Ancient stone artwork discovered in Scotland

Prehistoric rock art has been discovered by an amateur archaeologist in Perthsire, Scotland.

Mr Currie discovered a piece of rock which has more than 90 cup marks, which are circular depressions in the stone.

Some of the cups have rings around them and a number of linear grooves can also be seen, with some still showing the individual blows of craftsmens’ tools. Similar discoveries have been made in the area, but it is unusual to find so many markings on the one stone.

  1. I’ll bet it’s a map of the stars…what better way to commemorate a specific time for future generations that to recreate the positions of the stars at that particular time? They may not have had a calendar system.
