The Egyptian pyramids are considered to be the oldest in the world, but some experts claim that thousands of rock-cut structures in Saudi Arabia are older than them. Their average age is stated to be 7000 years, which makes them the most ancient. According to a report published in the ‘Antiquity’ journal, these structures are spread in northwestern Saudi Arabia. It has been claimed that their age was considered earlier, they are actually older than that. If so, they are older than the Pyramids and the mysterious Stonehenge stones of Britain.

Thousands of one size structures

According to research, these structures must have belonged to a community that celebrates animals. Pictures of cattle herds have been found on these. It is believed that these cattle must have been important for the people of the area. Study researcher and University of Australia archaeologist Melissa Kennedy has told that these thousands of structures have been found in the area of ​​two million square kilometers and all of them are in the same size. Therefore, all of them may have been created under the same assumption.

How was the contact done?

These structures have two thick ends connected by two or more walls that resemble courtyards. They range in length from 20 to 600 meters. Lead researcher Hugh Thomas says that over the area they are spread over, they would have been approached on a large scale to build them. According to research, small structures were built on the walls of rocks with a height of a few meters, whose heads were thick. It may be that something like a procession originates from one side of them.

Why were so many structures built?

Their bases looked circular, semicircular which were outside the main gate. Some structures also had pillars, standing stones. It is not yet clear why such complex structures were created. In one of these, horns and bones of wild and domesticated animals were found. They included cattle and sheep. They must have been around 5000 BC.
