| Great to have a picture of this awesome findings. The colours are beautiful. Was the Rillaton Gold Cup found inside the chamber? |

| Sorry, I later noticed the link to the EXTRACT FROM ENGLISH HERITAGE'S RECORD OF SCHEDULED MONUMENTS, where my question already is answered. I was not aware it is a bronze age cist. First thought it is a neolithic tomb , where gold findings are even more unusual. |

Your photo is fine Martyn. I always think it's better to have something.. (some of mine have not been great, esp indoors).. than nothing.
I'm getting to grips with my digi camera, and handling the images, now, and results are much sharper.
