The Wenkle petroglyph site in Franklin County was documented by Robert Elgin (member
of the Missouri Archaeological Society) during the 1950s; it was recorded by Dale Henning and Leslie Cahill. The site is very isolated and located on private land; it is not open to the public.
Circle petroglyph at the Wenkle site; scale is 20 cm.
The Wenkle site was cut into a horizontal sandstone shelf.
The Wenkle (23FR111) is discussed by Carol Diaz-Granados (1993:516)
and Diaz-Granados and Duncan (2000: 58, 61, 78, 121, 250).
The site name is spelled "Winkle" by Diaz-Granados (1993) and Diaz-Granados and Dunca (2000); I use the spelling preferred by the landower.
