Mysterious Ancient Stone 'gates' Discovered On Google Earth by sherifastro: 12:26 pm On 10 Oct
Mysterious ancient stone 'gates' discovered on Google Earth

An Australian archaeologist has used Google Earth to uncover hundreds of huge, mysterious stone structures in Saudi Arabia. David Kennedy has documented almost 400 of the stone structures dating back thousands of years, with a few of these wall-like formations sitting on top of old lava domes - the remains of volcanic lava flows.

Kennedy set up the Aerial Photographic Archive for Archaeology in the Middle East - an initiative to map the area that now has more than 140,000 aerial images, Metro UK reports. Through the development of Google Earth, he has been able to expand the database and use it to find the previously undiscovered stone structures.

His analysis, which will appear in the forthcoming issue of Arabian Archaeology and Epigraphy, indicates the structures are known to the Bedouin as “Works of the Old Men”. The structures bare a striking resemblance to others found in the Middle East that are known as "gates". Their purpose is unknown but these new gates are unlike anything else previously found.
