The Swastika Stone above Ilkley, Yorkshire

Ilkley Moor and Rombald’s Moor are noted for their Bronze Age rock markings. Most of these belong to the ‘cup and ring’ type. The swastika stone is exceptional, being identical to designs in Northern Italy and in Sweden, and is thought to be of a later date. However, what you see in the foreground is actually a Victorian copy – the original is a few feet away and rather less photogenic. Remember, don't go up 'baht'at'!
