Hi Prometheus,

Interesting post, as the Doc has pointed out the striations are the result of Glacial movements , the area around Namibia seems to have had Glacias traveling in different directions , maybe an indication of different epochs , the border of these events can clearly be seen , see pics below.





On the stone circles, the animal enclosure hypothesis seems plausible for some sort of tribal life as the imperative would be to eat , and given that baren type of landscape i doubt if growing crops would be their only way to survive , so for now my logic leans towards animal enclosure, and maybe holding water in those central circles.
I could be wrong of course , and they do remind me of some ancient stone sites of Malta, and Gobekli Tepi, in Turkey.
