A great, semi-buried stone, grafittied and otherwise ignored. The basin is huge, after the soil and broken glass have been removed. Bullauns always fascinate me; how were the basins carved? How long did it take? Were they worked with a denser, harder stone? As is mentioned in Monumental About Pre-historic Dublin (I wouldn't have found the stone without it!) it would be great to see it raised and the basin enabled to collect rainwater again. ryaner Posted by ryaner
