Cult stone. The most mysterious cult stones are stones with holes. They can be found almost everywhere in the world. Scientists value the age of these stones even to many thousands of years. There are at least 30 hypotheses why people have made holes in the stones. It is believed that these stones are associated with the cult of the spirits of the dead, others believe that in the stones is pictured the position of the stars, that these have been sacrificial places and so on.
