Are finds artifacts or aging rocks?
An archaeologist with the state Department of Historic Resources is headed to western Goochland County next week with hopes of confirming a major historical find.

Chris Stevenson has gone on dozens of treasure hunts, only to be disappointed. But this one has potential, he said.

"There's something there," Stevenson said. "But whether it occurred in nature or culturally, we will have to wait and see."

The objects in question are possible sculptures and petroglyphs -- carvings made into rock -- of bears, eagles and human faces. Glyn Hall discovered the pieces while placing flags in the ground to mark boundaries for an organic vegetable garden.

Boy, I dunno. . .they have a slide show with some of the 'artifacts' but I sure can't see anything.

More odd rocks here.
