Strange symbols suddenly appear on Alabama landscape

This was just posted on the Doo-Nanny website, fascinating news:

Strange symbols suddenly appear on Alabama landscape Seven abstract symbols that look like they should be on the surface of the Paracus Desert of Peru have suddenly appeared on satellite images of the rural landscape in Russell County, Alabama. There has been no publicity about these mystical designs until this article and no one has claimed responsibility. The strange symbols were discovered on January 30, 2014 by a researcher using remote sensing techniques to identify Creek Indian town sites. They cover approximately 230 acres immediately west of the Chattahoochee River and south of a Native American archaeological zone that is on a former horseshoe bend in the river. Some of the symbols appeared on a NASA image released in late 2013 by ERSI for use in GIS software. The most recent Google satellite image in January 2014 shows several new symbols, plus refinement of the original symbols. Russell County is in east central Alabama, across the Chattahoochee River from Columbus, GA. It abounds in archaeological sites associated with the Creek Indians, and probably was the location of a Chontal Maya trading center about a thousand years ago at an artificial riverine harbor across from present day Fort Benning.

Interesting, to say the least.

Probably a tie in with the mound builders(?)...I believe there are many civilization that have existed that archaeologists are not aware of that predate written history for lack of hard proof, such as a sustained living structures...wood building is by far the most easiest and available material to work with, unfortunately it deteriorates relatively quickly and leaves very little trace.

Yes very interesting, I had seen this article at examiner.com and had found it interesting indeed. They look like something right off the Atacama Desert

Yes, I later found the Examiner article and saw it was longer, more in-depth... this is in my area so perhaps I can learn more to report back on.
