A 5,000 year old prehistoric carved stone drum found 240 miles from Stonehenge in Yorkshire, is one of the most elaborately decorated objects of this period found anywhere in Britain and Ireland according to the British Museum. Its style echoes that of objects from Stonehenge and related sites. Seemingly created as a sculpture or talisman the drum was found alongside the grave of three children who were buried close together, touching or holding hands. The carvings suggest that communities across Britain and Ireland shared "artistic styles, and probably beliefs, over remarkable distances”.
