Corby's Crags Rock Shelter (Cave / Rock Shelter) by Gavin Douglas Close up of the inside of the rock shelter.
Note the carved "arm chair"-a later addition.
Stan Beckensal, who excavated the floor of the shelter in 1975, found a mixture of artifacts dating from about 8,000 years ago (Mesolithic flint flakes) and a cremation urn from 4,000 years ago, which was covered by a triangular, cup marked stone. A similar motif can be seen on the top of the shelter. (Stan Beckensall--"The Power of Place" 2001 Tempus Publishing Ltd)
