Scientists have discovered a giant structure, weighing 60,000 tonnes and twice the size of Stonehenge, under the Sea of Galilee in Israel.
The International Journal of Nautical Archaeology reports that the "monumental stone structure" was cone-shaped and made of rough basalt.
Researcher Yitzhak Paz, of Ben-Gurion University's Israel Antiquity Authority, said the structure was found in 2003 during a sonar survey and divers had now been down to investigate.
He told the journal that the structure could be 4000 years old.
"The more logical possibility is that it belongs to the third millennium BC, because there are other megalithic phenomena close by," Dr Oaz said.
At a height of 10 metres and with a diameter of 70 metres, the structure appears to be a giant cairn, used in many parts of the world to mark burials.
"Close inspection by scuba diving revealed that the structure is made of basalt boulders up to a metre long with no apparent construction pattern," researchers said. "The boulders have natural faces with no signs of cutting or chiselling. Similarly, we did not find any sign of arrangement or walls that delineate this structure."

"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."- Samuel Adams
