Thinking about the two-tracks question:
As many horse-drawn vehicles travelled along the same route, if the wheels were grinding into the ground along a continuous line, but the horses' hooves where falling in a more random pattern, would the grass under the horses' path be more likely to survive than the grass under the wheels' path??
Just a thought. Hope it made sense.
Along the lines of the geology topic, this question reminds me of the stuff I had to read about "cultural formation processes" when I was studying Archaeology as an undergrad....
