|Description ||Poulnabrone Portal Tomb, Co. Clare (M236003):
Situated in the spectacular stark scenery of the limestone uplands of the Burren, the sleek appearance of the dolmen at Poulnabrone (due to the nature of the locally available limestone slabs) makes it an especially fine and attractive example of a portal dolmen. In 1986 excavations at Poulnabrone unearthed the bones of 14 adults and 6 children, pieces of pottery and stone artifacts which led to the conclusion that the tomb was in use about 2500 years BC. |
