Despite the difficulty in discerning the finished product of the giant designs from earth, archaeologists have recently announced that at least some of the great “works of old men” (as the Bedouin called them in 1927) of the Middle East are significantly older than the famous Nazca Lines of Peru. Archaeologists have come to the conclusion that at least two of the giant “wheels” from Wadi Al Qattafi and the Wisad Pools, in the Black Desert of Jordan are at least 8,500 years old – making them older then the famous Nazca Lines in Peru by about 6,000 years. The research, soon to be published in the journal Antiquity, demonstrates that at the time of the creation of these two wheels the climate of the Black Desert would have been very different, making life in the area easier.
Furthermore, Discovery News has reported that the recent study suggests that at least some of the geoglyphs are related to an astronomical interest by the ancient inhabitants.
The two wheels and the cluster make up just a small section of the famous “Works of Old Men” that cross the Arabia region – “from Syria across Jordan and Saudi Arabia to Yemen” according to the researchers from the current study. Some of the wheel-shaped structures are clustered closer together, while others appear to be solitary. Regarding the construction of the geoglyphs, it is evident that quality also differs from one structure to the next.
I didn't think to look for the URLs but there is a small handful of videos on the topic with excellent overhead photography of numerous sites.

Archaeologists call them the Nazca lines of Kazakhstan – hundreds of giant geoglyphs formed with earthen mounds and timber found stretched across the landscape in northern Kazakhstan. The Blythe Intaglios, often called America’s Nazca Lines, are a series of gigantic geoglyphs found fifteen miles north of Blythe California in the Colorado Desert.
The most well-known geoglyphs in the world are undoubtedly the Nazca Lines of coastal Peru. It doesn't take much to stimulate the human body's electro-magnetic circuitry, in fact a small change in the local environment is enough to create a change in awareness. The Valley of the Queens is a popular necropolis located on the south west of the village and temples of Medinet Habu. When checked, Shutterstock's safe search screens restricted content and excludes it from your search results. They also have shown that one cluster of the wheels may be linked to astronomical knowledge in the past, and some of the geoglyphs were likely related to burials, but the purpose of many of the designs remains uncertain.


Livescience reports that by using optically stimulated luminescence ( OSL), the archaeologists were able to show not only the date of creation of the two wheels, but also that one of them was repaired about 5,500 years ago. Archaeological evidence for their claim came in the form of "Charcoal from deciduous oak and tamarisk [a shrub that] were recovered from two hearths in one building dated to ca. Speaking of the two wheels in the Black Desert, Rollefson said that they “are simple in form and not very rigidly made, according to geometric standards. Yet, scattered across the globe are thousands of other geoglyphs that are equally as impressive.
Some of the circular structures contain two spokes that form a bar…The wheels are sometimes found on top of the kites. They contrast sharply with some other wheels that appear to have been set out with almost as much attention to detail as the Nazca Lines.” The precision of the other wheels, may have been due to the use of a long rope and a stake.
