3rd 3D model of Rock Art from around Bryn Celli Ddu: revealing the work of prehistoric artists

As part of the Bryn Celli Ddu landscape project, we have been surveying the surrounding landscape and have identified 8 new cupmarked rock art outcrops over the last two years. Adam Stanford has been busy making 3d models of all the outcrops and we can reveal the second in a series as we countdown to the third season of excavations on Anglesey.

On this outcrop we have identified:

  1. A cluster of cup-marks, possibly forming a Rosette.

For viewing the 3D model use a mouse with a wheel to zoom, left click and hold to rotate and right click to move. Try rotating the model in full screen mode and switch rendering option to Matcap or wireframe (bottom right). A good Internet connection is required along with a compatible Browser such as Google Chrome.
