Giant's Ring


Come for a walk with me along a wooded path to a land of long ago.

The path is shadowed and curved.

It leads to The Giant's Ring, a neolithic burial site of an ancient tribal leader.


The Giant's Ring.

A panorama to give a sense of the size of this ancient site.  In the middle is the burial chamber.




It feels as though we have gone back into the distant past as we see the stone monument.





Thanks for coming along with me.

Linking with Good Fences 


and
Skywatch Friday.

Have a great day!

  8. Christine, I love these kind of places, there must be an underground entrance to the burial chamber from the vast burial site. Did you touch the stones? I was reminded of the TV series "Outlander" when I saw them,...forgive my over active imagination, they are not connected in any way!.:))

  21. That's really interesting. Kind of reminds me of going to the viking site in Newfoundland. I have both Norwegian and Swedish roots (along with my Irish ones of course) so it was of special interest to me. They have reconstructed buildings to show what the village might have looked like and how they actually did pretty well even in the winters. Of course, their home country was of a similar or even colder climate I guess. - Margy
