Standing Stone / Menhir


A recent excavation at Waulkmill produced quite a variety of finds from Neolithic to Iron Age .
Pics are of ,a ring cairn probably central to the original stone circle . Bronze Age decorated pottery (in finds tray ) .There was also a sherd of Neolithic carinated bowl . Cremated bone just outside the area of the stone circle . The reason for the standing stone pic ,from the same spot as Drewbhoys is that this one shows some of the packing i.e. a tyre . The stone had been moved from it's previous site , which was unlikely to have the original site either .
