    Human Hand Carving on Rombalds Moor... Empty Human Hand Carving on Rombalds Moor...

    Here's a new one: we were out again t'other day, checking on some prehistoric walling and the circles we'd found on the moors, when we came across this very odd-looking carving of a human hand on the vertical face of one of the rocks. It's very distinct and appears to be man-made. Although petroglyphs of human hands are common in other cultures on Earth, they're rare as fuck in the UK. Wot do people reckon?

    We're going back up here again in the coming weeks with an old geologist from school to see what he reckons, just in case Nature had some hand in the design.
