Pohnpaid * Pohnpei * Petroglyphs- October 2010

This is the largest petroglyph site in the northwest tropical Pacific islands.

There are also petroglyphs on the nearby boulders of metamorphic rock. The petroglyphs on the boulders are different from the ones on the large outcropping. On one large boulder, as plant matter was removed, more petroglyphs were revealed that our local guide had not seen before.

There are three mortars at the large metamorphic outcropping site. I have not seen these mentioned in any literature and these may have been overlooked. Once I scooped the water out of the depressions the area of worked stone was obvious.
