Dotting the bleak, barren desert landscape, hundreds of kilometres from anywhere, were thousands upon thousands of elaborate stone wheels, measuring up to 70 metres wide and visible only from the sky. Flt Lt Percy Maitland documented the presence of the mysterious structures in a 1927 article for the archaeological journal Antiquity. They remained largely a secret until the 1970s when Dr David Kennedy, now a professor of classics and ancient history at the University of Western Australia, saw them in great numbers while studying old survey photographs from Jordan.
