New mobile website helps walkers discover the mysteries of Rock Art in Northumberland.

Researchers at Newcastle University have developed a new mobile website designed to help people discover the rich variety of rock art in Northumberland.
Archaeologists have worked side-by-side with digital media experts to share information about the famous stones, which can be tricky to locate even with a GPS due to their flat markings, which are hard to spot among thick vegetation and overcast conditions.

Information can be found here on Culture24

Step back in time and meet our ancient ancestors by cave painting or by designing your own stone circle. Linked to the BBC’s Hands On History –The Ancients and the Stonehenge: henge diggers exhibition.
