My old fashioned Norton Anti Virus 2003 blocks the access to the ads.ahds.ac.uk website. Is there perhaps a name, gridref and photo available?
Cheers,
Jan

Hi Jan
It's a 19th century paining of a stone with 5 cups on it , one with a groove. The stone was taken from a tomb at Sancreed in Cornwall
Grid ref is SW 422 296 although I can't find a reference for the tomb.
How do the Channel Isles get away with calling themselves part of Britain?

Hi guys,
I Wikipediated the following:
With the Isle of Man, the "bailiwicks"of Jersey and Guernsey are Crown dependencies of the British Crown. They form a federacy with the United Kingdom, collectively known as the British Isles."
Fine with me; sounds at least a bit British! Do they drive on the left there?
Cheers,
Jan
