Test Pitting at Rock Art near Kirkcudbright

With so many examples of prehistoric rock art around Kirkcudbright, why not help Can You Dig It test the ground around a couple to see what we might find?
There are over 3,000 of these types of carvings across Scotland, and a large concentration of them can be found in Dumfries and Galloway with around 80 near Kirkcudbright alone! They date back several millennia to the Neolithic period (4100-2500BC) but what they represent remains a mystery.

For two days this June, Can You Dig It is teaming up with some members of the Kirkcudbright Rock Art Team to investigate the ground around a couple of these sites and look for any artefacts or structures that might tell us more about their location. It’ll also be a great chance to spend some time looking up close at these beautiful carvings!
