Ancient British Rock Art

20 21 The Calderstones are the remains of a neolithic passage grave which was destroyed in 1845. They were placed on display close to the entrance to Liverpools Calderstones Park at the time, and were then moved again in 1964 and set in a circle. A range of elements found in rock art appear here, including carved footprints which are more common in Scandinavia and Brittany and rare in the United Kingdom. The main motifs are cups, concentric rings, concentric rings with central cups and spirals. The spirals are both clockwise and anticlockwise there is some suggestion, from examples at Newgrange, that this could record some seasonal change. It is not unreasonable to suspect that something is being recorded here and that the different combinations of symbols may have specific meanings. Likewise, the various number of cups at different sites may record different quantities. thE cALdErstonEs Allerton, Liverpool The Calderstones, now in a glasshouse in Liverpool DorsetshireChris Mansell
