|Description ||Le Pinacle is a huge natural outcrop of red granite under which runs a 300mm seam of Dolerite. The Dolerite was mined in the Neolithic & Bronze Age for making polished stone axeheads which have turned up all over western Europe. In front you can just make out 2 Bronze Age parallel walls and a Romano Celtic temple incorporated in a Neolithic eclosure. You can pick up worked Neolithic flints incl. transverse arrow heads on the nearby excavation spoil heap.|
|Dave, I agree with thebean. This site lends itself to the possibility of further field work, something which is being considered for the next Archaeology Safari to Jersey, early in 2005.|
