    Its an article written by Simon Crook called 'Till The Cows Come Home' 1. Towards a Natural History of Megaliths. Well written article by Mr Crook looking at animal rock carvings near the Cow and Calf, Ilkley, in Wales at Buwch a'r Lio, Ceredigion, The White Cow of Crichie, Buchan, Scotland, and Pedra do Mouros, Galicia, and other sites. The author suggests these carvings were made to aid the milk giving properties of these animals - from which "milking" legends have arisen at sites such as Mitchell's Fold and Callanish stone circles and eleswhere. The author says "This confluence of stone, water and animals in these narratives is a discernible element in a wide array of rock-art traditions worldwide". Nothing to worry about Paul, this is a very interesting and, well-written article, that will be continued in the Spring issue. Get yourself a copy. Some noteable authors write for the magazine including Nick Ford, Mike Haigh and John Palmer. There is also a 'Having Your Say' section with letters from the likes of Nigel Pennick. You will have heard of him, I'm sure. bounce
