During the U.S. 'dustbowl days' of the 1920's and 30's, there were one story abandoned farmhouses that were completely covered by sand/dust after the passage of several months. Or view the images from the invasion of Iraq last year, when the forces had to stop their advance due to a major sandstorm. After the storm passed, the vehicles were 'duned up' with sand drifts of 2 to 3 feet against them, after only a couple of days of sanstorm. As I said in the other post, I believe that the enclosure being filled with in a decade is quite reasonable.
You may be more concerned about current weathering, and preserving the monument, but we all have a great interest in knowing how old/who built it; if older than orthodox claims, then there is a re-writing of history to be done. This, I think, is the cause of the partisanship in this debate; both alternative and orthidox camps have staked positions, with the orthodox having, IMO, the greatest vested interest in STATUS QUO. I know there are relatively open minds on both sides, but the tendency is toward partisanship. Ugh!
