Description

This stone, carved in the 'cup and ring' tradition can be found on Weetwod Moor, to the SE of Wooler in Northumberland. 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 is one of the most elaborate carvings on Weetwood Moor, and judging by the preservation its spent most of its life under vegetation.
