The Carvings On The Cove Stones Of Avebury

My colleagues Dan Rendell and Simon Banton have been noting strange figures on the sides of the Cove Stones at Avebury.

A wheel, mill stone, the sun, or is it a doughnut?

And can you spot the hare?

Natural or carved?

  1. Yes, indeed there are images carved into the Avebury monoliths, including the wonderful hare on the bottom two images you show. I have a gallery showing many of the Avebury carvings, and I invite you to see these for yourself at
