Vottovaara Follow-up

photo by Soren Andersson, via wikipedia
A blog post by Finnish-Canadian blogger and artist Marja-Leena Rathje links to the Rock Piles Blog and the article on the Portal. She adds some interesting links at the end, including a great one to a translated Swedish Wikipedia article which offers a wealth of links at the end of it. All of this gives me hope that eventually some pedestaled stones will be recognized as cultural rather than glacial artifacts. Subtle and out-of-the-way specimens can easily be missed, so maybe all of this exposure will encourage people here to keep an eye out for them.

Again, a very evocative picture. I suppose we can hope someday to host European archeologist. They might develop an interest in our stonework whereas we could die waiting for that to happen with their American counterparts.
