Gelligaer Rock Art Project blog now online

Following the exciting discovery last summer on Gelligaer Common of a piece of prehistoric art – a cup-marked stone, the Glamorgan-Gwent Archaeological Trust and Groundwork Caerphilly decided that it would be a good idea if we looked to see if there are any more.
Archaeologists from the Trust along with help from local residents will carry out a survey on the Common, with the specific aim of looking for cup-marked stones.  GGAT are also trying to find out more about a cup-marked stone, called the Marrying Stone, found in 1935 in Bargoed.
Visit the blog at to find out all about this exciting project and the discoveries it makes.
