Rocks and rock monuments
dot the Irish landscape.
Some are plain, some are inscribed. Carved rocks and stones on the emerald island show a repertoire of exclusively geometrical signs.
Some petroglyphs are considered to be maps of camps, burial mounts or wells. Others form integral parts of the sacred landscape. They are considered abodes of deities or otherworld beings. Stone monuments show the prehistoric people their place
in the cosmos.
