Archaeologists are examining huge wheel patterns stretching from Syria to Saudi Arabia supposedly dating from over 2,000 years ago.
The archaeologist David Kennedy and his research team say they still can’t find the reason behind the existence of these “geoglyphs”. The odd circular patterns can’t be really seen while standing on the ground. However, their details stand out once they are seen from the air. The first person to ever record them was Lt. Percy Maitland, a RAF pilot, who is thought to be their discoverer. Ever since that the strange patterns have been photographed numerous times by many pilots.
Some of these figures include pendants, kites and other shapes. Some researchers associate them with burial ceremonies, others believe they have a religious meaning. Nobody can tell the purpose behind their creation, who actually made them and why their details can be distinguished only from the bird’s point of view.
David Kennedy says it’s impossible to really grasp their meaning and their origin without any records or evidence available.
