| Welsh Cromlechs Stukeley engraving |
Unless otherwise stated, this image is the copyright of the submitter. Contact them for permission to reproduce it.
|Description ||The caption reads:'KROM LECHEN' and the engravings are split into three sections. I think the writing is in Welsh. This is marked '93 2d'.
An engraving from Richard Stukeley's : 'Itinerarium Curiosum: or, An Account of the Antiquitys and Remarkable Curiositys in Nature or Art, Observ'd in Travels thro' Great Britain.'|

|Which sites have we got here do you think?|
|Andy - A wild guess, after puzzling for hours! - the second one down could possibly be Carreg Samson?? (Kannel sounds like kennel, but it's not St Lythans). The bottom one is similar to Tinkinswood, but the one just above to its right is more like Lligwy on Anglesey! (Where's Bondruse??) Can TimP speak Welsh?!|
|The top one is surely Ystumcegid or Ystum Cegid Isaf (depending on which name you want to use)|
|Trying to give this pic a better home! I may contact the contributor to see if they can provide more transcript of the characters. The script is too faint for me to make out reliably. I don't speak Welsh - but a place name would be very helpful!|

|I posted these - the 'contributor' won't have them as they were selling them on ebay. They allowed me to reproduce their scans. This may be reproduced in Neil M's Stukely Illustrated book which someone may have, or download and play liberally with the contrast and sharpening.|
