Hugh Newman Explores the Stone Spheres of Costa Rica

This video is the first part of a small series on the megalithic spheres of Costa Rica. This one focuses on the Museums and Parks of San Jose. Hugh recently travelled to Costa Rica to explore the enigmatic stone spheres that have been discovered there over the last century. Ranging from the size of footballs to 9ft in diameter, and often perfectly carved, these spheres have left archaeologists and researchers baffled as to who built them, how and why. The opening scene of 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' showed Indiana Jones running down a tunnel to escape from one of them, but rather than a booby-trap set by the ancients, it has been revealed that these may have been more to do with geomancy, navigation, alignments and astronomy. Over the next few episodes, Hugh will look at other similar spheres that have been discovered in southern Costa Rica and around the world and give an historical overview of the strange 'marbles of the gods' (as David Hatcher Childress named them).
