Terrain: Flat land beside a river.
Field condition: very overgrown with vegetation.
History: Land-owner is in his mid-50's and says the earth mounds have been there before he was born.
Shape of mounds: circles, rectangles and triangles. All have a roughly uniform current height of about 9cm or 10cm.
Spacing between mounds: NE direction: 2m-3m. NW direction: 1.75m
Detection results: many lengths of rusted ferrous cables approx 4mm in diameter, depth ranges from 5cm to 15cm. The whole place is full of those things. The majority of the cables ran from SW to NE. Shorter cable lengths did not have a specific consistent direction. After removal of cables, no other targets were detected.
Apex of triangles all point to the north-east.
Attached is a photo of the least-eroded triangle.
This is a mystery to me. Why would anyone make such shapes??Linkback:
