There are some old objects which made the experts doubt historical cannon and past civilizations. Some are so huge that, if used, only a tall person could do it. This is the case of the Minoan giant ancient axes.
What was the purpose of these? colossal weapons? Despite the fact that those who defend the traditional story, assure that they were produced only as symbolic ceremonial objectstheorists suggest they were used by true giants.
The mysterious giant axes of the Minoan culture
