Wall or Glyphics?

Traveling up to Glenn Lyon this week we took a route that passed this rather unusual wall near Kenmore Scotland. It is a wall Norman and I both knew about previously. It's infused with many strange designs and clever patterns which tempt one to think there is some sort of a story here. No one seems to know who built the wall but it is obviously a fairly new one. 

Many years from now when fragments of buried Cd's, DVDs and other relics of modern technology are being discovered in isolated parts of the world, a world very different from the one we know today, what will future experts conclude their significance to be? Will any technology still existing at that time able to read the mysterious remnants of our present day civilization?  Might archaeologists of the future better understand humanity by decoding simple stacks of stones such as these?
