Toul an Urz

Allee-Couverte

Fieldnotes

Toul an Urz means the 'bear hole', surely a reference to when our ursine friends still roamed the nearby forest.

One of the three remain capstones, the thinnest and largest, slopes right down to the ground. Whether it originally did so is hard to say – unlikely I'd have thought.

Traditionally, girls wanting a husband would slide down the stone. Surely they'd have been better off speed-dating?!
