Richard Gonsalves-“Emerging Stories in Petroglyphs”

Visit to sign up for monthly reminders and the Zoom link.

Richard Gonsalves, the president of the Agave House Chapter of the Arizona Archaeological Society in Heber/Overgaard, Az. will present “Emerging Stories in Petroglyphs." A longtime resident of Arizona, Gonsalves has a unique ability to see petroglyphs in a different view. The ancient rock carvings are in the American Southwest, in Arizona and New Mexico. While he is not an archaeologist,  his passion led him to major discoveries, partnering with John Ruskamp, Jr. the author of the book "Asiatic Echoes - The Identification of Ancient Chinese Pictograms in Pre-Columbian North American Rock Writing, 3rd edition." Gonsalves will also discuss calendrical markers, astronomical symbols, and Native American culture that he has found in the petroglyphs. You will have new insights to the enigmas and potential origins of these petroglyphs, through the story they tell of ancient visitors to the southwest.
