Archaeologists in the UK have unearthed a stone carving of a large phallus, which could have served a great luck appeal on the time it was chiseled 2,000 years in the past. 

The Roman-era millstone — a stone used for grinding grains, similar to wheat — was damaged when an excavation group initially found it and different millstones throughout fieldwork in 2017 and 2018, forward of a building undertaking on the A14 street, based on Oxford Archaeology, a personal archaeological firm within the U.Ok. Solely just lately, as soon as archaeologists studied the damaged millstone, did they understand it sported phallic imagery.
