New Sphere found in the Zon
By: Zona Sur
Archaeologists from the National Museum of Costa Rica identified a new ancient stone sphere from an earlier civilization. The stone monolith found measures 1.23 meters in diameter, is in perfect condition and is located on a private estate in the Finca 12 sector, in Palmar Sur de Osa.
The last one found in context had been in 2007 at the Finca 6 archaeological site.
The finding came from the call of an individual alerting to the presence of a pre-Columbian stone sphere.
Archaeologists and officials from the National Museum visited the site to verify the authenticity of the object.
Due to the relevance and complexity of the place, the National Museum proposes to preserve the sphere in its place and to carry out investigations that allow a better understanding of the archaeological environment and design conservation and cultural management actions.
