Ballin Tagart (Reconstruction) (Court Tomb)

Irish Megaliths


This page includes a good photo of the tomb from the Museum and a short description. On the same web site the County Antrim page describes Ballin Tagart:
A four-chambered tomb, originally from Ballintaggart in county Armagh, with a shallow forecourt of 4 orthostats with a good part of the cairn and kerb surviving, has been erected on the far side of the Ulster Museum (just beyond the Queen's University and overlooking the Botanic Gardens). A good overhead view of the tomb may be had from the museum's cafeteria - though in recent years the monument has become overgrown and is now surrounded by a hideous fence.

Alderley Edge (Ancient Mine / Quarry)

The National Trust


A page from the National Trust web site describing this, "dramatic red sandstone escarpment, with impressive views."

Maen-y-Parc 'A' (Standing Stone / Menhir)

Megalithic Research Wales: Glynsaithmaen


A page from Megalithic Research Wales about Maen-y-Parc 'A' (under the name Glynsaithmaen) with access ratingings etc but not much of a description. There is a photo though.

Dyffryn Stones (Ring Cairn)

Llys-y-Fran to Rosebush Walk (PDF)


The above is a link to a publication on the Pembrokeshire Greenways web, available in PDF (Portable Document Format). It describes a walk between Llys-y-Fran and Rosebush.

By using the first part of the walk (either as intended or in reverse) you can get to the Budloy Stone and Dyffryn Stones.

Falkner's Circle (Stone Circle)

A useful page about Falkner's Circle, including a photograph, a quote from Mr Falkner (who discovered it in 1840) and a link to the report from the 2002 excavation.

Carn Meini (Rocky Outcrop)

Trefach Campsite: Panorama


This page is from the Trefach Campsite web site and contains amongst other things a panorama of the view from Carn Meini (the page calls it Caermeini or Carn-Meynen depending on the mood of the author!).

This is by no means an excellent example of a panorama, but it's the only one of Carn Meini I'm aware of. Java support is necessary if you want to see the view.

Winterbourne Monkton (Churchyard) (Standing Stone / Menhir)

Mill Barrow Multimap Link


Here's a Multimap link showing where Mill Barrow once stood (SU094722).

I live in a small Welsh seaside town on the west coast. As well as being well placed for visiting the local sites, it's relatively easy to get to sites in south Wales, north Wales and the borders.

If you'd like to use one of the photos I've posted on this site please contact the TMA Eds who'll pass the message on (ed@themodernantiquarian.com).

Some of my favourite prehistoric sites:
Avebury (England)
Calanais (Scotland)
Castlerigg (England)
Dolgamfa (Wales)
Gavrinis (France)
Kernic (France)
Pentre Ifan (Wales)
La Roche-aux-Fées (France)
Stones of Stennes (Scotland)
Wayland's Smithy (England)
