This revised edition is an accumulation of two decades of fieldwork and research and presents a comprehensive account of the prehistoric rock art in the North York Moors, the last major site of rock art in Northern England to have been recorded. The geographical location of sites and correlation to other moorland monuments is discussed but its focus remains the rock art on Fylingdales Moor near Ravenscar where, following a devastating moorland fire in 2003, over 200 sites were recorded including the stunning Linear Marked Stone.
A comprehensive gazetteer of all known rock art sites within the North York Moors area is included together with a section on current recording techniques including laser and Photogrammetry. Two appendices also provide details of recent major discoveries within the North York Moors area.
Paul Brown, independent archaeologist, has discovered many of Northern England's finest examples of prehistoric rock art as well as those in many other areas of the UK including Cumbria, Durham, Northumberland and Scotland. In 1999 together with his wife Barbara he discovered and recorded the unique rock art panel at Copt Howe in Great Langdale in the Lake District.
Graham Chappell is an independent rock art researcher who has been engaged in the study and recording of sites within the North York Moors over many years to which he has added numerous new discoveries.
