A Cup-and Ring-Marked Stone from Nottingham Hill

What a remarkable thing!

A cup and ring marked stone? In Gloucestershire? Written up by that stalwart of the Scots CnR fraternity R.W.B. Morris? In 1983?

Apparently so.

A tidy account of this OOPPRA* provided courstesy of the Bristol and Gloucestershire Archaeological Society. Via the University of Gloucestershire website.

(*out-of-place-portable-rock-art. I just made that term up. It's utter tosh really, as the stone found was made of local oolite, so it's not out of place. Which actually makes it seem all the more remarkable as you do not get CnRs down south. everyone knows that...)
