The Appalachian Orogeny is one of the geological mountain building events that created the Appalachian Mountains. This orogeny occurred about 325 million years ago and was caused by Africa colliding with North America at a time when these continents did not exist in their current forms. It applied massive stress on what is today the Eastern Seaboard of North America, forming a wide and high mountain chain. The Appalachians likely once reached elevations similar to those of the Alps, Andes, and the Rocky Mountains before they were eroded down to what they are today. The Appalachian Mountains are some of the oldest mountains in the world.

About sixty-six million years ago, the Appalachian Mountains had been eroded to an almost flat plain. It was not until the region was uplifted during the Cenozoic Era (sixty-five million years ago to the present) that the distinctive topography of the Appalachian Mountains formed. Running across and through the ridge and valley region of the Appalachians is the New River which is believed to have existed before this second mountain building process began. This era is known as the ‘Age of the Mammals.’ This uplifting rejuvenated the streams, which rapidly responded by cutting downward into the ancient bedrock. Some streams flowed along weak layers that define the folds and faults created many millions of years earlier. Sinking Creek, a side stream of the New River, is an example of this process.

Petroglyphs and Stone Alignments
Ancient cultural influences detected at Clover Hollow include strange and mystical stone alignments. Facing each other across Sinking Creek are two rock outcroppings that stand there like the piers of a gate. The carvings on these ‘gateposts’ are the same abstract facial features and artistic self expression as found on all the rock formations at the site—very anthropomorphic in style and design. They look as though they could be straight out of an Indiana Jones movie. All of the ancient rock carvings at this site are 3D in nature and could be described as ‘petroglyphs of the broad type’ as one archaeologist has suggested.

Unknown Origins
It shouldn’t be surprising an ancient civilization of unknown origin has been found in the Appalachian Mountains. These mountains are ten times older than for example the Andes, where numerous ancient cultures like Ollantaytambo, Saksayhuaman, and Machu Picchu, overlook a much newer Urubamba River Valley. It may be true however, that the oldest civilizations on Earth once thrived in the Appalachian region of North America only to have been ravaged by time and is now eroding, and crumbling into dust and eternity. Luckily the ‘Lost Tribe of Clover Hollow’ has been found and should encourage another look into the ancient origins of the Appalachian Mountains.

And not to forget that hypothesis about stone-age Europeans preceding Amerinds from Asia.

How the author of this article and many people think of the word civilization needs to change. A bunch of rocks with carvings on them in the Appalachian mountains isn't evidence a civilization existed there.
