Identifying Petroglyph

Hi Everyone, 

We've been contacted by a property owner in California who has found petroglyphs carved into rock on their land. Although difficult to see on the photograph, there are clear etch marks indicating that the images are man-made, but erosion and pigmentation indicates it was done a very long time ago. 

Anyone out there with expertise in identifying petroglyphs who can help identify the time period/culture they may belong to? Even better, if there is someone in the California area that is able to go to the property and take a look please let us know.

Our Mission

At Ancient Origins, we believe that one of the most important fields of knowledge we can pursue as human beings is our beginnings. And while some people may seem content with the story as it stands, our view is that there exists countless mysteries, scientific anomalies and surprising artifacts that have yet to be discovered and explained.

The goal of Ancient Origins is to highlight recent archaeological discoveries, peer-reviewed academic research and evidence, as well as offering alternative viewpoints and explanations of science, archaeology, mythology, religion and history around the globe.

We’re the only Pop Archaeology site combining scientific research with out-of-the-box perspectives.

By bringing together top experts and authors, this archaeology website explores lost civilizations, examines sacred writings, tours ancient places, investigates ancient discoveries and questions mysterious happenings. Our open community is dedicated to digging into the origins of our species on planet earth, and question wherever the discoveries might take us. We seek to retell the story of our beginnings.
