Following John's "where is this" thread, I thought I'd put up a teaser for you guys. Hint: These round buildings are among the oldest human structures, dating from 7,500 to 10,000 years ago.

Good one Gale! These structures are thought to be tombs....not exactly a good place for a birth!

Ok I am stumped. To my knowledge the American continents don't have any thing that old. Even the Anastasie supposedly came over the land bridge.

So now I am thinking....Isreal, or Egypt.

Matt is correct. Egypt, sourthern Sinai to be exact. These are Nawamis, structures built by neo-lithic peoples as tombs (it is believed). The only light inside the structure comes from the small doors which all point to the west.
