Prehistoric rock-art at Howden Hill
Prehistoric rock-art at Howden Hill, taken 2 months ago
In a disturbed area of grassy mounds and scattered stones the turf-covered cup-marked rocks on Howden Hill can be hard to find. The site which includes two earthfast boulders carved with multiple cup-marks became a Scheduled Monument (List Entry Number: 1418656) in 2014.

"Potential: it will inform our knowledge of prehistoric society through individual study of its motifs and carving style, and through an increased understanding of the circumstances in which rock art was created and used.
Group value: taken together with the three scheduled Bronze Age round cairns in the immediate vicinity, it will enhance our understanding of wider Bronze Age ritual and funerary practice."
