Archaeology Notes

NS56SE 31 5721 6131.

At the S of a former wood, now covered by houses, stood a convex sandstone boulder, 1 1/2m by 1m by 3/4m. On its smooth but striated surface are: 2 cups-and-four-rings, 1 cup-and-three-rings and about 14 cups. The rings were probably all un-gapped, but are now much broken or flaked off. One figure has a radial groove from the inner ring. Greatest diameter - 52cm; carving depths up to 2cm. Now in Glasgow Art Gallery and Museum (Accession no: 02-78).
