Elements of the oldest myths have survived in ancient songs (Regilaul). The simplest song barely noticed: a bird laid three eggs and began to arrange its cubs - one became the sun, one became the moon and one became the earth. The origin of these Estonian myths is suspected in the 1st millennium BC. Petroglyphs of the region, showing egg-laying birds, are interpreted as mythological figures and are dated in the 3rd Millennium BC.
