The photo for this week’s prompt was taken on the slopes of Fin Cop. You can see these rocks from a great distance, but it is not until you get closer that you see the Giant whose story still lingers in folklore… or see the faces in the fractured rocks. We have had nothing but difficulty with this site. It took ages before we finally managed to get as far as the Giant… we still haven’t found his rock in the stream and no-one seems to know where it is. Or if they do, they aren’t telling...
Where we would really like to get to is much higher, right on top of the hill… the site of the ancient hillfort of Fin Cop. The archaeology itself looks fascinating, though the only ‘digging’ I can do is online. Sadly, though, the site is on private land and every lead I have found and approached has ended in silence. Which just makes me more determined than ever to visit the site of this ancient and mysterious massacre...
We did manage to find the Giant, though, and the faces of his watchers gave us the cover for Scions of Albion, the third book in the Doomsday series.
