In addition to the 11 photographed circles, researchers have identified another similar circle in Jordan, which appears to have been only partially completed, Kennedy noted. Old satellite imagery also reveals two circles, one in Jordan and another in Syria, which have both been destroyed. The circle in Syria was destroyed within the last decade and the one in Jordan a few decades ago. A separate research team, from Durham University, investigated the Syria circle before it was completely gone. While there are many smaller stone circles in the Middle East, what makes these 11 Big Circles stand out is their large size and ancient age, Kennedy said.

Archaeologists are always baffled.

(A nation cannot stand in the absence of religious principle.)
The Big Circles (as archaeologists call them) were built with low stone walls that are no more than a few feet high.
Sounds like the foundations for those inflatable domes used for driving ranges. Perhaps they should look for ancient golf balls...

A fence a few feet high, near “kites” used in slaughter. Water usually nearby. I am not an archaeologist, but I’ll suggest a sheep farm.

It seems unlikely that they were originally used as corrals, as the walls were no more than a few feet high, the circles contain no structures that would have helped maintain an animal herd

Perhaps the area was cleared for plowing and agriculture during a wetter climate cycle.

(Loose Lips, Sink Ships)
While the article does not say which country the circle is located in, the image on the site shows a nearby river and perhaps the Med in the background.
Likely these were built by the pre-Egyptian dynasty “Libyans” who built similar Megalithic structures as far north as the UK (Stonehenge) - all close to water. Most of those date to around 3,500 BC or shortly after.
These same people are postulated to have been the builders of the Giza complex. However, proving it would mean digging down through hundreds of feet in the north and west of the Nile River Delta, the territory the “Libyans” or Westerners controlled at the time.
I think I read there are some examples of their writing, but there is no way to translate it yet.
Most archeologists would likely say they built most of these structures as a calendar, solar observation points, etc. However, these are just theories. Which may be akin to saying the Giza pyramids were built as Pharaohs tombs ... which are neither tombs nor built by ancient dynastic Egyptians.
The past is not only stranger than we think, but stranger than we can imagine ...

Maybe they were part of “stone age” people’s version of “circle the wagons” as a form of defensive

The answer is obvious. Just as the natives in New Guinea built replicas of airplanes as part of the cargo cult, beseeching the return of the Gods in their flying vehicles with so much in the way of goodies, these huge circles were putative landing sites for the mother ships.
The natives were trying to lure the Ancient Aliens back to Earth.
(Well, its as good a theory as any)
