Burial cairns as rock-art symbols?
here's a link to an interesting picture of the cairn field at Joelahtme in Estonia http://www.sea.ee/lehed/eci/east.html It might seem a long way away but Knox noted a remarkably similar site near Ravenscar on the North York Moors before it was destroyed in the early 1800's. Note also some details about the cup marked sliding stone at Kostivere- where sliding bare bottomed down the stone could help get a woman pregnant. http://www.rebala.ee/en/?Places_of_interest:Sliding_cultstone Mr Fitz said he used to slide down a large sloping rock at the Wainstones when he was a lad ......hmmmm
