Another glorious day on Gelligaer Common! A few more people gathered today keen to finish off our original survey area. We covered all the remaining ground set out in the original project plan by lunchtime, which was fantastic! We even had time to show our volunteers the cup mark
Janine found last summer.
After lunch we expanded our area by beginning to walk over the area the other side of the road south of the car park. We didn’t spot any prehistoric rock art today but we did come across some markings that initially got me very excited (as it was me that spotted them!) that turned out to be mostly likely a trig-point carving. It was carved into a flat stone by the side of the north-south road, not quite what we were looking for but interesting none the less!
