But in a photograph to the untrained eye it looks like a prehistoric standing stone. The smr information on the Magic map is inconveniently lacking.

I've not been up close, but from about 50 yards, it does look like the genuine I-am. The lack of Magic info is always annoying when it happens. Some of the best known sites in Northumberlan apparently "Have no data".

There's another stone over by Yeavering bell that gets called the Battle Stone, allegedly to commemorate one of the countless spats during the border reiver years. There's no dout amongst the archaeologists about the antiquity of either that ot the King's stone, but the names are isleading. Indirectly, it's one of the consequences of letting romans barge in and muck up your landscape by building a daft great wall. But that's another rant entirely.
