1. Did some googling, if this is the same circle the artice refers to, it may be a foundation.

The shift to cattle herding was accompanied by an extension of settlements far out into the plain, such as this site at Adrar Bouis in the Tenere desert. The three stone circles were possibly the foundations of storage bins. Such villages covered a considerable area and supported a large population, but building materials were insubstantial and left little trace.
