All steam ahead

Just over 2 months into the full recording phase and both teams are progressing well with in excess of 50 carvings having been recorded. The Blue Team completed recording in the Bingley Moor / East Morton area in November and have now moved onto the clusters around Green Crag Slack (above the Cow & Calf).  The Red Team, recording at the weekend, were unlucky to encounter several sessions where either the wind or rain curtailed recording, and were blown off the moor onto lower reaches around Stead.   However, this hasn’t prevent them from making good inroads into the masses of carvings around Burley Moor.

One of the surprises so far, is the number of new carvings (to the record) that have come to light. These new finds consist of mainly debateable single cups, but their locations amongst other more definite carvings may lend weight to them being artificial.
