Description

This stone, carved in the 'cup and ring' tradition can be found on High Green, to the NE of Skyreholme and Appletreewick, North Yorkshire, England.

Most archaeologists believe that such carvings were created approx 6000-3500 years ago, in the period spanning the late Neolithic to early Bronze Age. Exactly why they were carved is not known, but their regional variation in complexity, topographic setting, context and also type of stone (boulder / outcrop) may suggest multiple meanings existed.

This particular carved rock has been incorporated into walling, part of which has been dismantled here by Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority for recording and the building of a stile.
