Massive undersea structure in Sea of Galilee of mysterious origin

Massive undersea structure in Sea of Galilee of mysterious origin, When archeologists discovered a massive stone structure weighing 60,000 tons at the bottom of the Sea of Galilee they had no idea what it could be. According to an April 12 report in the Los Angeles Times, a group of researchers shared their thoughts on the use of the structure in the Journal of Nautical Archaeology recently.

Although the circular rock structure, that measures twice the diameter of Stonehenge, was discovered in 2003, until now, scientists had no idea what the purpose of stone structure was. Even though they admit that further study is required to accurately determine its purpose there are some definite possibilities.

Some believe the stone structure represents a fishery. Similar stone installations, discovered in the area were used in ancient times to create a place for fish to gather. These fisheries have been documented in the Sea of Galilee. Previous fisheries discovered have been much smaller than this structure.

Others suspect that the stone structure was built on land and became submerged under the sea as the water level rose.

No one knows for sure who built this massive stone structure on the bottom of the Sea of Galilee or what its purpose was, but it appears to date back more than 4,000 years.
