“A mysterious wooden idol found in a Russian peat bog has been dated to 11,000 years ago – and contains a code no one can decipher.

The Shigir Idol is twice as old as the Pyramids and Stonehenge – and is by far the oldest wooden structure in the world.
Even more mysteriously, it is covered in what experts describe as ‘encrypted code’ – a message from a lost civilisation.

Russian experts think that the strange carvings may contain a belief system, the equivalent of the Bible’s Genesis.

The statue had been dated as being 9,500 years old, after its discovery in a peat bog 125 years ago.

But new research in Mannheim, Germany used Accelerated Mass Spectrometry n small fragments of the sculpture, and found it is at least 11,000 years old.
