Archeologists Find Mysterious 4200-Year-Old Circles in Murmansk Region

An earlier unknown monument of archeology has been discovered on Peninsula Sredniy, Murmansk Region.
      
      Workers of the Arctic Technologies company carrying out geological exploration occasionally found strange circles of stones and then the object was examined by archeologists.
      
      Archeologists were amazed at strange constructions of boulders - these are well distinguishable stone-laid circles six meters in diameter with a crosswise masonry inside.
      
      Recently obtained data of radio carbon analysis have confirmed the antiquity of the construction: it was created about 4200 years ago. It is not the oldest date for the area of Sredniy and Rybatsky Peninsulas, though. There are ancient settlements there, which are 10100 years.
      
      However, very unusual is the form of these constructions, which makes it impossible to speak definitely about their function. Only excavations can answer the question, if those were household, dwelling or cult constructions of ancient inhabitants of the Arctic.
