Description

Roughting Linn PT1

This dome shaped area of exposed bedrock, measures roughly 15 x 20 metres and can be found 5 miles (crow flight) north of Wooler, in Northumberland, England.

Its surface is covered with various motifs carved in the ‘cup and ring’ tradition, and is easily one of the most – if not the - extensively carved areas in England. Determining an exact date for such carvings is hard, but the evidence points in them belonging to the Neolithic – early Bronze-Age period (roughly 6000 - 4000 years ago). What the motifs represent is not known, although the context in which similar carvings are found across regions may indicate many reasons.
