After sharing information about the “findings”, academic and ideological disputes arose. The age and the meanings of the engravings were discussed. It was believed that the stones were a mark of the pagan times of Slavdom. However, they are only quern-stones with an unknown chronology, and the engravings are a falsification from 150 years ago, inspired by desire to embellish the history of the Slavs and give them written tradition. At the same time, similar falsifications of pseudo Slavonic objects covered with runes emerged.
The Mikorzyn stones are in Kraków since the “Exhibition of antiquity and relics of art” organised in 1858-1859.
