The New History of the Appalachian Mountains: Introducing the Lost Tribe of Clover Hollow
Ancient cultural influences detected at Clover Hollow in the Appalachian Mountains include strange and mystical stone alignments. Facing each other across Sinking Creek are two rock outcroppings that stand there like the piers of a gate. Carvings found on rock formations at the site seem to be very anthropomorphic in style and design, and ‘petroglyphs of the broad type,’ as an archaeologist has suggested. Could this be evidence for an ancient civilization of unknown origins deep in the Appalachian Mountains? These mountains are ten times older than for example the Andes, where numerous ancient cultures like Ollantaytambo, Saksayhuaman, and Machu Picchu, overlook a much newer Urubamba River Valley. Could it be true that one of the oldest civilizations on Earth once thrived in the Appalachian region of North America?
In his premier Talk to an Expert Chat, Ancient Origins guest author David Miller discusses the initial discovery of the Native American trail and the petroglyphs that surround it. Miller documented the initial discovery on film, and warns about a proposed pipeline and the potential disaster it would create for the site.
