    I would suggest talking to a local archaeological club or museum to get their opinion on what you should do. I wouldn't just start digging willy-nilly because that could destroy some microscopic archaeological evidence or more important small artifacts. This could lead to a full scale excavation in the vicinity of the rocks. My opinion would be to not mess around with any of it until professional advice is given to the site.

    Oh please! An archys advice is always the same, dont touch anything, youre not qualified. It doesnt matter if the site is a rock carving, home site, or modern playground. There is nothing that is going to be learned from "microscopic evidence" that isn't already known.

    Looks like central Mexico. Definitely not Tarahumara or Sonoran but further south. Looks like basalt so it might be from around just south of Toluca? Sierra Nevada? Location matters because you can then figure out who the native people were who might have marked these stones.

    Those are great, but still very standard Native American petroglyphs. There may be some very NON-standard glyphs there as well... it would take an expert (and yes... there ARE experts, regardless of what some here are claiming) to know that. But here are two that I immediately recognized, even as a layman:

    Spirals

    Snakes

    I have seen pictures of similar finds in the south west Arizona and new Mexico. Beautiful find! I too would do a lot of looking in the area...triangle is odd for Indians...and some fo the carvings are just doodles... most do have meanings if only to the artist...others tell where main trails, trading spots, water, game, precious minerals (to Indians) etc. are.

    Many times you have Spanish or Mexican signs mixed into Indian symbols to hide what is being said. NEVER EVER MOVE OR DESTROY A ROCK WITH SYMBOLS ON IT. TREASURE IS NOT UNDERNEATH A SYMBOL.

    In this picture you have a triangle, with a fishhook, and a mine or treasure location symbol. Notice the rock is a pointer rock (points in a certain direction). So what does it all mean?

    Pointer rocks either point to something or away from something.

    The triangle means that you have three location points. Often times they were trees, but could be boulders or something else tat is obvious. Could even be hills if obvious.

    The fish hook means to come up on the left side that is why the hook is on the left side. The possible treasure location is up on the left side of this triangle.

    I would first go to the rock, stand on top of it, and look in the direction the rock is pointing. See if there are three things that could make a triangle out away from you. It could be up to a league away, but doubtful. The rock you are standing on could also be the beginning of the triangle. The treasure is not under a rock, especially one with symbols on it. You will probably need a metal detector to find it.

    If it is not in front of you these symbols could be reverse symbols meaning they are behind you. In other words, turn around and look the other direction.

    You have a number of pointer rocks in the pictures on this page. Stand somewhere in this area and do a slow 360 degree video high and low. 'Send it to me and I might be able to discern more by looking at the geography.

    In this picture you have another possible treasure. See the swirly thing and then you have a line with a snake head pointing off to the right with an indentation in the head. The swirly thing is often a sign of a snake and where the end of the tail is, it points to the location of a treasure. Now the snake head also points to the treasure, and the hole in it indicates its in the ground. It could also be pointing to another sign in that direction, if it is, it's fairly close.

    Some people say measure the distance of the snake head above the ground, multiply times 10, go in the direction in feet the snake head is pointing and that is the location of the treasure.

    Try both methods, but if you notice in this picture up ahead of this stone marker you have a rock pointing in the same direction this snake head is pointing. I would say you are onto something, but I can't tell without being there.

    Buenos Suerte!!

    Forget about treasure. First Nation people didn't need treasure except for what we all need. Food, water, shelter. The petroglyph is the treasure. Even more interesting is some figures seem to depict visitors. Unusual shaped beings. I'm not a believer one way or the other but still causing me to wonder. Those figures along with the huge earth carvings in S America that seem to be a landing area.
