Hi Folks,

George Nash would like to draw your attention to an article of his and Adam Stanford in the Rock Art Research Journal, 2007, Volume 24, Number 2.

I must admit that it wasn’t easy to get that PDF form online (Brian: Help!) but if you click here you’ll find it on your screen.

Thanks a lot George!

Cheers,

Jan

    Good to hear that Wales is being “searched ” . Considering the numbers it won’t take long to have them dectupled (neologism). Interesting about Bryn Celli Ddu as it is not uncommon to find passage graves with RA but no open air RA in the immediate area e.g. Bru and Maes Howe , Loughcrew etc..

    Barclodiad Y Gawres (Apronful (cairn) of the Giantess) is another one of those places i would like to visit, – one day?

    A few years back I read Powell and Daniel’s book about the excavation of this site and vaguely recall they mentioned uncovering a stone with faint markings during the first season of the dig but when they returned for a second season the markings were no longer visible? could it be this lost carved stone has now been recorded?

    Either way it would be fascinating to know what went on in these chambered mounds.
