(Newser)Peculiar, unexplained stone carvings created thousands of years ago and recently unearthed in Jerusalem are baffling archaeologists, reports AP. Israeli excavators discovered them in the floor of a newly discovered room under the oldest section of the city. The three mysterious "V" shapes are about 2 inches deep and 20 inches long.

"The markings are very strange, and very intriguing. I've never seen anything like them," says one of the dig's directors. The symbols were made at least 2,800 years ago. A few ideas being pondered by the dig's archaelogists: They were part of some ritual or maybe just supported a long-gone wooden structure.


Huh. Seems pretty obvious to me.



Now we just need to figure out how they did it...

I think the Babylonians used similar symbols in math....
