Hello,

I have recently found some rocks on my property which I think are very old and have been carved by an ancient civilization.  How can I find out the exact ages of these rocks and authenticate these possible carvings? I am located in Wisconsin, U.S.  I am attaching 2 photos but I have approximately 20-30 rocks.  Please tell me your exact thoughts on these rocks.

Thank you for your time.

Answer
The so called carving as seen in the pics. seems to me be the intrinsic part of the rocks.
My suggestion is to show the same to :
(1) nearest office of Archeology to say if indeed it is ancient carving?
(2) nearest office of a geologist ot Geological Survey of America or even to some prof. of nearby college/university.
thanks
