    Magic. They were tools for magic. But all tools for magic become redundant cultural relics once you learn real magic. You might need tarot for study but you don’t need it for real magic. Same goes for these Roman artifacts.

      Lol this is not true. To perform real magic you need a conduit. Why do you think precious metals are precious?

      Imagine when the find the first Fleshlight a thousand years from now. We think they put the batteries in the hole down the center and we think somehow it made the silicone glow. We think they used them in ancient religious rituals. Because everything is used in ancient religious rituals as a rule of thumb of archeology. Archeology is such total bullshit. For all we know Stonehenge was the beer pavillion at the 2917BC World's Fair.

        I think you severely underestimate the demands demons make. Everything seems like it was centered around religious rituals because a demon's thirst is never quenched. Yet another reason why we needed Christ when we did. Our collective abandonment of the demons and return to the one True God sapped them of power. For proof of this see how much better life has been in Europe compared to India.

            Pot, meet kettle.

            As a religion i can admire christianity. The fundamental insistence on bearing the cross and repenting from sin, really a kind of worship focused on people's relationships with each other, it's a beautiful thing. But then christian society also produces total gays like this. Do you really believe that your pagan ancestors considered racism at all? A year in the life: survive and hunt through an absolutely brutal winter; plant crops; say goodbye to the 3 of 9 of your children that look like they'll survive into adulthood so you can go raid other tribes with the boys; take other people's shit all summer, focus on surviving; come back and harvest with the 2 of 9 children remaining; feast, preserving the rest that you can; go back out hunting game with your son and hope a bear doesn't kill you both.

            Does it sound like you would fit in with the society that produced your pagan ancestors? At worst, assuming you survived to adulthood, you would be exiled and killed by exposure. At best they would end your suffering fast, tie you to a tree and let your blood sate the mother.

            I admire christianity, I really do, but what am I supposed to make of a society and a religion that churns out absolute pathetic twats like this that turn around and call someone else a cuck?

          tbf the xtians burned a lot of knowledge and tried to bury their own esoteric beginnings
          I wish I could know more (for sure) about my old Irish family. Our records indicate the family likely would have been involved in druid business, if not druids themselves.

          But that was a long time ago, and the oral histories got lost. Anything written was destroyed or lost

    Interesting enough object because clearly there are several 100 of those found.
    Object for the banned by TPTB technology - the Sound.

    Looks like a camertone or Tuning fork with numerous wave lengths.
    Here's how I'd imagine it to work.
    You put it on a horizontal plane, say stone based.
    And then you move it around and rotate. Until you get a sound or a tune.

    All were found in colder regions and they figured out that it was a device to make gloves, they even made a pair in the documentary about "odd" finds...saw it a few months ago...cant remember name of doc though.

      For making gloves.

      This is wrong. Similar modern objects can be used to make gloves, but that is 100% not what these ones were for, as their design is incompatible with Roman craft techniques
      just a coincidental resemblance

      No. Too early.

      Maybe, this is closer to the likely answer.
      These were somewhat rare, associated with the northwestern part of the empire and are affiliated with military encampments. They could be something to do with counting/money, a portfolio piece as you suggest, or serve as another kind of tool.
      My favorite hypothesis is they were a range finding tool for artillery. The Romans loved their light catapults and ballistae, especially when and where these tend to be found. I'm not 100% on this hypothesis but it's testable.

        Another thought going with rangefinding. They could be for laying out building and fortification locations, similar to how we use a surveyor's transit now.

    Notice that Icosohedra have also been found at these sites, and read the Timaeus of Plato. Then marvel that the various "theories" the media highlights never touch on this.

    They were used to knit or stitch or weave up glove fingers out of tough materials for battle. (See the different sized holes) People still use them same ones (but made out of plastic or nylon) for making glove fingers today.
    After they were done making gloves for everyone, they would fill them up with Roman fire putty and launch at enemies
