The Peterborough Petroglyphs are a highly identifiable symbol of Ontario as the most significant set of petroglyphs (rock carvings) in Canada. They are presumed to have been the work of ancient ancestors of First Nations people local to the area, but are impossible to accurately date and remain mysterious. Scholars have demonstrated that the inscriptions belie a great knowledge of astronomy; a kind of ’star map.’ I prefer to think of them as a “alien communication” from the distant past; waiting to be decoded and interpreted, with a powerful message for our world today.
