93 Miles long and 3 feet high?

Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

For a clue look @ who those people were-pastoralists - those who's lives revolve around herding animals.

Yes, but that would be one big corral, Sam.

Maybe it was an early WPA project?

Not a corral but a fence to stop semi domesticated herds from wandering in the 'wrong' direction.

Could be but it seems like that should be the herder's job. That just seems like a tremendous undertaking to keep sheep from shitting on the wrong side of a border.

From a layman's perch I would question the effectiveness of a three foot tall barrier keeping in almost any domestic animal. I would look toward a long standing boundary that was important but would allow animals to cross it as needed. Maybe some type of spiritual designation?

More likely either a territorial designation or maybe something to cause a herd of animals to change their direction of travel while fleeing humans who hunt them... Sort of a crude, one sided chute to direct animals toward hidden hunters???

Lots of clans/tribes put up markers...almost totems, if you would to denote their territory. Building a continuous wall seems like a lot of work.

Sheep in particular were a lot smaller back then.

There's probably a great joke there, Sam, but I'm going to let it slide.
