Ancient British Rock Art

36 37 This area of the Northumberland moors lies in the shadow of the Cheviot Hills and a wealth of rock carvings are found here. The complex carvings on the famous Old Bewick stone opposite and below show how, in many examples, designs are created by chasing lines together. Once again there seems to be a specific purpose or meaning to these markings and the multiple rings, five in this case, intensify the overall design. One of the cups has a forked tail, a significant development from the single line, creating another route to or from the centre. As can be imagined the possible design permutations with so many integral elements must be almost infinite. ovErLAppIng rIngs tAILEd cups Old Bewick, Northumberland Old Bewick, Northumberland Old Bewick, NorthumberlandChris Mansell
