Ceresa 5 (Engraved stone) — Fieldnotes

This small engraved rock are very close to Ceresa 3 cup marked stone, in the same place.
The engraves remember me the rock art of the Valley of Wonder, on Mount Bego (France).

Big Flat Rock (Natural Rock Feature) — Fieldnotes

I found this rock at the end of Strada Megalitica.
This big stone have about 4 m diameter, but the particularity who attract me are his position.
The rock are on the middle of a tree-circle. I believe that rock have an altar function.
Very suggestive and peaceful place.
