18 Ton Giant Stone Ball Found in Canadian Rock Quarry

This 36,650 pound “stone”, also known as Paul Bunyans Bowling Ball, or a Biggie stone “was found at Andersens’ Sand and Gravel, one mile southwest of “the bridge” and placed on site”-according to the placard underneath.

The stone has a circular hole of unknown use at the back and is bisected by a line located near the center of the stone.

The use for the stone is unknown, as are its age and manufacturers. The fact that it was found buried at a rock quarry would tend to show “age”.

    What is this for? The guy on the video says this is the largest of them and that they all have holes. Googling (quickly) didn’t find anything about these.
    I would love to know what they are made up off. I wonder if it is 2 halves joined together (with what?) or if the line is a groove that would let something tie back to whatever was in the hole.
    Is it a wrecking ball?
    Is it a missile to be used on some gigantic trebuchet?

    I love this site.
