Monument record MDR12250 - Possible cup marked boulder, Stanage, Eyam Moor, Eyam

Type and Period (1)

Protected Status/Designation

  • None recorded

Full Description

The raised half of the flat upper face of a small earthfast boulder has a cluster of 10 apparent cupmarks. The boulder lays only a few metres north-west of the Stanage barrow with its fine example of a cup marked stone. However, the possibility that the cups on the earthfast boulder are the product of natural erosion cannot be discounted; a second boulder nearby has many irregular hollows of various sizes that are probably to be interpreted in this way.
