Digging for Britain: Prehistoric find shines light on Neolithic life


The discovery of a Neolithic era settlement is helping shed new light on how people lived on the shores of Lough Foyle some 5,000 years ago.

Fodderty 2 (Standing Stone / Menhir) — Fieldnotes

All looked quiet as we approached the second and more taller, standing at 2.2m, of the Fodderty Standing Stones. We walked along the field from the east stone and peered through the trees. Like its near neighbour the protective iron rail had long gone.

Sadly the large cup mark was hidden from our vantage point. As we were about to jump the fence a wedding party appeared in cars and promptly had photographs taken in front of the site.

Being a nice person I didn't do the who's that guy waving in the background sketch.

Fodderty (Standing Stones) — Fieldnotes

The iron protection bar described in 1943 has been gone a long time, the stone now appears to be in a builder's backyard.

We parked at Milnain on the A834, clambered through a wood and jumped a stream to reach fields a short distance north from the road. From there we had the easy walk to the first of the Fodderty Standing Stones.

It sits at 1.6m high and stands all by itself except for the assorted building materials.

Arcan Mains (Cairn(s)) — Fieldnotes

After crossing the Orrin Bridge (A832) we walked up to Arcan Mains Farm, past the barns until a gate leading north. The remains of the cairn can be seen amongst the trees after climbing a gentle slope.

Not much remains, the bulk of the cairn has been removed, kerbs have been scattered, only a barely visible outline of the once 16m site can be seen. Still what's left is protected by a fence so no more damage can be done.

An almost site. Good location.

Still doing the music, following that team and getting lost in the hills! (Some Simple Minds, Glasvegas, Athlete, George Harrison, Empire Of The Sun, Riverside, Porcupine Tree, Nazareth, The Avalanches, Public Service Broadcasting on the headphones, good boots and sticks, away I go!)
