 Record Description This finely marked cup and ring stone was, when last seen was within the garden of a house at Dalton Village and has since been moved to the Bowes Museum. This small rock almost certainly would have been found within the remains of a burial cairn , probably a cairn located on the high moorland above Gayles. Small 'portable' rocks like this are characteristic of decorated stones which are deposited within the body of burial cairns of Late Neolithic and Early Bronze Age Date.
