Cup Marked Stone


This stone was brought into the Durham Rock Art Conference on 8-3-2003 in the back of someone's car. The delegate had found it in a stream near Longframlington, and was now in a carrier bag, so there's no point in trying to find this one :-) Stan Beckensall got very excited about it.

One side is green and more weathered. The other side is very well-preserved, with clear pick marks. There is a large chunk missing.
Comments were made on the way the green side used a natural line in the stone to look like a face ?!

Unfortunately these are the best of my photies.
