Rosie’s Coffee Break – When a book makes you think more about…..The Duddo Stones #MondayBlogs

How often do you read a book and it makes you think more about one of the book subjects or storylines and it has your brain cells all fired up with questions and curiosity?

Coffee Break

When I read The Cunning Women’s Cup, much of the storyline was written about the Duddo stones.

I was interested to find out more and one day visit them. The Duddo stones are found in Northumberland, Uk, only 4 miles from the Scottish border. Only 5 of the original 7 stones remain, they are believed to be around 4000 years old. Some of the stones have “cup” marks on them. Mystery surrounds these stones which are also known locally as “The Singing Stones”. Deep grooves in the stones and the harsh winds may well produce eerie sounds thought to be singing.

What book have you read recently which inspired you to do more research?

  1. Hi! I find I do more research about people when I read books. The Paris Wife had me researching more about Hemingway and I read The Moveable Feast, which was interesting. More recently, I researched Beryl Markham after reading Circling the Sun. 🙂

  2. How I wish I could have met you at the Stones Rosie, such a lovely spot. I did not know they were locally called The Singing Stones.
