The discovery centers around a most unusual set of rock carvings found in the National Park forest of the Hunter Valley, 70 miles north of Sydney.
The enigmatic carvings have been part of the local folklore of the area for nearly a century with reports of people who sighted them dating as far back as the early 1800′s when Australia was pretty rural.
There are at least 300 hieroglyphs known to be visible at this location and they would have taken many thousands of hours to engrave into the rock.
