Children at Arthur's stone

Spotlight: Arthur's Stone

Arthur’s Stone, a Neolithic chambered tomb, is over 5,000 years old. Today only the large stones of the inner chamber remain, though these were once covered by a long earthen mound.

This summer (2022), archaeologists have been granted rare permission to excavate part of the site.
