Canmore database modernized!


In a silent move, the RCAHMS switched to a state-of-the-art update of the good old Canmore database on 11th March 2009.
It really looks much better and there are obvious advantages over the old format like direct access instead of a log-in procedure and, when available, a 10-digit gridref.
But the best is yet to come:
"Further Canmore developments are being prepared, and from May, you will be able to make your own contributions to the database – a first for any Scottish national collection – including adding text and images through Flickr. You will also be able to customise Canmore to reflect your own requirements with a new 'myCanmore' facility, set up RSS feeds and links into social networking sites."
Now that sounds really great; "myCanmore", no need for grumbling about (type) errors anymore!
For those of you wrestling with the Canmap feature: that is still what it was but maybe it will be updated too. Hope so!
Congrats for the RCAHMS for this big leap forwards towards a virtual museum of Scotland's (pre-) History.
Here's the link to the new Canmore database:

Enjoy!

Knock (Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art) — Fieldnotes

In August 2008, during a field walk West of the ruined Knock farmhouse, a new vulva-like motif was found in grid reference NX 3690 3995, consisting of an enhanced natural oval feature.
These kind of enhanced natural features are not common in British rock art. There are but a few examples, e.g. at Townhead (D&G). There are, however, more engraved natural holes in Ireland, e.g. at Drumsinnot, Co. Louth, West Dundalk, but they look different from the Kock-5 panel.
