Investigators made their first expedition on to a wild and windy Rombalds Moor in a project to capture the images from hundreds of ancient carved stones.

Volunteers will spend the next three years investigating more than 300 carved stones scattered across Rombalds Moor.

As well as detailed written records of the ancient carvings, the teams of five will use photogrammetry techniques to create 3D computerised images.
