Ancient Middle Eastern Stone Structures Revealed By Google Earth
Jen Thomas

In the 1920s, Royal Air Force pilots flying airmail routes from
Cairo to Baghdad noticed something bizarre in the lava fields of
Syria, eastern Jordan and Saudi Arabia.

Dotting the bleak, barren desert landscape, hundreds of
kilometres from anywhere, were thousands upon thousands of
elaborate stone wheels, measuring up to 70 metres wide and
visible only from the sky.

Flt Lt Percy Maitland documented the presence of the mysterious
structures in a 1927 article for the archaeological journal

They remained largely a secret until the 1970s when Dr David
Kennedy, now a professor of classics and ancient history at the
University of Western Australia, saw them in great numbers while
studying old survey photographs from Jordan.
