A field of wheat in a small German town is dotted with circular rows of wooden posts. It looks like some sort of peculiar pasture, but the enclosure is actually a Neolithic structure.
The Goseck Circle (also called the Goseck Sun Observatory) dates from the fifth millennium BC. It was created around 4900 BC and was used up until 4700 BC. When archaeologists excavated the site, they discovered bovine skulls and human skeletons, suggesting it was a spot for some sort of ritualistic burial or sacrifice.
