Poulnabrone Dolmen in Black and White by 


Dating to the Neolithic period, (4200 BC to 2900 BC) this portal tomb in the Burren is located between Corofin and Ballyvaughan and consists of a twelve foot tabular capstone supported by two slender portal stones and bordered by a nearby cairn. Excavations in 1985 discovered the remains of at least 22 adults and children buried in the tomb. It is one of county Clares biggest tourist attractions

    stunning POV, John! they say such structures were not meant to be tombs, but served, along with dolmens, megalyths and pyramids, as the unified global system of controlling tectonic processes and the weather
