Those who like to go walking in the Yorkshire Dales may discover more about the human history of the landscape via a revamped website produced by the national park authority.

Its Out of Oblivion site has been substantially updated, with much of this owing to the work carried out by archaeologist Yvonne Luke as part of her PHD.

Those climbing Ingleborough may explore one of the sites she investigated - previously thought to be a hill fort used by the Brigantes as they resisted the Roman occupation of Britain.

Instead, it has turned out to be much older and was used originally for religious rituals.

Other new information on the site concerns the many bronze age burial cairns to be found in the area.

Senior historic environment officer at the authority Robert White warned walkers could "unwittingly damage" the cairns by adding cairns, noting this has happened in cases such as one by Bolton Abbey.

The national park has a total of 203 scheduled ancient monuments.
