Between a rock and a hard place


Display of cup and ring-marked stones in the basement of the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh.  The lower stone is from the actually-existing village of Lamancha, 12 miles East of Little Sparta; behind it, partly obscured by the Lamancha stone, is the cist cover from Wester Yardhouses, 2 miles west of Little Sparta.  Little Sparta cannot be seen.
