Message....: I am researching petroglyphs comparable to the 'Swastika
Stone' on Ilkley Moor, West Yorkshire, England. It has been
compared to petroglyphs in Hoveriśs, Sweden (Fredsjo) and
in Carpene di Sellero, Italy (Anati). I am unable to get
hold of the relevant material in print, and I am searching
for images of these other swastika-related petroglyphs on
the internet. Anyone who could direct me straight to images
of these carvings on the web would save me a lot of time -
I've already searched extensively and had no luck.

Message....: Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren, wir mochte Sie mit diesem Schreiben herzlich um Ihren wissenschaftlichen Rat bitten: Vor ca. einem Jahr wurde in einer Oberallgæuer Hangwiese der abgebildete Felsen ausgegraben, weil er die bæuerliche Arbeit storte. Zur großen ?berraschung aller fanden sich auf dem Findling eingeschlagene/gekratzte Schriftzeichen. Der Stein wurde geborgen und vor dem Heimathaus aufgestellt. Wie ein ungelostes Rætsel liegt er nun dort, weil niemand die Zeichen auch nur grob datieren konnte, geschweige denn etwas uber ihren Ursprung oder ihre Bedeutung weiß.

If anyone knows about this please let me know.
