I came across this rather striking looking wall the other day while I was searching for ancient rock anomalies and thought I'd post it on ATS for your enjoyment


It's situated in a megalithic site in Sardinia Italy. At first sight I thought the lines were painted on but on closer inspection it looks like the lines are actually cut into the stone with some kind of spinning saw/blade? It’s obviously ancient so how did they achieve this and more to the point why?

I’ve seen similar cut marks like this before on the Giza Plateau, have you ever seen anything like this?

Lol what do you mean how did they achieve this? I'm assuming the same tools they carved cave paintings in...... Some of those walls where thick as #

Why do you say the cuts are obviously ancient?
Or, perhaps you can more clearly define "ancient?"
People have been cutting marble with saws for a very long time.

Why does it have to be a "spinning blade"...Why does it have to be ancient. Essentially, how did you draw your conclusions...?


Also, looks like a quarry. Doesn't seem like there is any purpose to the lines cut. But could be remnants of cutting out blocks of rock for other use.

Because of the site where it's situated.

A marble quarry? That's doesn't explain the cuts.

You might want to add pertinent info like the location and name of the site.

whats the building behind? Looks like a base to me? something to do with war? are you sure it's not concrete that had metal poles in it to make those grooves?

Sorry you've lost me here how do you carve a painting? Carving and painting are 2 distinctly different skills.

Alrighty then.
For you sawcutting of stone will be forever a mystery.

Google it. They called the original cave paintings paintings because they used the walls/stones as canvas.... These are just crappy lines though, we also have lines in our sidewalks.... No mystery

Necropole sauvage de Prunitu (Sorradile)-Sardaigne

The majority of archaeological reports on this site of Sorradile are in Italian. lacking a name, map or anything but a general location it isn't possible to determine anything more about this particular retaining wall. My guess is that it is a modern wall built from left overs of a quarry, they got the stone cheap as it had errant saw cuts in it but good enough for a retaining wall.

The marble quarries at Carrara, Toscana are massive. Sardinia has some of the oldest marble quarries on the planet.

I must admit, the cuts on this wall do not look ancient. This is Italy, (sardinians have a reputation)the red tape here is what is killing the economy, therefore it is common for 'illegal' quarrying, building etc. Do it the correct legal way and it would be cheaper to get rocks shipped in from Australia.

This country is so corrupt, the taX office told me 'not to bother' registering my business otherwise it will fail immediatley due to the massive taxes. Not uncommon to be taxed 200% of gross income for new businesses. Anyway, I digress.

This seems to be an old quarry that has maybe seen some illegal quarrying in recent times. The local town of pietra santa is a sculptures retreat. They use marble. This is lilley some sculpturer helping themselves to some marble, or some locals making a quick buck from the american tourists..
