Newspaper Rock is so-called because of its plethora of petroglyphs. No one knows much about these ancient carvings, other than that they are younger than the painted pictographs. This ancient art is found all over the four-corner region.
This rock was either a meeting place or was a place that many tribes passed by. Or maybe it had some other meaning. There is no codex to explain the symbols, so no one can be quite sure.
