Experience Rock Art
The majority of rock art panels remain in situ, in the countryside, and may lie in the position in which they were originally carved. These are often wild and beautiful places with wonderful views. Why not take a day and explore some of our recommended rock art areas?
Explore rock art on your mobile phone when you are out and about in the Northumberland countryside. Three sites are covered: Lordenshaw near Rothbury, and Weetwood Moor and Dod Law, both near Wooler.
If you prefer not to get your boots muddy, you could choose to visit rock art 'in captivity'. Many small (and some quite large!) examples of rock art have been re-located to museums or other protected locations. Although removed from their original context these provide an opportunity to view rock art in more comfortable and more accessible surroundings.
Although the best way to experience rock art is 'in person', this is not always possible. This section provides a taster for the ‘armchair’ enthusiast. We hope it provides inspires you to find out more about the subject, and if you are able, to go out and enjoy it for real.
