Cheryl Straffon in 'The Earth Mysteries Guide to Ancient Sites on the Scilly Isles' (Meyn Mamvro - 1995, revised 1999) gives the following information "to the west [of Tean] is the small inlet of Old Man which has a ruined entrance grave in a mound with kerb, orientated E-W to the equinox (at SV90491631). On the west side of the inlet the sea uncovered a cist (at SV905163) which was excavated in 1933 and 2 bronze brooches found." pure joy Posted by pure joy
