Carved Stone Balls Exhibition

"Carved Stone Balls - a Prehistoric Mystery"
The exhibition runs January 19 - March 31 2004 at the Marischal Museum in Aberdeen.

No-one knows exactly what the balls were used for, but the exhibition includes suggestions from archaeologists, the children of Woodside School and the sculptor Keiji Nagahiro (two of whose sculptures are included in the exhibition).

For further information contact Dr Hilary Murray on 01224 274305 or visit the website at

"As over 70 stone balls will be on display this is a unique opportunity to see one of the largest collections of these enigmatic carvings."

Also why not see Annabel Carey's batiks of standing stones, "Spirit of Stones", also on at the museum until the 19th of February. Her inspirations include well known north-east sites such as Sunhoney, Cullerlie and Loanhead of Daviot. An example is on the website above.
