ca 1936 __ Chinese stone discs of Bayan-Kara-Ula
Comment : It all began in 1937-1938, in the mountains of Baian-Kara-Ula, the remote, uninviting slopes located on the border that divides China and Tibet. An archaeological expedition, led by the highly respected Chi Pu Tei, discovered a number of unique cave burial sites. What he and his team found in these previously unknown caves would soon be considered as something highly unusual. The team then made what was called "the most incredible discovery of all." Half buried in the dirt floor of each cave they found unusual disks, originally referred to as "odd stone disks" and described as "obviously fashioned by the hand of an intelligent creature." These disks were approximately nine inches in diameter and three-quarters of an inch thick. In the exact center was a perfectly round 3/4 inch hole, and etched into its face was a fine groove spiraling out from the center to the rim, making the disk look like some kind of "primitive phonograph record." One of the best preserved disks was dated to between 10,000 and 12,000 years BC old, older by far than even the oldest estimates of the age of the great pyramids of Egypt. This was incredible news, but what was to come would be even more remarkable. A final total of 716 such plates were found, and each held its own mystery. The grooves, upon closer inspection, were not grooves at all, but a continuous line of an unknown writing!. (Compiled from various sources)
French comment : En 1936, des fouilles archéologiques menées à la frontière de la Chine et du Tibet dans le massif montagneux de Bayan Kara-Ula ont mis à jour 716 disques de pierre de 30 à 50 cm de diamètre. Ces disques percés au milieu ressemblent à des disques modernes de phonographes. Ils sont gravés d'un sillon se déroulant en spirale des bords au centre. Leur ancienneté est estimée à 12.000 ans environ et ils contiennent des traces de métal. Le philologue Vjatscheslav Zaitsev a rapporté que cela pourrait être une forme d'écriture et que ces disques vibraient dans certaines conditions d'expériences comme s'ils portaient une charge électrique. Le rapport intégral concernant ces disques est conservé dans les Archives Historiques de Taipeh (Taïwan) et à l'Académie de Pékin. (tyron29.kazeo.com)
