10,000 year old wall found in the sea, scientists estimate, it was built by Stone Age humans

A kilometre-long wall of stones has been discovered in the Baltic Sea near Mecklenburg Bay, Germany, with scientists estimating the diva could be more than 10,000 years old. This ancient structure was discovered during mapping of marine sediments in the year 2021.

After further study by scientists, it is being speculated that this wall might have been built by Stone Age humans to hunt reindeer. This recently received report has been published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

This wall is made of 1673 stones

This Stone Age structure is located at a depth of 21 meters in the sea near the Gulf of Mecklenburg, Germany. Also, a total of 1673 stones have been used to build this wall, whose height is less than one meter. Its stones are scattered over an area approximately one kilometer long. According to scientists, this is not a natural wall, it could be man-made.

The sound of water revealed the wall

The Mecklenburg Gulf is located in the southwestern part of the Baltic Sea. In the last decade, a lot of research has been done to understand the structure and shape of this sea surface. Information about this ancient structure was obtained from hydroacoustic data collected during one such mapping project. However, a team of researchers has reached the depths of the sea for further investigation.
