|Description ||Cornwall SW 4269 3530
The 'Inscribed Stone' is 2m high. It probably dates from the Bronze Age but was inscribed around the 5th or 6th century CE to commemorate the death in battle of a royal warrior. The northern face bears the inscription 'RIALOBRANI CUNOVALI FILI' which in Cornish means 'Royal Raven son of the Glorious Prince'|
|Royality or Family has been buried together since the dawn of time. So why r you out here all alone? I wonder if someone were to have dug you up were you just the Princes faithful Bird, his means of comunication with home.|
| The inscription doesn't mean anything in Cornish; they are in fact Latinised versions of old Celtic names. (Forgive the pedantry, it's a hobby of mine!)|
