ANCIENT STONE STRUCTURES OF WESTERN NORTH AMERICA
This is not purported to be a scientific study but it contains enough physical evidence to show the stone structures covered in this website are worthy of a honest and thorough investigation.
All of the evidence presented here is physical in nature. Hearsay is unacceptable and speculation is minimal.
Urban legends about the stone lines will be compared to the reality of the existing structures.
The most popular hypotheses about Mima Mounds will be also be compared to the physical evidence.
The evidence is plentiful and widespread. Results here can be repeated by others.
The evidence is simple and straight forward, some geological knowledge is helpful to understand some of it.
The site is going to take at least a year to complete. There is quite a bit of raw material which still needs organization and preparation.
There is also additional material from other investigators and photographers who have graciously consented to the use of their material.
The site is worked on part time and is in a perpetual state of misconstruction. Too much attitude, bad writing and worse jokes, but a very cool rabbit hole.
The Western United States is not supposed to contain any megalithic structures. The physical evidence disagrees.
Gathered evidence falls in two overlapping categories:
- Artificial characteristics:
- stacked stones
- out of place stones
- colored mineral coatings
- shaped stones
- surface markings
- surface texturing
Some structures fit in both categories.
The plan is to present evidence for each characteristic and structure.
THE SHASTA VALLEY:
There are many areas of California containing the stone structures, the most important is the Shasta Valley because it contains:
- the largest cluster of stone lines in the state.
- the Weed Mima Mound's "Mysterious Stone Circles".
- a large number of cairns.
- Mt Shasta, an active volcano (geological clock).
- the Pluto Cave Basalt Flows (geological clock).
The Shasta Valley also has a couple of excellent public places to veiw these structures.
While no segments will be complete for a while, the following three areas have material available.
The California Stone Line Inventory contains maps of 20 stone line clusters and over 750 miles of California's stone lines and more.
In the Shasta Valley the Weed Mima Mound Field is known to have been decorated with stones, some weighing tons.
Strange ancient star holes, circular holes and oval holes are found in the stone lines and related structures.
