|Description ||Does somebody know where I can find this stone in Scotland?|
|Andy B |
| OK, what's the story here then?|
| In two weeks I visit Scotland and I am in search of the place of this stone.|
Does it ring a bell by somebody in this forum
| It must ring someone's bell - it already has an 'excellent' vote!|
| Is it just me or doesn't this look like a door socket? and the stone to the right appears to have modern looking bolster marks, is this someone's garden path?|
| srt [x2] doesn't stand for 'some real teasing', does it?|
| Probably it is teasing. I really don't know. The person who send this picture told me that it is very old and the local people do not know what is the meaning of this.|
I also thought it was a hole to close a fence or something.
I studied all the cuprings in the internet but couldn't find it. So I hope somebody can help me.
| I still do not know where this is.|
I know it has to be at the Orkneys. Probably one of the brochs.
But which one?
| I now know where it is from|
You can find this stone in the Midhowe Broch on the Orkneys

| It is visible in this picture:|
| I saw holes like this in Sardinian rock tombs and were supposed to be door hinge sockets. I am posting my Sardinian pictures over the next week.|
