he believes belongs to an ancient civilization.

Semir Osmanagic, who has been nicknamed the Bosnian Indiana Jones, found the large sphere in the forests of the southeastern European country and says that it dates back more than 1,500 years.

Mr Osmanagic has spent years trying to prove the existence of pyramids in Bosnia and has also travelled the world, particularly South America, searching for similar rocks, or stone balls.

It could point to an ancient civilisation

He has found them in 20 separate locations to date.

He wrote on a blog titled Biggest Stone Ball Found In Europe: “I’ve been researching prehistoric stone ball phenomenon for 15 years.

“Most of the stone balls were located near small town of Zavidovici.


These balls have been found in 20 separate locations

“It used to be 80 of them in 1930s.

“Most of them have been destroyed in 1970s after rumours of gold being hidden in the middle of them, some were taken by locals and moved to their backyards.”

The ball has a radius of 1.5 metres and weighs a hefty 88,184 lbs.

Scientists are yet to conduct tests to decipher what the ball is made of, but it’s rusty coloring suggests that it is abundant in iron.

Mr Osmanagic added: “What would be the significance of this discovery?

“First, it would be another proof that Southern Europe, Balkan and Bosnia in particular, were home for advanced civilisations from distant past and we have no written records about them. 

“Secondly, they had high technology, different than ours.

“Finally, they new the power of geometrical shapes, because the sphere is one of the most powerful shapes along with pyramidal and conical shapes. 

“No wonder, that pyramids and tumulus phenomena can also be found in Bosnia.”
