Jaco de Beer's conversations

The farmer plowed it bit-by bit for a few years. Expanding it every year. No area was plowed over twice. This furrows is quite deep. The idea was to trap moisture and wind blowed seeds. . There is very little erosion or soil movement here, despite it being a windy area.

LOL< sorry for you DwayneA but little green men from Mars didn't do it, its true about the farmers

Yep. A friend farms on part of the pan. And the reason for the furrows is for moist retention and to trap wandering seeds.

Dankie Joco ek is bly ek kon jou van help wees

I tried to look for these walls at Makahane Hill but could not find it at the associated coordinates. Can you give me a better description of where exactly the hill is?

Take a look at this link, exploring the use of the serpent as a fertility symbol. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serpent_(symbolism)

Who built such intricate structures using tons and tons of stone and for what possible purpose? How old are these structures and have any of them been excavated by archaeologists? There are thousands of these kind of circular structures, many of them easily visible with Google Earth. If you have more information about these structures I would love to hear from you. You could also email me directly: jaco@bushmenstories.co.za.

Rings of stacked stones against and on top of the outcrop in the distance.

Note the stone circles across the valley just short of the distant hills.

This aardvark dug a deep hole into the side of the hill and all the red soil that came out is very fine, almost powdery.
