Newspaper Rock State Historic Monument

Newspaper Rock State Historic Monument Review

One of the West's most famous rock-art sites, Newspaper Rock contains Native American designs engraved on the rock over the course of 2,000 years. Apparently, early pioneers and explorers to the region named the site Newspaper Rock because they believed the rock, crowded with drawings, constituted a written language with which early people communicated. Archaeologists now agree that the petroglyphs do not represent language.
