West Connecticut may seem an unlikely place to find ancient inscriptions from the Old World, but there they are, etched in granite atop a six hundred-foot mountain ten miles southwest of Hartford. Part of the narrow, linear Metacomet Ridge extending from Long Island Sound near New Haven to the Vermont border. Pinnacle Rock stands above the Quinnipiac and Farmington Rivers. Nearby, to the southeast, are the crumbling, concrete bunkers of what was once, during the paranoid “Cold War”, a Nike missile base.
