The Dashka stone, also known as Chandar Slab has been considered to be one of the most controversial discoveries in Russia. The age of ancient stone, discovered in 1999 by a Russian professor near the village of Chandar in the South Urals, was estimated to be 120 million years old. Besides, the inscription on the stone showed an ancient map in an unknown language.

A team of archaeologists from the Bashkir State University discovered the Dashka stone on July 21, 1999, in the Urals mountains, Russia. Alexander Chuvyrov, a professor of mathematics and physics at Bashkir State University, led the team in the discovery.
Chuvyrov accidentally stumbled upon the information about 200 white stone slabs that had been found by a Russian expedition in Bashkiria in the 18th century in the archives of the city of Ufa. In 1924, the mysterious stones were mentioned in the “List of Monuments of Nature, Culture and History of the Bashkir Republic.”
Chuvyrov began his expedition in 1995 and started looking for slabs on a helicopter, but by chance, he came to know about that slab from one local who had it in his yard. The stone was 148 cm high and 106 cm wide. Researchers who analyzed the stone tablet were surprised to find that the strange lines on the stone were actually a highly accurate map of one of the specific areas of the Ural mountains. The map was at a scale of 1: 1.1 km.
The stone was named “Dashka” in honor of the granddaughter of Alexander Chuvyrov. Later, it was known as the “Map of the Creator.”
Researchers from Bashkir estimated that the stone was 100 to 500 million years old. They made this conclusion on the behalf of the ancient seashells found in the stone. The first shell was at least 500 million years old, and the second one was 120 million years old, so the age of the stone is probably between them.
The 3D map on the surface of the stone was precisely similar to the modern computerized maps used by the military.
Chuvyrov said: “At first sight, I understood that was not a simple stone piece. But a real map, and not a simple map, but a three-dimensional. You can see it yourself.”
The Dashka stone map mentioned not only the surrounding area of the Ural mountains but also several dams, 12,000 km of irrigation canals and other objects that change the landscape. Another exciting thing was that hieroglyphs written on the stone were originally considered Chinese, but it was not true.
With the help of Chinese and Russian experts, it was found out that the ancient map also mentioned rivers: Belya, Ufimka, Sutolka.
According to the Wisconsin Historical Society, such a map allegedly could only have been created from the sky, and it had only one purpose: navigation. Did the ancient Ural civilization use flying objects to create the map?
Another theory suggests that there are at least 300 fragments that together form a 3D map of the Earth, and the Dashka stone is just one of them.
