For all you rock art aficionados we have just taken delivery of a massive cup and ring marked boulder found in Ponteland. It came from an archaeology trial trench but this is highly unlikely to have been its original location. These carved rocks are a feature of the Neolithic and Bronze Age periods in Britain and are usually found in the landscape. If you want a closer look ours is currently located by the Claremont road entrance to the Great North Museum.
