None of the circles excavated (four out of an estimated 20) are more than 30
metres across. T-shaped pillars like the rest, two five-metre stones tower at
least a metre above their peers. What makes them remarkable are their carved
reliefs of boars, foxes, lions, birds, snakes and scorpions, and their age.
Dated at around 9,500BC, these stones are 5,500 years older than the first
cities of Mesopotamia, and 7,000 years older than Stonehenge.
All this to be taken with a grain of piquant salt!!!
