Rock Art and Salmon Rivers?
Just reading a great little book about rock art on the NW coast of canada where they have cup marked boulders, cups and rings, and spirit figure carvings. Interestingly the carved rocks are linked with the seasonal salmon runs along the coast, where they enter river systems and at salmon fishing and spawning sites further in land. It made me wonder about the Yorkshire rock art located on the hills overlooking rivers like the Wharfe, Nidd, Washburn and Esk, which all were/are salmon + trout rivers. Are there any rivers in other areas that could be added to this list?
