|Description ||Discovered in 1870 amongst flint arrow points, in the vicinity of the (now
lost) Idol Rock on Adel Moor. A thin sandstone slab (30 x 34 inches), almost
square. Central area cut away, indefinate peck marks. Curious diamond
pattern. Cowling (1946) reckoned it was once part of a cist lid.
Paul Bennett noted the simularity of the carving to 'an ancient carved rock
from Cairnbaan, Argyll.'
There are the remnants of an important Romano-British settlement nearby and
the remains of three altars, one 'dedicated to the Goddess Brigantia' and a
'stone inscribed with a phallus', were reported by Faull and Moorhouse
