The Lost Artifacts of Clover Hollow - Definite Proof of an Ancient Civilization or Just a Pile of Rocks?

(Read the article on one page)

Buried meticulously and ceremonially around the foundations of rock formations aligned across Clover Hollow Mountain are strange and creative portable artifacts that will stretch the imagination of the most hardened critics. They are carved with the same artistic and overall method as the permanent megalithic structures they are found buried beneath. These ‘mini-me’ portables are smaller pieces of art and come in all sizes from large and heavy rocks down to talisman or pocket-size. They are not tools or utilitarian in nature but more animistic, artistic, and culturally significant because of their ceremonial or religious connotations. The larger rocks are buried around the bases of the stone monuments and the smaller pieces are stuck in every nook and cranny suggesting they may have been used as offerings to the gods.

Left-Brain, Right-Brain

According to the theory of left-brain or right-brain dominance, each side of the human brain controls different types of thinking. Also, people are said to prefer one type of thinking over the other. For example, a person who is ‘left-brained’ is often said to be more logical, analytical, scientific, and objective. A person who is ‘right-brained’ is said to be more intuitive, thoughtful, spiritual, creative, and subjective. We seem to live in a world that is more left-brain-focused. Your left hemisphere is all about the  ‘I’ —the ego. Your left brain is always trying to figure something out, to draw conclusions. It is the side that worries. The left brain would like to be in control, and it wants to be right all of the time. Science and education tend to build the left-side and create a more dominant and hardier left-brain.

The right side of your brain isn’t concerned with being right, dominating the world, or making huge sums of money. Your right brain has no agenda. It isn’t looking to be right or ‘in charge.’ It simply enjoys being fully present and experiencing the moment, and it has the power to tap into deep levels of creativity and emotion. It’s about being intuitive, connected, in touch with your emotions, and fully present. It’s the doorway through which we connect with greater consciousness and are one with everything. Thinking outside the box really means thinking outside the left-brain. Art and creativity tend to build the more spiritual right-side of the brain.

Third Eye

The ‘third eye’ (also known as the inner eye) is a mystical and esoteric concept referring to an invisible eye which provides perception beyond ordinary sight. The third eye refers to the gate or bridge that leads to inner realms and spaces of higher consciousness. The third eye is often associated with religious visions, clairvoyance, the ability to observe chakras and auras, precognition, and out-of-body experiences. It is believed the key to understanding the evocation of imagination and creativity.

The Ajna chakra is located in the brain, directly behind the eyebrow center. Its activation site is at the eyebrow region, in the position of the "third eye."

In some traditions such as Hinduism, the third eye is said to be located around the middle of the forehead, slightly above the junction of the eyebrows. The center of the face some would say. In other traditions, as in Theosophy, it is believed to be connected with the pineal gland. According to this theory humans had in far ancient times an actual third eye in the back of the head with a physical and spiritual function. Over time, as humans evolved, this eye atrophied and sunk into what today is known as the pineal gland. Some believe the pineal gland is the bridge between the left brain and the right brain, but for most, the pineal gland has become dormant and calcified overtime from inactivity and the lack of spiritual stimulation. This has made us a predominantly left-brained society.

Offerings to the Gods

Clover Hollow Mountain is a wonderland for right-brainers. It is the land of imagination and creativity. Recently uncovered on Clover Hollow Mountain and in the infancy of discovery, might just be a lost ancient civilization of unknown origin, if you’re open to it. In addition to specific stone alignments and bizarre rock carvings of images within images, mini-megaliths have now been found buried around the bases of the rock formations scattered across the mountain. They exhibit the same artistic creativity as the megalithic structures they surround. There can be a no better example of a cultural influence than pieces of art offered to the gods in a religious or traditional ceremony. If we believe that these stones were carved by humans and placed ceremoniously around other carved megaliths, then we can easily jump to the conclusion that an ancient culture once existed here. Otherwise we have to believe everything we see on Clover Hollow Mountain is a natural coincidence and a freak of Mother Nature.


Regardless of left or right brain with enough work with tools.. It would be very easy for Paleolithic peoples to have carved stone.. Because they used so many natural materials it is hard to track but make no mistake they were very right brained.

Too many see things they want to see. You should always question everything but too few do. If the rocks shown above are artifacts then go out and find a rock, smash it with a hammer and show us...hey presto, a man made shape! That would be a fact but without any form or meaning. I mean get real, rocks are rocks, artifacts have purpose.

This summer, the University of Reading Archaeology Field School excavated one of the most extraordinary sites we have ever had the pleasure of investigating. The site is an Early Neolithic long barrow known as “Cat’s Brain” and is likely to date to around 3,800BC. It lies in the heart of the lush Vale of Pewsey in Wiltshire, UK, halfway between the iconic monuments of Stonehenge and Avebury.

Myths & Legends

Travis Fimmel as Ragnar Lothbrok in the History Channels Vikings Series.
Ragnar Lothbrok was a fearless hero of Norse lore who became widely known thanks to the History Channel’s hit series ‘Vikings.’ His historicity is subject to debate—as with King Arthur, for example—Ragnar is an amalgamation of a number of historical personages and minor characters of legend. So, the question is: Where does Ragnar the man end and the myth begin?

Ancient Places

The Siebenberg House is a house / museum located in the Old City of Jerusalem’s Jewish Quarter. The Siebenberg House is best-known for the archaeological finds that have been made beneath the present structure. The excavations under the house have revealed several archaeological layers, and allow one to obtain a glimpse of the city’s history.

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.
