Flagstones (Enclosure) by Rhiannon The accompanying blurb said: "Rock carving from the Flagstones monument on chalk bedrock. Middle Neolithic, c3300BC.
One of four carved on chalk rockfaces within separate ditch segments of this circular enclosure. This is the largest. The gentle serpentiform line within enclosed rings is cut across an earlier carving. The image can be regarded as anthropomorphic and perhaps a cult symbol linked to life, death and burial."
