A Scottish carved stone ball with unusual surface markings is described and analysed. Although
undoubtedly an original prehistoric artefact, it is an unprovenanced find and there is no absolute
certainty about the dating and character of its unique markings. Its enigmatic nature, with the
possibility of anthropomorphic depiction, presents an interpretative challenge for archaeologists
and art historians.
