These photos were taken on March 27. They show rock carvings, made more than 200 years ago by Abenaki Native Americans, in Bellows Falls, Vermont. That's about 20 minutes by car or Amtrak from Brattleboro. It takes about 10 minutes to walk to the carvings from the train station.
In an interview with the Valley Post, Colin Galloway authenticated the carvings. Galloway is professor of Native American history at Dartmouth College, and the author of "The Western Abenakis in Vermont," among many other books. The paint was added much more recently.
