Lost City found in Kalahari Desert?
Exposing the Truth ^ | May 8, 2013 | posted by clearsteam

Posted on 05/11/2013 5:06:17 PM PDT by SunkenCiv

Wind erosion has lead to an incredible discovery through google maps.

Comparable to the Nasca Lines in size, and even more impressive in intricacy, a potential massive lost city or site has been revealed in an area of the “verneukpan” an inhospitable area of salt flats in southern Africa .

For over a year now, a young determined Dutchman has been using Google earth to map the world’s ancient sites, very much a crowd-sourced project, with over 900 place markers so far of sites that are known about and links to Wikipedia articles about them.

Archeomaps is the brainchild of Jaimy Visser, who posted this image yesterday on his facebook page after Shaun Kirwen brought it to his attention.

Jaimy had found that in his research he was finding many unexplained circular structures around the globe and started project “Esthar” to try and map these as well, in the process he has found huge areas of desert with evidence of similar ancient civilizations around the globe though none quite as striking as these which bear resemblance to carvings at Knowth, Newgrange, Malta and various other prehistorical sites.

The complex in the image is over five square miles, with less striking patterns spread over around twenty square miles at least.

If they had a street, there’d be another Starbucks right across it.

Those spirals are streets?

Did their camels all have a left side limp?

But to get back they would have spiraled the opposite direction.

This is odd.

A poster writes:

We visited that place last year on a boys weekend and that is not the correct explanation.

The farmer made that drenches using donkeys tied to a rope that is tied to a short post in the ground. The reason for that is to loosen the surface so that plants can start growing again.

It’s a common technological response to long-term drought / dessication, hence it’s found in currently uninhabited desert lands. :’)

That’s very intriguing.

During my sheltered existence I’ve not seen anything quite like it.

Where can I read about it?

(Although I still think the crooked camels idea is more fun.)

Hehe – people, people – THIS IS NOT A LOST CITY!!
I live in Cape Town – South Africa and belong to a group of Adventure Riders in SA. One of our members was involved in creating these “irrigation/plowing circles” to assist with water retention…………
We have actual pictures of the chap and his plough doing the work…………..

This is surely the best laugh I’ve had in a long time…………… next our esteemed scientists will say we come from Mars!

I’m a little skeptical this could have been an inhabited city. It would be really hard to sustain a city that large in this desert, even if conditions weren’t quite as harsh.
