Oldest Dated Petroglyphs

Breaking news today is the discovery of the oldest dated petroglyphs found in western Nevada by a Colorado Boulder Researcher.  The petroglyphs may date anywhere from 10,500 to 14,800 years ago.  The art work showed designs such as chain-like symbols.

It will be interesting to see what the researchers conclude at the end of this excavation.  Before, this discovery the oldest petroglyph was found North into Oregon where there were fossilized remains of human occupation that were found.  I look forward to reading more of the Researcher’s information and finding out more information about the past environment this ancient people may have experienced.

I posted the link just in case anyone is interested in the research.  It is a fascinating read and worth the time to check out!
