Stories in Stone
Stories in Stone (1 x 30)
We all know the expression “Written in Stone” but some stories literally are. Rock art and carvings are an important part of Nova Scotia’s history and story telling legacy. They're an enduring record of who came before us, yet their significance often remains shrouded in mystery. Today, archaeologists, historians, and adventurers take up the challenge of revealing the meaning of stories left behind in stone.
Stories in Stone is a half hour documentary that explores the mysterious stones and stone work created by the diverse cultures that represent Nova Scotia’s history including hundreds of ancient Mi’kmaq petroglyphs, mysterious monuments build by African settlers in Birchtown in the late 1700's, and a mysterious rune stone than may have been carved by Vikings centuries before other Europeans settlers had arrived.
