is quite lovely. Via the Guardian on August 1, 2008:
… the English carvings were made in the Neolithic and bronze age eras, between about 3,500 and 6,000 years ago.
One type of ancient remain Britain is not famous for, however, is rock art. It is to France and Spain that lovers of stone age cave art make their pilgrimages. A website about to be launched by English Heritage aims to change that. In England alone, it reveals, there are 2,500 known pieces of rock art, and more to be discovered. The new England’s Rock Art (ERA) website is part of an effort to catalogue, preserve, and popularise these mysterious markings.
