Cup Marked Stone


In his wonderful book, Inscribing the Landscape: The rock art of South Leinster Christiaan Corlett writes of the re-use and rediscovery of 3 cup-marked stones in Preban cemetery. We found 2 of these stones, and what is maybe a fourth, very small, stone with 2 cups.

Using the gazeteer at the back of the book, it was hard to locate the stones as they are both not in the same position as when Christiaan photographed them. I've only realised now that the third stone, the one that we didn't find, named Preban 1 in the book, is illustrated also. Ah well.

I've followed the naming convention from the book, Preban 1, 2 and 3 and taken the liberty of adding the fourth, Preban 4, discovered by seven-year-old Lily-Mae.
