These kilns were used in Death Valley to make charcoal. Wood was gathered, paked into the kilns and burned into charcoal.
The charcoal was used to smelt silver/gold from ore.
Because of the weather in Death Valley, these kilns are the best preserved in the US.
This is a picture of the inside of the kiln.
