Britain hides a remarkable native artistic tradition - mysterious rock carvings which date far back into the misty age of stone circles. In some parts of Scotland you can dig up the turf almost anywhere to find the ancient rocks beneath carpeted in these incredible glyphs. In this beautiful little book, artist and petroglyph hunter Chris Mansell discusses the possible purpose and meaning of these archaic and enigmatic markings, using his own drawings alongside exquisite rare old lithographs.
