That's 300 posts + the binned ones so time for my next question in my quest to learn more about rock art.

The rock art in Europe...does it follow in line with ours here with regard to style/quality/type? Is it possible or likely that the same 'hand' was responsible for some here and also over there? In other words, any evidence that a bloke who carved some there did the same here?




Very difficult to prove Roy even if true /possible .
There are some engravings I have mentioned in the past that are all small and distinctive and all within a radius of a couple of miles so may have been the same engraver but even that would be almost impossible to prove .


I've always found it odd that there are no representations of humans or animals here, but there are examples in Scandinavia.

Edit : I'm may be on shaky ground with the animals thing, I seem to remember a story about an engraving found in wales(?), but i'm pretty certain there has never been any human representation!
