The mysterious 20-foot-long penis-shaped stone present in the African country of Ethiopia is 2070 years old. It is 1000 years older than the earlier research. Researchers from Washington State University have revealed this in a recent research about these monoliths. He discovered this by examining samples of charcoal found from the base of these stones made at Chelba Tututi, Sakaro Sodo and Soditi.
All three of these places come in the Gedio Zone area of Ethiopia. This area has the largest concentration of megalithic monoliths in Africa. There are 10,000 monuments in 60 places. Researchers said that the monuments built in Sakaro Sodo were probably built in 50 BC. Earlier it was believed that these monoliths were built in 11 BC. After this discovery, now the real age of these stones shaped like penis has been ascertained.
‘Sakro Sodo the least studied site in the world’
Even though researchers have been able to find out the age of these stones, but what is the purpose of making them, it has not been disclosed yet. Although experts say that some stones were used as a sign of burial. At the same time, some other experts say that these stones were made in memory of the transfer of leadership from one generation to another.
This research has been carried out by the archaeologist Ashenfi Jena and his team. According to Dr Jena, Sakaro Sodo is the least studied site in the world. We want to change it. This team first came in 2013 and then decided to study the site. He said that having so many monuments in such a small space is shocking in itself. Experts after examining all the evidence found that these stones were used for different purposes.
