Bronze Age cairns and Neolithic or Bronze Age cup marked stones, Snook Bank, Longframlington (Longframlington)
Between approximately 3000 and 6000 years ago, during either the Bronze Age or the Neolithic periods, people carved cup and ring marks on several rocks here. Between approximately 3000 and 4000 years ago, in the Bronze Age, people buried their dead in cairns which seem to cluster round the cup and ring marked stones. The cist was discovered and opened in 1823. Two pots were found, one of which can be seen today at Alnwick Castle Museum.
