Mystery shapes on the forest floor

Mystery shapes on the forest floor

Strange decorated holes have been found,  deliberately cut in to the forest floor.  Who did these and why? At present we have no idea. Ideas include ancient rituals, pet burials, GCSE Art projects or a simple hoax. If you know or can help with a suggestion please get in touch.

  

The main hole is about 1 metre long and is lined with sticks and filled with moss.

On a serious note this area of the forest was recently designated as a Scheduled Ancient Monument, with Bronze Age, Roman and Saxon remains, and it is illegal to disturb the surface in any way that may cause damage. The features highlighted in these images will be removed in two weeks time and in the meantime we hope to make contact with their creator.
