Short Mountain Rockart Site, Shenandoah County, Virginia
Investigations at Short Mountain Petroglyph Site (44Snxx), Shenandoah County, Virginia were performed by the Virginia Rockart Survey. The site is a summer solstice site and has not date. This site has two incised handprints and makes use of a natural impression in a large boulder which in shadow appears to be a footprint. Also, the site has natural concentric rings which appear in walls of the site area. The concentric ring is found at Paint Lick Mountain (44Tz13) and numerous sites in the western hemisphere. Also, the Mount Airy mound (now destroyed) is located within 1500 meters of this site.
