Hunterheugh 13

Rock Art in Northumberland. This large boulder is decorated with 38-40 cup-marks which run around the edge of its sloping surface. Some of the cups near the western ege of the boulder are connected with grooves.

Der Menhir von Wolfsgruben

The great Menhir von Wolfsgruben stands on a small hill near the lake of Wolfsgruben in Northern Italy. It is a big standing stone (~3m height), nowadays with a second balancing stone on it.

Carn Fadrun

A spectacular fort on the Lleyn Penninsula, Carn Fadrun was also the site of a Norman Castle. It is defended by a dry-stone wall on the summit. A number of round and rectangular huts have been found within, but it is unclear whether these are prehistoric or 12th Century.

St Ninians Fife Earth Project

Anyone who has driven up the M90 motorway, Dumfries and Galloway in the last twenty years could hardly have failed to notice the St Ninians open-cast coal mine near Kelty. A landscape transformed and consumed through raw material extraction, technology and human labour. The coloured flecks of jabbing industrial machinery appearing to shrink to insect scale as the vast grey void opened up. In 2003, the international landscape artist and cultural theorist Charles Jencks was commissioned by the mine owners, Scottish Resources Group, to develop a landform proposal to regenerate the area.

Plan de Sorcières

Two groups of cup marks carved on a pair of boulders in a clearing in Northern Italy. Discovered by Paolo Chiaberto and the archaeo-astronomer Guido Cossard. It is argued that their arrangement strongly resembles the Pleiades constellation as seen about 5000-6000 years ago and includes the "lost" 7th Pleiad.

Sandbach Crosses

Two lavishly decorated Anglo-Saxon crosses in Cheshire, dated to the first half of the ninth century. It has been suggested that the crosses are earlier (643 AD) and were erected to mark the introduction of Christianity into Mercia by Peada, son of Penda the last pagan King of Mercia.
