From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rock Hawk Effigy Mound is an archaeological site in Putnam County, Georgia, United States. It consists of thousands of pieces of quartzite laid in the shape of a large bird. Although it is most often referred to as a hawk, scholars do not know exactly what type of bird the original builders intended to portray.

Only two such effigy mounds have been found east of the Mississippi River. The other, known as Rock Eagle, is also located in Putnam County, approximately thirteen miles to the northwest. (33°25.045′N 83°23.288′W / 33.417417°N 83.388133°W / 33.417417; -83.388133) The physical condition of Rock Hawk is far below that of its 'sister' site. Viewers must use a degree of imagination to see a bird — let alone a hawk — in the remains. Scholars do not know if there was greater degradation of the Rock Hawk site, greater preservation or reconstruction at Rock Eagle (which is by far the more famous of the two and a greater 'attraction'), or a combination of these or other factors.

Current archaeology suggests that the site was built between 1,000 and 3,000 years ago by Woodland Indians. These Native Americans may have been part of the Adena or Hopewell cultures, although it is more likely that they represented a unique group.

To protect the site, access to the mound is prohibited, and it is surrounded by a tall fence. The Georgia Power company manages the area. It maintains an easily accessible parking area near the mound, as well as a network of hiking trails and other recreational amenities in the area. Visitors are permitted to visit the mound free of charge. The site is located along Wallace Dam Road, off State Route 16, several miles east of Eatonton, near the shores of the manmade Lake Oconee.

  • ✪ Rock Hawk Effigy Mound - Ancient Mystery, Georgia

Transcription

Hey guys, we are flying over the woods and I am going to show yet another mystery that is only visible from the air in Putnam County, Georgia. I am Praveen Mohan and just a few videos back; I showed you something similar called the Rock Eagle Mound which is about 20 miles away. Here, we have yet another bird man effigy called Rock Hawk mound built somewhere between one thousand and three thousand years ago. My quadcopter has to fly from a parking lot a few hundred feet away because the GPS and the compass won't work from this location. Even though this is called the Rock Hawk Mound, nobody knows what it represents. It doesn't even really look like a bird. From the top, you can see it looks like a giant airplane or a man in a wingsuit. You can also see a very tall viewing tower built especially for this mound, because you can't tell the shape from looking at it from the ground. These animal figures called effigy mounds only make sense when viewed from the air, just like Nazca lines in Peru. Now a few centuries ago, there used to be plenty of these animal figures all over this county. When Europeans came in, they just built their houses and roads right on top of them, so there are only a very few left for us to see. Locals say there are more, a snake effigy and another mound called the Pressley mound. I have explored this area for a few days, but could not find the other mounds. Talked to dozens of people and nobody knows where these missing effigy mounds are and nobody cares about them either. This mound is made of thousands of pieces of white quartzite, making sure it is visible from a very high altitude, and before they created the tower and the paved road, it was surrounded completely by the woods. And guess what, no trees were growing around the mound to make sure it was not covered by wilderness. Whoever created this figure thousands of years ago treated the land to make sure trees would never grow around the mound. This is always the case with the mounds. Why? because the mound builders made sure it will always be visible from the air. And who would be able to see this from the air thousands of years ago, except extraterrestrials? These mounds could have been built all across the U.S as aerial signals. After all, we used to do the same in 1920s, burying giant arrows called beacon arrows on the ground to guide airplanes. Now, we don't even know the actual dimensions of this mound, because people tried to dig into it, in search of treasure. Nothing was found whatsoever but it destroyed the actual shape, but it could be a birdman because stones and plates of quote on quote Birdmen have been found underneath other mounds in Georgia. I hope you liked this video, I am finding a lot of ancient structures like this, so please do subscribe to my channel. Thank you for watching and talk to you soon.
