    More Rock Art Discovered - test

    Post  Admin on Thu Aug 13, 2009 4:37 pm

    We were on Ilkley Moor again yesterday and were lucky to find a couple of previously undiscovered cup-marked stones. Nowt too special, design-wise. But it\s always good to locate some new un's. Any rate - this message is just a 'tester' to see if I can suss out how to upload images on the Forum. We didn't manage to get any decent images of the stones - bad light, excessive cover, unprepared, etc. We're going back up in a few days, nice n' prepared! Hopefully we'll get some better images of the carvings then. In the meantime, here's a crappy preview -

    Hey!
    Great! Where is it? When you are ready to disclose I'll have a stroll up with my camera. All I need to do then is discover how to upload pics without making a total B's of it and winding up back on the desktop.
    Good hunting and blessings.

    We're going back up later this week to 'excavate' a little and get some better images, aswell as checking to see if others are nearby. They're in an odd spot - not where any have previously been located. But there were some other peculiar archaeological remains adjacent aswell. Wasn't too sure wot to make of the others: could've been ruined cairns, bitsa ruined walling, twas hard to say for sure. Certainly evidences showing that humans were up to summat there; possibly even medieval - though there's no records of anything on this particular part of the moor. This is one of the things I've always liked about wandering aimlessly off-path - you never know what you might come across! Smile We'll stick the locations, grid-refs & stuff once we've had a better mooch round.

    Like I said elsewhere: click on 'Host an image' tag, upload it, then click 'Host it' & it gives y' 3 options. Click & copy 'Image url' (don't click the 'upload' button!). Then go to 'Image' tag, copy your source and OK it. That should do it. If you gerrit wrong, try again. You'll work it out (c'mon - you've ogtta be able to do - I managed! Surprised )

    Cheers - Paul

    Shit! I need a week in recovery now. Problem is I don't understand the gobbledegook. I shall take advice from a young person and try again.
