Two Sand Deposits in the Plain of Troy

 Below is a map showing sand cover in the plain of Troy.  It also shows a few boreholes.  

The sand deposits in the plain are at the southern and northeastern extremes of the great mound in the plain.  

Both sand heaps are at critical water junctures.  The northeastern sand deposit fits into the spot where the stream of the Dumbreck meets the Kalifatli Asmak canal.  The southern deposit is at the spot where that same canal turns 90 degrees NE.   

Just a few thoughts about these.  They seem odd and unnatural to me, but what do I know?  Do flood plains have big sand deposits in them like this?  That is another question for earth scientists in the plain of Troy. I'd like to see a movie called Earth Scientists in the Plain of Troy.  Wouldn't you?  At this point I only know of one earth scientist who has worked in the plain of Troy, and that is the source of the map above, Ilhan Kayan.  
The elongated, southern sand deposit looks like it turns the Kalafatli Asmak.  I don't know if there is a sand dune there or just sandy soil.  The smaller, northern deposit might be meant to keep the stream of the Dumbreck to its northward side.  The village that formerly sat there is called Kumkale, or Kum Koy, which means Sand Village.  

Both sand deposits are associated with the artificial canal on the east side of the plain.  They are at opposite ends of the mound in the plain.  

The two sand deposits are two more anomalies in the plain of Troy that need explaining.
