See what you mean. Didn't notice that, but wouldn't be surprised. It is rather near Bridgend, after all. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

Bryn Cader Faner / Fieldnotes by ironstone

Good notes - despite finding these places for the best part of 30 years now my map reading skills haven't really developed beyond 'barely adequate' .... so you aren't alone. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

Must admit that rainbows fascinate me; similarly highlight and shade. Just because we know what causes them doesn't make them any less beautiful. GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

Sorry I don't comment as often as I should Robert but this is an amazing, irresistible photo. The Rainbow's End. tjj Posted by tjj

To be fair I got a hammering in South Wales, too. But then you don't get such wonderful light under blue skies... GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

Wonderful. Writing this comment from a relentlessly rainy Rhosneigr I think you have been to the right end of the country. Allt yr Esgair has been on my list for ages, really must make the effort. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

I remember you posting that garden stone somewhere, F***book maybe. I haven't checked it out yet as I haven't come across it on archaeology.ie, so much to see so little time etc. I had noticed all the other field clearance on the far side of the field - peculiar set of circumstances all round really, why dig it up if you know it's significant? ryaner Posted by ryaner

Interesting place - is that a mound or bank between the stones? thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Yeah Chris said he had been around the house before but had not been over at the boulder. I think they did know it was significant, you might have seen all the other large boulders from the field were dumped in a hollow on the other side of the field, just this one was moved over to the back of the house. Did you go over to the other one I found on the road between Newtown and Roundwood? Spotted cup marks on a boulder in the front garden as I drove past one evening, Chris made a visit and confirmed it. There's rings on it too. CianMcLiam Posted by CianMcLiam

It sure is. Chris Corlett has paid a visit and photographed it. Didn't know it was your find. Mad stuff. Kind of strange that whoever dug it up and laid it there left it topside up rather than just dumping it. Do you think they might have known what they were dealing with? ryaner Posted by ryaner

Parkmore / Image by ryaner

No, I don't think so Drew, I think it's part of the boundary. It's not listed as part of the monument anyway. ryaner Posted by ryaner

Is this up on archaeology.ie now Ryaner? Found this one day while having a look around the abandoned house and reported it to the NMS. Couldn't believe a boulder with so many cup marks had been missed! CianMcLiam Posted by CianMcLiam

This is too exciting. Even a subterranea-fearing coward like myself will be elbowing people out the way to get to the front of the queue. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon
