judging the cold and windy conditions, i would asume the coast line was further out in mesolithic times, it is a very exposed area. p0ds Posted by p0ds

Gathering the Jewels

These super little beads were made from natural stone discs found on the shore below, drilled in Mesolithic times. Nab Head was an important Mesolithic seasonal camp.

shows another carved shale artefact - its discoverer, J P Gordon-Williams described it as a 'Duck Head' but this was probably to cover for its obviously phallic appearance. Though it's also been interpreted as a stylised Venus figurine.. but let's face it, men have been scrawling knobs on things for millennia. Does it have to have more significance than that?
