Nag's Head (Natural Rock Feature) — Fieldnotes

The Nag's Head is a natural rock sculpture on Wingletang Down. (see also Wingletang Cairn Cemetry). This area is fully exposed to the Atlantic and the hard granite has been cut into fantastic shapes by wind and water. The Cornish antiquarian, William Borlase, saw the weird shapes, cup marks and hollows as being "Druidic". All are natural and Borlase's "Druids' chalices and bowls" are not cup and ring marks. This should signal caution to modern antiquarians when looking at similar depressions elsewhere in Britain. Earthstepper Posted by Earthstepper

Wingletang Down (Cairn(s)) — Fieldnotes

Forty-three cairns have been found in the heather of this exposed moorland. Some are retained by kerbs of granite bouders. Field walls to the north-east connect some of the cairns. Earthstepper Posted by Earthstepper
