In our quest to understand the ancient world, historians and explorers circumnavigate the globe searching for that which has yet to be discovered. In some instances, objects are discovered which raise more questions than they give answers. Such items, over time, often develop a cult-like following of people who theorize on what these objects were used for. The scientific community extensively tests these mysterious items, adding to the list of theories. In most instances, the answers never reveal themselves and the items remain a mystery. Yet, however strange, however perplexing, and however remote any chance of discovering the real reasons exist, we find ourselves drawn to these items. Perhaps as it was in the days of old, “it’s not the kill, but the thrill of the chase,” which keeps us going.
