Baltic Object Could be Oldest Structure on Planet

The latest report from the Ocean-X team describes the object found on the floor of the Baltic Sea last summer on sonar as stone, but extremely strange. Their description makes it sound in part as if very ancient stone structures could be present on the object. If so, they would date from prior to the end of the last ice age.

According to the team's report, the object "appeared more as a huge mushroom rising 10-13 feet from the sea bed." It is described as having rounded sides and rugged edges. On its upper surface there were stone formations resembling circular fireplaces, and soot may have been present. During the ice age, the borders of the area now covered by the Baltic Sea were dry land because sea levels were much lower. This would mean that the fireplaces would date from prior to 12,000 BC, making them the oldest confirmed manmade structures on the planet.

However, there is a long way to go before archaeologists can confirm the age of the object, and an extensive underwater expedition will need to be mounted to do it. No evidence has been reported that the object was a crashed flying saucer or a crashed experimental aircraft from the World War II era.
