The Stonehenge megaliths are greatly admired, but the stone circles with astronomical engravings of the State of Cojedes, the rows of megaliths of Carabobo, and the menhirs and dolmens of the State of Amazonas, remain mostly unknown. 

The linear and circular engravings found on menhirs in Venezuela, indicators of the contemporaneousness of both manifestations in our country, are of universal importance in the difficult scope of archaeological dating. 

The ANAR includes the chronicles and drawings of explorers as early as Chanffanjon and Humboldt, as well as digitally enhanced photographs of outstanding samples.
