Notes: This was once considered as a possible Prehistoric Cist site – but closer examination shows this is feather and tare worked granite.

Acknowledgement: Dave Parks on Dartmoor Information Exchange Facebook Group noted this artefact. It is situated amid deep tussock grass.

Image Below: A close up of one of the pieces – there are clear ‘tare’ marks in the edge of this rock – suggesting that it is a ‘modern’ ‘worked’ granite as opposed to being a prehistoric cist edge.
