Forty feet below the surface of Lake Michigan in Grand Traverse Bay, a mysterious pattern of stones can be seen rising from an otherwise sandy half-mile of lake floor.

Likely the stones are a natural feature. But the possibility they are not has piqued the interest of archeologists, native tribes and state officials since underwater archeologist Mark Holley found the site in 2007 during a survey of the lake bottom.

A circle of stones is hardly a civilisation, but...
If the lake bottom is that featureless, and the water that clear, I'd love to be in on that survey.

Not a lot of paleo features around...especially with artwork.

Self edit to say good catch. Starred and flagged.

There was another thread on the Lake Michigan Stone Circle here. There are some good links in the posts.

It seems like the story keeps getting hauled up to fill space on news sites. This site is an example of just repeating information from the past without adding more information. If you google " Lake Michigan Stone Circle Mastodon" you'll find quite a few links to the subject. Depending on your perspective, there are many more 'speculative' sites than archaeological sites on the subject

Not really a stone henge more like a collection of lumps and stones.

Yeah. It looks like a foundation for a flower bed.

Or an ancient sun dial.
