Among the most significant new findings—information that was not scientifically proven in 1991—is the age of the rock carvings found along the Ala Loa Trail (more commonly known as the King’s Trail) at Waikoloa. Using Carbon 14 dating, Professors Ron Dorn and Nicole Cerveny of Arizona State University’s Geology Department have determined the oldest petroglyph in the Waikoloa field was created in 840 AD and the most recent in 1900, according to Kwaiatkowski. “I believe petroglyph-making remained active and wide-spread in the islands just prior to the arrival of Captain Cook. For some unknown reason, after the arrival of Cook and all those other guys (early explorers), it died off relatively quickly,” he says.

Spent time on kauai as a youby adult
The menehune have intrigued me ever since
And these glyphs have sparked a renewed sense of awe for the islanders

Here you can see a bowl shaped in the rock presumably to crush and grind plant material.
I remember seeing a wonderful petroglyph at Anaehoomalu (the name of the bay around which the Waikoloa resort was built, I prefer that name). It was an image of a chief (recognizable by his headdress) with a curly tailed dog in his belly. I guess it was to commemorate a particularly good meal.
