Extra carvings discovered on mysterious rock faraway from Orono woods

A rock bearing century-old carvings has been moved from its former resting spot within the woods close to the Orono-Outdated City line to its new house on the Outdated City Museum.

Museum president Eisso Atzema stated crews on Tuesday introduced an excavator to the location, which is between the Penobscot River and the railroad tracks and owned by Mike Thornton of Milford-based Thornton Development. They rigorously dug up the rock, a big piece of granite that was partially buried within the soil, doubtless deposited there by a glacier over the past Ice Age.

In the course of the excavation, the rock cut up into three massive items, which Atzema stated made it simpler to move, as one of many items doesn’t have any carvings on it. The opposite two items have carvings. At the least three extra inscriptions can now be made out, and there presumably are extra that may’t but be seen, Atzema stated.
