Youtube . . . The Petroglyphs of the Georgia Gold Belt – Part Two
In Part Two the series focuses on the petroglyphic boulders that were carved next to locations where major trade paths crossed rivers, major creeks or mountain gaps. These petroglyphic boulders have some shared characteristics in that most are shaped like elongated potatoes and are about 8 to 11 feet long. However, they also displayed distinctly different artistic traditions from different parts of the planet. One can easily distinguish between the petroglyphs of Ireland/Scotland, southern Scandinavia, Central America, the Itza Maya and the Apalache Creeks of the Early Colonial Period. The Microsoft software has been disinfected now, so I was able to use another one of its “bells and whistles” . . . an animated laser pointer.
