Stone Fort Petrogylphs
Description
Stone Forth Petroglyphs located in the Village of Challengers- This site is located on the outskirts the village of Challengers on the Leeward side of the island. Situated Along 200 meters on both sides of the ravine of the Pelham or Stone Fort River, some 115 cliff drawings (petroglyphs) have been identified at this site. Most of the drawings are no more than 12 inches (30cm) in height. The drawings appear on the vertical wall of a deep ravine through which the river runs. For most of the year the site is accessible by foot but during rainy season it may be dangerous as sudden flash flooding can occur when rain is falling in the nearby mountains. It is thought that the site dates from the Saladoid period and is the first recorded Amerindian site established on the Leeward coast at a time when habitation was mainly on the Windward coast. The site was evidently of great significance to the native inhabitants. It is believed that the massacre of the Amerindians in 1626 by the English and French colonists took place in this ravine.
