    A Swedish man, Olof Ohman, was farming on his land when he came across a 202-pound rock slab that had strange writing on it.

There has been a drawn-out debate on the stone's authenticity, with a scholarly consensus that classifies it as a hoax and the community which is convinced that it is authentic.
