Summary
"In 2011, retired doctor Hal Young discovered perfectly preserved prehistoric stone sculptures that revealed a pictorial history of the Pleistocene epoch in Albemarle County, Virginia. With 188 color photos, 3 illustrations, 1 map, and index, Stone Revelations of the Last Ice Age documents a world many thought never existed, displaying sculptures of over 35 ice age species and at least 10 unprecedented examples of human faces. The book features ancient artwork that is an astonishing testimony to the earliest human occupation of North America. These ancient artifacts offer insight to many unsolved mysteries of the last ice age, the First People, and extinct megafauna. It's the only book of its kind on the market to include incredible new findings on the Pleistocene epoch. Stone Revelations is a must read for anyone interested in archaeology and North American prehistory."--Information provided by publisher.
