York Museum Gardens

Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art


This is a lovely looking stone. So its unacknowledged position under a large conifer by the side of the path in York Museum's Gardens seems a little odd.

I e-mailed the museum later in the week to find out something about the stone, and was informed that it was one of two stones discovered on the moors around Whitby and given to the Yorkshire Philosophical Society by Canon Raines in 1895. It's partner is now lost.
