Gorbustan water storage

This man made hole, one of several, could have been for storing water before pottery. Nice to see it still working.

 

I haven't read anywhere whether this area was inhabited or whether it was just a cult or shamanistic centre, or a place where people camped when gathered there to drive wild horses off the escarpment (I read about such an encampment excavated in North America). Of course it could have been all these things at different times.
