Milfield North / Miscellaneous by Chance

Hi Chance,

Believe it or not I found the six arrowheads back in 1975 (at a ripe age of 17).

Myself and Prof Harding from Newcastle Uni were the last ones on site as the tractors began ploughing around us.

The Prof asked me to hack out a post hole as quickly as possible and out came the arrowheads.

That was the last time I went on a dig as I joined the Army.

Eathorne Menhir / Link by pure joy

It was a sad story. The farm was bought by a "born-again" Baptist who wanted no "pagan idols" on his land, so he tore down the stone, breaking a few inches off the top, and dumped it in the nearby hedge, covering it in chicken wire, around which weeds grew and climbed, so hiding it from sight. The stone was not a Scheduled Ancient Monument, so the law could not be brought to bear on the culprit, who thankfully sold the place and moved on, so allowing its rescue. Posted by craig weatherhill

The mountains on the skyline are the Rhinog range, they've gone appreciably further up the list after this weekend. Moel y Gest will be calling first though. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

No photoshop trickery or anything. I simply found I had taken two shots about 15 months apart from exactly the same spot. The cairn/ skyline profiles match pretty perfectly. I'd love to say I'd planned it... but I didn't! Pure serendipity! Howburn Digger Posted by Howburn Digger

I hope they're right, because the ancient Irish have a lot to live up to already, and if it's proved that, say, the ancient Palestinians got there first, well I don't know how us modern ones will cope.

;-) Sorry Moss, so much wrong with that story.

I was wondering what those were,
Your getting closer, there's one or two places I feel inclined to get to before the path takes you there.
It's a fabulous place, as I'm sure you'll see one day.

Blimey crikey there's some great views from these.

We were just about creeping onto the far right of your photo late on Saturday with very sore feet, you could probably see the blisters from here.
