The Fuente Magna Bowl is one of the most controversial artifacts in South America. It is a stone bowl, very similar to container for making libations, baptism or for purification ceremonies. It was found by villager near Lake Titicaca. The engravings on the bowl are Sumerian. Inside of the bowl was engraved with words that looks like cuneiform signs. Photos of inside were sent to linguistic around the world. They declared, without any doubt, that the inside script is Sumerian cuneiform. Clyde Winters was able to completely translate the content of the interior of the bowl.

After he translated it, it became more interesting for two reasons. Firstly, these panels have proto-Sumerian symbols mixed with the cuneiform symbols. Secondly, the wedges of the Fuente cuneiform signs are pointing rightward, while on the most Sumerian cuneiform texts is leftward.  The Fuente Magna Bowl is one of the most important archaeological discoveries that confirms the link between Mesopotamic and Mesoamerican cultures, stating that Sumerians settled in Bolivia 5000-4000 years ago.

Around 3ooo round stones can be found in Costa Rica, located on the Diquis Delta and on the Isla del Caño. These spheres range in size from a few centimeters to over 2 meters (6.6 ft) in diameter, and weight up to 15 tons!  The spheres were first time discovered in the 1930s. There are numerous myths surrounding, such as they cane from Atlantis, or they were made like this by nature. It has been claimed, that the spheres are perfect, or near perfect roundness. These spheres are sculpted from gabbro. Research was lead by Joseph Davidovits of the Geopolymer Institute in France to support one of the possible theories – some native inhabitants had access to a potion, which was able to soften the rock. But because of the gabbro, this was not possible, because it is not possible.
