I have a book called Weird Pennsylvania. I found a couple things in this book that facinated me. One is the Tripp Lake Rock Piles and the other is
The Cairns of Suquehanna County. Both of these are in Susquehanna county in two different locations. So here is the question, do you think that the
Suquehannock Indians built these rock formations? Some of the ideas that were in the book seemed a little far fetched for me. One of them being that
the piles were made by mentally challenged members of the then European society that was settling in the area to keep them occupied and away from the
real work. The big problem with this is that in one area there are over 200 of these standing and another good number of them destroyed by trees
growing up through them. In other words highly immprobable. Another theory is that they could have been made by Celtic or Phonecian explorers as
early as 800 BC. This seems to be another immprobable situation as well. It possibly being a Susquehannock Indian sacred site, to me seems to be the
most logical explanation.
The other reason I ask this, is because I Googled, Yahooed, MSNed, and a few other search engines and came up with nothing, including here. Now I do
understand that it's very insignificant to lets say Egypt, Mesopotamia, and the like, but it's very interesting to me because I don't have to spead
a small fortune if I want to see them for myself since they are only about 200 miles from me. There is one other avenue I'm going to try once I get
home from work, hopefully that will shed a little more light on the situation, but before I do, I want to ask about the credibility of Norman Muller.
He found a site similar to this one in Georgia with pottery that was dated around 500AD. Thanks for reading.
