Wall of 10,000 years

Argazkia: Michal Grabowsky / Kyel University

In the Gulf of Mecklenburg, in Baltic waters, archaeologists identified in 2021 a stone structure of almost a kilometre. Now a team of interdisciplinary researchers has published a study on the wall in the journal PNAS.

The structure is about 10,000 years old and has come to the conclusion that it is man-made. In northern Europe, a structure similar to that of this time has not been found and the discovery can provide new information on hunter-gatherer communities in the area.

But in the absence of other comparative examples, it is difficult for experts to interpret the role of the structure. However, they raise the first hypothesis that it could be a barrier delimiting the hunting area.
