Whoohoo . Great stuff Ken . Bosses associated with burials again . Am I right in thinking the stone is slightly rounded ? If so a bit reminiscent of one of the Lepenski Vir "fish" stones . tiompan Posted by tiompan

Cheers T :) From what I could see it could even be fairly spherical, no idea how far round the carvings go though, got the 'ok' from an archaeologist to clear this far with my twig and toothbrush rock art kit cos it was exposed this much before some years back.
Reminded me of the clay bead from Knowth again that apparently looks a little Scottish, same idea with the bosses but without those glorious rings!

Amazing. !
Those bosses, that must have took some bloody time to carve.

Very impressive. I can see the Knowth similarity. It's almost like a La Tene piece. ryaner Posted by ryaner
