|This site, located in a
marshy area, has produced Figure Stones carved in the
same motifs as those at the 33GU218 hilltop site in Ohio. It was visited in 2005
by Dr. Arsen Faradzhev, anthropologist and rock art expert from
Moscow, who determined material here and at 33GU218 to be
of human manufacture. He was accom- panied by Dr. James B.
Harrod who concurred with this assess- ment. The Lost Valley project is currently
inactive as the result of various problems, including of lack
of funding and insufficient interest on
the part of the Society for Pennsylvania Archaeology.
