And blah blah

 

about blah and blah

and further down the road to Quaker meeting house on Redstone Creek. Redstone Creek has good bottomland.

 

And this is a straight line off a chicken’s ass. I would classify digs for petroglyphs at or around one water feature away from the main road, i.e., line of sight from the high ridges along the elevated pass. The passage west is up and down. Redstone Creek has a significant bottomland longform.

petroglyph pass monongahela.

 

The yellow spot is Redstone Creek.

Here I have Eerie people, the Monongahela, Shawnee, I do not know. The last two destinations are New Pittsburgh and New Philadelphia. I don’t have time to look into it, but I would imagine I could find railroad and steel in the development o this area, owing to the ease of trade along the corridors controlled by the Native Americans of the area, and the characteristic large floodplains useful for planting crops or seasonal settlements.

 

Just became interested in a system of petroglyphs used by these people…

This document contains five reports on petroglyph surveys conducted during the summer of 1960 in the Upper Ohio Valley. These include the Francis Farm Petroglyph site (36 Fa 35), the New Geneva Petroglyph site (36 Fa 37), the Sugar Grove Petroglyph site (36 Gr 5), the Table Rock Petroglyph site (46 OH 36), and the Timmons Farm Petroglyph site (46 OH 64) which are located in both West Virginia and Pennsylvania. The Archives of Archaeology Series is a 29-volume set jointly published by…

And the god they feared was the Underwater Panther. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alligator_Effigy_Mound

 

It’s an otter. Sounds sort of familiar to a badger or a fisher. A fisher  is like a cross between an otter and a jaguar. Very fierce, weird, rarely seen predators of this region. I saw one chasing a squirrel through treetops one winter night, thirty feet up. It scared me really bad. I had never seen an animal that looked quite like that. Think of an otter on steroids with a long tail an long fur. Eats anything it can.

Fisher Goes to Skyland  – How the fisher brings us sunny weather south of the Great Lakes half the year. The fisher has only one weakness, a spot on his tail. The only spot on a tail that can kill you is a point. An “arrow” is a point on a line that represents a continuation of a line. Fisher tells me how to navigate. I found petroglyphs due north south east and west of Old Redstone Fort.

Search for features:

  1. Longform bottomland
  2. Prominent features close to a body of water. Possible the were using the sun and its reflection (Underwater Lynx/Jaguar), with the eyes being the sun and its reflection.
  3. Barnesville Track Rock has a footprint on it. I am trying to get the exact position it points, from Heel to Toe.
  4. Orthogonal system of settlements or petroglyphs loated within two lines of sight from summits.
  5. Check Perryopolis record in Library of Congress and Gist texts

Grub:

Cucurbita pepo(squash/gourd); Chenopodium spp. (goosefoot); Polygonum spp. (knotweed or smartweed); Hordeum pusillum (little barley); Phalaris caroliniana (maygrass); Iva annua (sumpweed). Most of these plant foods are well represented at archaeological sites of the following Late Woodland/Late prehistoric period with the inclusion of Helianthus annuus (sunflower).
