Im still on the job. Ive dug up quite a bit of interesting material in regards to the Adena but Id like to wait for the response of this gentleman
before I go Springer and post my final thouht.
Hi ....its ...., daughter. My mother is consistantly accusing me of of being a conspiracy nut. Im not. Im simply a scientist at heart. I always
Im a member of the topics forum Abovetopsecret.com.( I stick to the science, philosophy, and ancient civilization threads) Recently, I came across a
pic posted by a gentlemen depicting a carving of sorts (a circled tree) there in WV.
Ive ben racking my brain researching, first to indentify the rock, ( I think its Phyllite) then igneous tribes( Adena, Conoy, Shawnee, and finally
Welsh heritage) in an attempt to identify the carver and the carvers intentions.
Another poster had suggested this was a shield form for cold forging copper. Mom added that water erosion would've caused a fossilized imprint of the
object had it sat there long enough.Others have suggested perhaps it was a map. I had thought maybe a stamp of territory due to the gentlmens
revelation that the branches resemble the topography of surrounding hollows.
After further scrutinizing the photos and turning up no cooberating tribal artwork ( though tribes do record thier maps in the surrounding enviroment
) I tend to agree with mom and think the copper forging may be a good hypothosis.
I ve studied the erosion pattern and patina, it appears to be at least 100 yrs of age. Mom said your brother .... was an archeologist and may be able
to shed some light. Similar figures have ben found throughout the lower part of the state. Here is the link I hope you can help.
I will send the link to my brother to see what he thinks.
