i have a few questions.
what's the ancient geography of the area? how long has it been in its current state? was it at any time, under the ocean? is it part of an otherwise, under water mountain chain? when do geologists/archaeologists/anthropologists claim it was first populated by humans?
[edit on 23-1-2009 by undo]
The area has been modified by human activity since prehistoric times when people built cairns and cleared the original forest. Mining has taken place in the area since Roman times and there are still many shafts of disused lead, zinc, silver and coal mines dotting the area.
with clustered and more isolated Bronze Age burial and ritual monuments
conspiracy emergency over, i found out they are actually cuts in the heather to enable new shoots to grow.
