Very interesting, my first impression is that they are a type of kraal as noted above h;woever in the body of document at the first link:
The researchers have noted that the wheels are often found on top of kites, which date as far back as 9,000 years, but never vice versa. "That
suggests that wheels are more recent than the kites," Kennedy said.
Insufficient information from the source but I'll speculate a bit.
I'd say they are man made disturbances of the ground the purpose of which has changed over time; with the wiping out - and drying out of the area
wild game ceased to be important and domesticate animals came into use and some may have been used for tombs. Good place for some excavation after a
geophysical study and a LSRS (Large scale regional survey) probably using a mix of intensive survey and extensive survey, would need a good
ethnographic study too.
I wonder what rock art one might find - hey Byrd this might be up your alley.
Oh this type of story use to be called a dangle - a public notice to allow the search for funding to begin before any published studies have occurred
. I would suspect that a European team may have looked a these in the late 19th century when Europeans; especially the French, Germans and Swiss were
all over this region.
Ah the search for a musty report amongst volumes of research written in high German....yetch.
