The Proleek Dolmen :: Shared Description

This one of the best preserved cromlechs on the island of Ireland. It marked the entrance into a portal tomb and was built by Neolithic farming folk some 5000 years ago. The Neolithic people first cremated their dead and then placed the ashes in vessels into the tomb together with flint and stone tools. The capstone weights in excess of 40 tonnes and its erection obviously called for great engineering skills.
