Part 2:  Interviews with Scientists Studying Mysterious, Ancient Stone Circles in Middle East Visible Only from Air

“What the functions of the circles are, nobody has excavated one to my knowledge. .... It's really difficult to say what these circles meant to those people 9,000 years ago.”

- Gary O. Rollefson, Ph.D., Prof. of Anthropology,
Whitman College, Walla, Walla, Washington

 

Visible only from the air, a couple thousand of these mysterious patterns are in the black lava rocks of the huge Harrat ash-Shaam lava field that extends into Jordan. Hundreds more are in the lava rock north into Syria and south into Saudi Arabia. The strange patterns are as old as 9,000 years, but the reason for their creation is unknown. Aerial image by David D.

September 30, 2011  Perth, Western Australia and Walla Walla, Washington - Twenty-five million years ago there were repeated volcanic eruptions in what is now modern day Syria, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. Today there is continuous dark basalt for 100 miles or more in a region called Harrat Ash-shaam. Lots of the basalt has broken up over time into jagged, rocks. In that vast 100 miles of black lava rock has emerged an archaeological mystery to rival the enigma on the Plains of Nazca in Peru. Thousands of circular patterns, many with spokes like a wheel, are found throughout the Harrat Ash-shaam.
