i'm not disagreeing with you, i'm enjoying a rare rational exchange of ideas/opinions on ats
It is rare, ain't it? Must be a blue moon.
Anyway, I doubt that the Scottish stones date to the early mesolithic and I'm waay too lazy to go back and check.
People were drilling holes in shells and stones a looong time ago. Now that I think of it, if these were mace heads, they would be ceremonial or something because they wouldn't be as useful as ones that were drilled.
I like the fishing net weight idea too.
At any rate, they appear to be carved to accept cords lashed onto something, whatever that something might be.
