Entrance Grave


Jeannette Ratclifffe in ‘Scilly’s Archaeological Heritage’ (Twelveheads Press, 1995) gives the following info. “An oval shaped cairn built out from the slope incorporating at least three natural rocks, is revetted by an almost complete kern of large orthostats (21 visible) with a chamber extending for much of its length. The sides are of slabs set on edge, with some coursed walling. Five capstones remain, two still in place.” pure joy Posted by pure joy
