Prominent cairns or standing stones

Prominent cairns and standing stones are often visible from stone rows. At least 142 stone rows are know where these types of archaeology can be seen from rows.  Clearly it is not possible to be certain that the rows were built at a time when these features were already in existence or that they were built at the same time or appeared in the landscape some time after the rows had already been abandoned. The balance of probability is however that in many instances the rows, cairns and standing stones formed part of a complex and inter-related landscape being slowly developed within a social and ritual framework. The elements that survive illustrate the sophisitication of the cultures that created them and represent the earliest attempts by people to impose themselves on their world.
