Summary[edit]

Description

This is a scan from a transparency which I took in the mid 1970s. It shows one of the two very similar small labyrinth patterns cut into the cliff face at Rocky Valley, Tintagel, Cornwall, England. They are of unknown date. The Bronze Age has been suggested, but it is equally possible that they were made by workmen at the nearby mill (now ruined). [But see below.] (Simon Garbutt, 8 Nov 2005) This scan is in the Public Domain (however, I retain ownership and copyright of the original transparency and any higher-resolution scans derived from it). SiGarb 19:06, 8 November 2005 (UTC) [Given the softness of the rock and the clarity of the carving, and the absence of any clear evidence for great age, it is more likely that the Rocky Valley labyrinths date from the 18th or 19th century; other carvings at the mill are more firmly datable to the last few centuries. See Abegael Saward, "The Rocky Valley Labyrinths", Caerdroia 32 (2001), p. 21–27. -- Elphion (talk) 13:37, 21 March 2012 (UTC)]
