Miscellanea

There are actually three passage tombs here, all of different designs.

B1 is a round chamber (2m diam) with walls made up by orthostats.

B2 is possibly cruciform. Hard to tell.

B3 had dry stone walls and a corbelled roof.

The carved bowl in B1 is 2m wide, 1m deep and .5m tall ... and beautiful.

There is also a later cist burial.
