I live in Monterrey, Mexico, actually near Monterrey about 30 miles is a place named Mina. Near here there is a large area that is covered with large artifacts and petroglyphs. Scientists recently dated a fireplace in this area as 8000 years old. There is a protected area nearby in Boca De Potrerillos with a museum. surrounding this area are more than 200 sites left unprotected and artifacts wash out of the sites everyday. I have found over 40 points: some seem old , some do not. I am hoping that someone visiting this site will help me identify the type and age of them.
I wrote back to Raul, and asked him to send in pictures and some other stuff--- His reply:
Bob, thanks for your answer.
First I will send to you different photos of the
Of course I never take any rocks from the protected areas! Those are like sacred testimonials of those people! The proctected areas are respected all the time! The arrow points I pick up were outside, in the whole valley. Some of them were traded for clothes or food with the valley inhabitants ( about 20 children and 10 adults): They are really poor: They survive in this desert by miracle.
I hope you enjoy Raul's Valley..... email him if you've got comments. I'm sure he'd like to hear from you: Email Raul
