High in the skies over Kazakhstan, space-age technology has revealed an ancient mystery on the ground.
Satellite pictures of a remote and treeless northern steppe reveal colossal earthworks â geometric figures of squares, crosses, lines and rings the size of several football fields, recognizable only from the air and the oldest estimated at 8,000 years old.
The largest, near a Neolithic settlement, is a giant square of 101 raised mounds, its opposite corners connected by a diagonal cross, covering more terrain than the Great Pyramid of Cheops. Another is a kind of three-limbed swastika, its arms ending in zigzags bent counterclockwise.
Described last year at an archaeology conference in Istanbul as unique and previously unstudied, the earthworks, in the Turgai region of northern Kazakhstan, number at least 260 â mounds, trenches and ramparts â arrayed in five basic shapes.
Spotted on Google Earth in 2007 by a Kazakh economist and archaeology enthusiast, Dmitriy Dey, the so-called Steppe Geoglyphs remain deeply puzzling and largely unknown to the outside world.

Looks like X marks the spot to me.
“Another is a kind of three-limbed swastika, its arms ending in zigzags bent counterclockwise.”
Well, if it’s a swastika, it must be destroyed. It might chase people around.
That is a brown paper bag. Inside is probably a very large bottle of Russian liquor.
Obviously a Confederate flag.
Yes, the Confederate Flag is clearly visible.
Mulder and Scully are on it.
[Yes, the Confederate Flag is clearly visible.]
Could someone color it to enhance the outline?
Got to ban it. It is an early prototype of the confederate battle flag.
***âAnother is a kind of three-limbed swastika,***
I believe the term is triskelion. but using the word Swastika gets the clicks.
Og bet Grog the square of the hypotenuse wasn’t equal to the sum of the square of the other two sides. Og won and civilization was set back 6,000 years.
personally I thought it looked like a Ninja Throwing Weapon, though I'm pretty sure they used something like that in a Star Trek Gladiator episode.
Obviously a Confederate flag. Plow it under, because Black Lies Matter.
Looks like a tri-rotor drone to me.
Whomever is living in the house in the middle of it had to have known it was there.
Maybe they were some kind of gigantic board game for mobile nomadic tribes.
