High Banks (Cup and Ring Marks / Rock Art) — Fieldnotes

Visited High Banks today with a large group of enthusiasts both local and from further afield. The rock art assemblages appear to still be in good condition compared to images from some years back.
We were very lucky to have a gorgeous afternoon to wander over cattle-free pastures!

Nebel - Kanshugh (Round Barrow(s)) — Fieldnotes

Between Nebel and Norddorf there are still three burial mounds: Klöwenhugh, Makkanhugh and Kanshugh. Unlike Makkanhugh, Kanshugh is still clearly recognizable and and visible from afar.

Unfortunately I couldn't find any information about archaeological findings or excavation on this burial mound.

Kanshugh lies about 750 m north northwest from Makkanhugh on the same track. So take my directions from [[Makkanhugh] and continue on the same track for another 750 m. Kanshugh lies in a field to the left, about 100 m from the track.

Nebel - Makkanhugh (Round Barrow(s)) — Fieldnotes

Between Nebel and Norddorf there are still three burial mounds: Klöwenhugh, Kanshugh and Makkanhugh. From these three Makkanhugh is the most ruined barrow. One can only guess its outlines, in a depression in the middle of the mound a single stone still peeks out.

Unfortunately I couldn't find any information about archaeological findings or excavation on this burial mound.

From Nebel take the road Waasterstigh (mainly used as a cycle path to Norddorf), pass the cemetery on the right and turn right after about 350 m into Lütt-Elks-Weg. After another 270 m, turn left and follow this track. Makkanhugh lies in the field on the left after about 210 m.
