Rhendhoo (Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork) — Miscellaneous

Dear Croagh, shall I tell Sinead McCartan (the excavator) about your flints or not? No, I don't think I will. She probably had enough of her own as it was!

The Spiral Stone (Standing Stones) — Fieldnotes

I visited again on 8th June 2004 and got some half-decent photos. I think an overcast day is best! The spirals do not seem to be as clear as they were several years ago, when I took my previous photos.
Please note this site is by the edge of the road, and not one and a half fields up the hill as the latest digitised footpath map shows!

Dalby Mountain Burial Mounds (Round Barrow(s)) — Miscellaneous

The OS map shows both the sites described by Kammer, there is possibly a third mound just 2 metres to the west of the heather covered mound. The SMR describes them all as Dalby Mountain Burial Mound, and then gives them A, B & C suffixes. I prefer to call them Dalby Mountain South West Mounds A & B. The land is owned by the Manx Wildlife Trust and is publically accessible.

On the other photograph, the brown cow does indeed stand in front of the mound, which I call Dalby Mountain (west of road). This is on private land, and was excavated in the past and cremation urns recovered.

The Spiral Stone (Standing Stones) — Fieldnotes

The last time I visited The Spiral Stone (October 2003) I couldn't see anything carved on it either, but I knew I had photographed it a few years previously, and now realise that the spiral carving is very low down on the stone. I think you also need the right sort of light. I have posted my photo of the spiral carving from several years ago so that you will know why the stone is so called!
