Some images and a brief history of this copied swastika and associated cup-markings will be published in due course on the Rombalds Moor Project website.Other important cup-and-ring petroglyphs that are worth visiting on the moor with unique carved symbols in them include the Hanging Stones, the Idol Stone, Haystack Rock, Badger Stone and many many more.
All interpenetrate.” (Images of the popularised ‘modern’ swastika – a huge misnomer – can be found on several church bells in Yorkshire, where they were used as charms to protect against lightning, following in the mythic fashion of Thor.was an important component of the primary woodland cover of many lowland areas in northern and central Europe.High values recorded in mid-Holocene pollen diagrams are generally followed by well-defined declines.The northern line points directly at Simon’s Seat on the northern skyline.The eastern axis points directly at Almscliffe Crag, above which the equinox sun seems to rise from here.(For those of you who aint into using psychedelics at sites, a good overview of this idea is in Erich Neumann’s [although there’s no reference to this symbol] and which should be read by anyone pretending an interest in the nature of the archaic mind.
It’s a good work on the psychology of the Dreamtime.) As some local Ilkley folk are probably aware, a copy of the Swastika Stone carving was executed in the latter-half of the 19th century, probably by a local chap called Ambrose Collins, not far from the original swastika at the edge of the woodland.
For the alignment fanatics, check out the alignment from Twelve Apostles to here: on the date of the last major lunar standstill (occurrent every 18.6 years), the moon set over the cairn at Lanshaw Lad.
It wasn’t until I got home and checked the extension of this moonset line, that I realised if you follow it further along the course, you hit the Swastika Stone bang on!
Anthropogenic activity can account for the remainder.
rarely recovers from low values after anthropogenic declines, suggesting such declines have the potential to elucidate patterns in the destruction of primary woodland across lowland Britain. BP few declines are recorded suggesting a link between clearance activity and climate change.
Though this is probably just a coincidence (we do have hundreds of cup-and-rings on these moors, so it’s bound to hit one or more of them). In traditional cultures and early cosmogenic patterns the world over, the cosmos itself emerged from the ’round’, the singular, the point, or uroboros — and this is what this Swastika Stone appears to represent here: the cosmos emerging from the singularity, giving birth to the world and the four cardinal points.
