in "Prehistoric rock art revealed" by Julie Hemmings:
"Experts are still grappling with the origins and meaning of these abstract carvings, believed to be the work of Neolithic and Early Bronze Age people between 6,000 and 3,500 years ago. Discoveries by Newcastle University archaeologists include a collection at Goatstones, near Wark, Northumberland, where a haul of 14 carved stones was found. Elsewhere in the county, a farmer alerted the team to seven previously unrecorded panels on his land. Stones with similar cup and ring carvings have been found elsewhere, including Ilkley Moor and the Chesterfield area of Derbyshire. Last year English Heritage archaeologists discovered a carved stone, with unusual geometric carvings they think might be a map, near Fylingdales on the North York Moors. It was exposed after a major blaze on the moors in September 2003."Numerous books by Beckensall are available through bookstores: e.g. Prehistoric Northumberland at
