|Description ||One of many cup and ring marks in the area of the main boulders, this one with quite a large cup with an eroded ring, but still fairly distinct. Only a couple of metres from the main panel of art on a smaller rough boulder.|
|But is it real ot natural mineral erosion? AS|

|These cup marks look real to me. I haven't come across any information to indicate how the cups could be formed by mineral errosion. The cups at Robin Hood's Stride look like natural errosion, and they are more rounded, in much softer sandstone. This stone is much harder and would keep the carved shapes for longer.
I would love to know what these cups were all about. Do you think they were the product of some sort of stone smoothing or sharpening process?|
