Rock map



I see a shape pecked out on a rock in the woods.  I believe it is a ‘drawing’ of a pond which is an hour’s walk away along an ancient route.

Stone row, terminating at a swamp and a “hook”.



I’ve seen stone rows like this written up in other blogs. 
This runs North/South, one end meets a swamp and the other end makes a tight turn to the west.  The “hook” is at the south end. No other stone rows intersect it.

Looking South:


Looking North:

Cross-referencing Native People’s placenames with today’s placenames



I’m always forgetting what today’s names are for the Native People’s placenames  I come across in older texts, so I built a spreadsheet to keep track of them.

Today I converted that spreadsheet to a database, and put a front end on it so others can use it, and hopefully add their knowledge:

The Turtle’s head



I took a couple more shots of the head of the turtle mentioned in a previous post.
I cannot seem to edit that post to add these photos, so I’ll do it here.

The first picture shows the ‘bowl’ indentation on the turtle’s head.

The second shows the stone ‘tongue’.


In the third photo I attempt to show a small sapling which has been cut in order to clear the turtle’s view.  Someone did that about five years ago.  This is in the woods, about ¼ mile from a country road which was for thousands of years a major path between known villages.
The area continues to give off a powerful vibe today.

Documentary film on “Praying Indians” of the 1600s



March 14th.  Details at: http://www.ironworkfarm.org/
I’m not familiar with the maker of the film, but it could be interesting.

Here’s a link to some interactive maps I made a few years ago of some of the “Praying Villages”:
