Hearts and Hands One of the things we love about visiting so many ancient sites is the pull they still exert on people, despite the thousands of years that have elapsed since they were built. Over several decades visiting sites together my wife and I have found that, no matter how remote they might be, we are rarely the only people there.

What motivated people to come here and leave these marks?
