Northumberland Rock Art

Posted by [email protected] on December 8, 2016 at 4:35 AM

The Northumberland landscape has over a thousand examples of  prehistoric activity from ancient occupation to  rock art made by the  Neolithic and the Early Bronze Age people.

Boasting some of the finest examples of prehistoric art in England, this is a must see location for a meglithic odyssey!

Theories abound as to what the rock art means, celestial star maps, sun rises and even maps of earth energy have been mooted.

Whatever they mean, they offer an insight into the mindset of our prehistoric ancestors.

Northumberland rock art is amazingly complex. If you visit take a bottle of water and pour it over the art and then take photos as the water brings out the depth of the artwork.

Concentric stone circles with maze like images along site dots and circles makes this rock art special as shown below.
