Ancient British Rock Art

18 19 The area surrounding Dod Law shows a great variety of carvings, once again on flat outcrops on the highest ground. The rectangular detail on the stone opposite does not include rings as a formal element and is an interesting diversion. There is reasonable evidence here to suggest the more diagrammatic or representational purpose of these designs. The motif could possibly relate to the plans of an enclosure or hillfort. The pattern below, from Rowtor Rocks, interestingly includes cups and rings along with the visually more complex carving of the petalled form. The radiating elements could relate to organic matter or may represent the rays of the sun. The design is also reminiscent of a plan of the great Derbyshire fallen stone circle at Arbor Low.
