New research has shed light on the age and functions of a mysterious 7,000-year old roundel, a Neolithic circular place of worship that was only found in 2015.

Located in Nowe Objezierze near Cedynia, north-western Poland the structure was first discovered by paraglider Norbert Pająk in 2015. Independently of his finding, the remains of the structure were spotted in June 2016 by archaeologist Marcin Dziewanowski, who was browsing satellite imagery available on Google Maps.

From above, the contours of the enclosure were so clear that they looked like the crop circles made by aliens in science fiction movies.

Since 2017, scientists from Gdańsk, Szczecin, Warsaw and Poznań have been conducting research in the area. By using carbon dating researchers from Szczecin University discovered it was built around 4800 BC and was in use for 200-250 years. The circular structure has a diameter of 110 meters and consists of four ditches and three palisades, and had three gates leading to the center.
