CIRCLES & TRIANGLES
Stone circles from prehistoric times are not uncommon in the deserts of North Africa and Arabia. In the western part of the Arabian Peninsula, the circle is often associated with a triangle that points in the direction of the circle like an arrowhead. In some places there is a connecting line between the circle and the triangle, which makes the whole thing look like a pendulum or a pendant. Why did people create such structures thousands of years ago? Were these stone circles tombs or places of power?
