Stories and science meet at Jeffers Petroglyphs

 


COMFREY, Minn. (AP) — Jeffers Petroglyphs — where 3,000 stone carvings recently came to light, where archaeologists uncovered tools that suggest Native Americans did more there than simply pass through — the most important discoveries may be self-discoveries.

A sacred site for potentially as long as 11,000 years, Native American elders believe it was a place for individual prayer. The most recent carvings were made 250 years ago. Jeffers remains one of the oldest continuously used sacred sites in the world.
