Does this question get asked a lot? I kind of expected it to, but when I went looking for a forum where people document their "finds" and review each others, I couldn't find much, but came across this forum. Maybe someone can point me in a better direction..
Anyways, what do you think of this one? Natural, or otherwise?
That gothic-O looking "wheel" measures roughly 50 feet across and sits on top of a ridge, looks like there might be a dried up riverbed not too far from the site. I don't know how I would begin examining such a thing further.
thanks syzygy, I just came back to report an update!
If you look around the surrounding area of that placemark, you can find many more anomalies. Some rectangular, even.
But most confirming is that slightly farther away, but still in the region, I found this: SaudiArabia2.kmz (707 B)
It is the only other one I have found that bears that cross-in-circle shape to it. I found your post and looked through dozens of the ones that you had linked from KenGrok, which were mostly the circle-with-dot-inside shape. I could not find my own find in that catalog, however.
As you can see, this second one is more out in the open, obviously known to the public, even having many panaramio shots nearby... look at this one, we have a confirmation of what this particular type of shape looks like at ground level! I use an exclamation mark because I didn't expect to be an "archaeologist" when I woke up this morning!
congrats on confirmation! (now I think you might edit your kmz and post title) you have bumped into some old landmarks. I have scrolled some photos by panoramio user abul Mubashir, who wrote these below as titles for his photos taken by your second find:
Yes, I read through that KenGrok post and the kmz in your other post, that's where I looked at many of the stone monuments, thank you.
He describes them as neolithic, while this abul Mubashi seems to think of them as islamic (so only a couple thousand years old) What evidence do we have for either case? I think possibly abul is searching for islamic significance, so that's what he automatically believes he's found..
but perhaps it's true that these are meant as symbols.. I am reminded of the symbols for earth, and sun.. however these are medieval symbols, I think.
KitsuneFox: syzygy - posts I have made here do not receive much attention. I may do a detailed writeup of the now lost Edgemont Park in PA, one of the first electrified trolley parks in the world, but still debating. I'm missing 1 key bit of information.
