Watching for Artifacts in the Woods and by Lakes

    When Robin (my daughter) took me out exploring around the quarry earlier this spring, we enjoyed looking for fossil remains in the rocks where we were climbing around. Most of Alabama was a shallow sea, many eons ago; so there are some interesting fossils to be seen if you are looking for them. There are also Indian artifacts that people find now and again. Robin has found some that were arrowheads, and one that was embedded into an old waterlogged part of a stump, looked like some kind of a hook, or maybe something that was used to throw a spear.

    I was just reading this amazing article, where they have found an ancient dagger that is apparently Chinese, and it was found along a creek bed in Georgia.

    There are other areas where writing and pictures that seem to be Asian have been found, leading some archaeologists to believe that the Chinese may have been here way before the Europeans arrived. As awesome as it would be to find an arrowhead; it would be even more exciting to find some artifact left from ancient Chinese explorers.

    Wow ! You can sure see that there were moose back in those early times, too . One of the smaller critter looks like it might possibly be a fox. The tail looks a little bushier than a cat would be. The curved tings could be boats or canoes with people in them. Some look like they have two "people" and one has three.
    Maybe they are leaving inforamtion about where the good hunting grounds are at ?

    I understand that the markings are sufficiently ancient that they are not sure what people put them there. One of the reasons why the region was turned into Provincial Park Land was to protect - it that were possible - he images seen.

    Twenty-eight aboriginal rock paintings known aspictographs have been identified in Quetico Provincial Park, including images of moose, canoes, turtles, and hunters. Considered sacred by many Lac La Croix First Nations members, most of the images are painted on flat cliff surfaces just above the water line, leading researchers to believe people created them while standing in canoes. The age of the pictographs is uncertain.

    The marvellous thing is there are peculiar markings of some sort all over the planet.

    Nice to see you online @m.abbass :)
