It's about time : A chronological timeline of events on Bainbridge Island
1000 BC to 500 AD —— The Agate Point petroglyphs are carved.The sandstone markings found near Agate Pass on Bainbridge Island is said to have been carved between 1000 BC to 500 AD. The rock's eastern face is carved with a row of wide—eyed faces that inspired the Suquamish name, Haleelts, meaning many faces. Anthropologists believe that humans first migrated across the Bering Strait between 10 and 40 thousand years ago. The petroglyph lies precisely west of the Skykomish canyon 60 miles away. Standing at the petroglyph on the vernal and autumnal equinox, one can view the rising sun shining straight through the canyon.
