There are 10 dolmens in the hills surrounding Espolla . None are oriented towards any solstice event and 8 are oriented towards a part of the horizon where the sun will never be seen to rise or set . This is one of the eight .
Discovered in 1881 .
A deposit of flint arrowheads was found in a small pit on the left hand side of the corridor . Other finds were remnants of a bronze awl and some pottery .
Fwiw declination of chamber is -29.8 , therefore close to major standstill .
Crap pic , but it does show the horizon before the trees blotted it out . Worth comparing with Thelonius' pic to see the changes 10 yrs approx can make .
This a one of the rare cases of a possible henge entrance orientation towards the winter solstice sun rise .
Discovered in the early 1970's. A Flint Knife and small amount of ceramics were found when excavated . Orientation of chamber and passage is 170 degrees and therefore not facing any solar or lunar set or rise .
