Thousands Of 6,000-Year-Old Petroglyphs Discovered On Mountain In Mexico

petroglyphsAncient amazingness reported by the Daily Mail:

Symbols of fish and the sun, as well as intricate pattens of concentric circles have been found etched into stones on a remote mountain in Mexico.

Archeologists have discovered thousands of stunning stone-age carvings etched into rocks, which they believe that they were made by hunter-gatherers more than 6,000 years ago.

The etchings are known as petroglyphs and are generally patterns made up of concentric circles and wavy lines, although there are also more representative images of deer tracks. Scientists think the carvings could have been made as part of hunting initiation rites or even represent the stars.

So far, around 8,000 of the historic drawings have been found at the site, which measures two miles in radius and is the most important with so many of these ‘petrograbados’ in the Mexican state of Coahuila.

  1. Even though the secular age we live in has a different version of how we got to where we are today, it’s funny that the timeline for any kind of human advancement seems to be so closely aligned to that of the biblical one.

    Hence, the above artefacts absolutely had to have been made by hunter gatherers.

  2. More proof that most of the globe was explored first by trout fishermen.

  3. Thousands of glyphs, and you’ve given us one picture.

    Excellent job, Disinfo.
