Those stone cogs look like "fluted flower mold/muffin molds". They wouldn't have had metal cooking tins, so they could carve a shape into stone, then push that stone into clay molds, bake the clay, then they would have a bake clay muffin pan that could be used for cooking.

If this theory were correct, then there should be other shapes such as cactus, flowers and animals.

They appear to be the right size and the protrusions are always symmetrical, which would be necessary to put the center of mass in the middle so that the balls would roll in a straight line.

As far as I know, they've never been discovered in a tomb and the contents of several tombs have been cataloged. I think this is very telling since the intricate engraving on many suggests that they were valued objects. Perhaps they were possessions held by a family or a village rather than by an individual? This could very well fit with a hypothesis of the carved balls being used for a sport in my opinion, though it doesn't preclude some of the others either.


The balls coming from Scotland, I would assume an early version of golf.

I've seen similar artifacts to those cog type stones before, at my local museum here in Adelaide.
They look like heads from war clubs found in Papua New Guinea. these average 6 inches/15cm diameter
