Rock carvings that are said to be several thousands of years old Discuss this article

Here you can view rock carvings that are said to be several thousands of years old. The carvings – of scorpion-like boats viewed from above, galleons and Arabian-style anchors – are interspersed with rows of cup-shaped depressions that were probably used to play traditional games. The rounded stone mounds have carvings scattered right across them but, grey-on-grey, they can be quite hard to spot at first. Once you’ve spied one, however, you’ll quickly pick out others.
