Prehistoric sites worldwide Old Viney Museum (Corbridge) Submitted by Anne T on Tuesday, 17 September 2019 (136 reads) England The Viney Museum in Appletree Lane, Corbridge was established in 1928, but by the early 1970s had been closed down, and was sold, along with the adjacent old school building. The new owner converted both buildings to private houses, retaining the museum as their own dwelling. The contents of the museum were included in the sale. The collection incorporates carved stones and medieval cross slabs from St. Andrew's Church in the village centre, and the adjacent Vicar's Pele. At one time these had been stored in the vicarage garden before "finding their way" to the museum, where they remain on display in the garden of the current cottage.

Prestegårdsskogen Gravfelt Submitted by kenntha88 on Tuesday, 17 September 2019 (101 reads) Scandinavia This site consists of several burial mounds and stone settings divided in two main groups inside a local pine forest, which covers a round, low hillside. One group is located right next to a small footpath, it contains 3 burial mounds and two stone settings. The burial mounds are easy to see while the stone settings are mostly overgrown and with just the top of the stones visible. The barrows are around 12-15 metres across and 1 to 1.5 metres in height. One is just touching the small path.

St Edwards well Submitted by HOLYWELL on Tuesday, 17 September 2019 (3481 reads) Springs and Holy Wells An interesting site dedicated to either the Saxon king or a local hermit of the same period. It lays in a small copse in the grounds of a guest house. The site of the well/spring might look idyllic but the Fosse Way runs right behind it so it is a far from peaceful location.

Ipplepen Iron Age Settlement Submitted by AngieLake on Monday, 16 September 2019 (16436 reads) Digs An Iron Age settlement unearthed in Devon has been described as one of the most important finds of its kind. It was prompted by the chance discovery of Roman coins in fields at Ipplepen, near Newton Abbot about five years ago. Archaeologists who have been excavations for several years say it is the first of its kind in the county.
Image submitted by AngieLake (View in gallery) Angie Lake visited the Ipplepen dig exhibition on Saturday, see lots of new photos on this page. The dig made the national news too: "New finds beef up case for redrawing map of Roman empire"

Clach An Truishal Submitted by sithean on Friday, 13 September 2019 (14727 reads) Callanish Standing Stone in Lewis. The tallest standing stone in Scotland, measuring 6 m (20ft) with an extimate 2 m underground. Nobody really knows the true purpose of this huge standing stone. Legend suggests that the stone harks back to the Norse raiders and settlers of Lewis, who marked the grave of a Norse Prince who died in a battle close to the stones location.

Castelo Velho de Freixo de Numão Submitted by KaiHofmann on Tuesday, 10 September 2019 (415 reads) Spain and Portugal The Castelo Velho (Portugese for old castle) is probably a sun/fire sanctuary used in the late Neolithic and the early Copper Age. It is situated on a high plane over the two rivers Douro and Cóa. The sanctuary forms a stone ring with the remains of a massive tower in the centre of the ring. Outside the ring some smaller stone circles/rings can be found. These look like archaic fireplaces.

Recinto megalitico di Santa Vittoria Submitted by francescomanconi on Tuesday, 10 September 2019 (401 reads) Italy The megalithic enclosure of Santa Vittoria di Esterzili, Sardinia, on the top of the mountain of the same name, includes a circular building from the Nuragic age, probably of sacred function. Above the circular building, the church of Santa Vittoria, now completely demolished, was built in historic times. The two entrances of the enclosure are preserved, one to the East and one to the West; the first keeps the architrave covering. The circular building still retains part of the bench that goes around the circumference.

St Cuthbert's Church (Corsenside) Submitted by Anne T on Tuesday, 10 September 2019 (378 reads) England Ancient Cross and a possible Tudor way marker in Northumberland. The cross base is 0.8m square and 0.3m high, with a moulded top. It is perhaps one of the most complex in its design we've seen recently, as it has a large circular depression cut into it, and at the bottom of this, a shallow rectangular socket hole, which Pastscape tells us is 0.3m x 0.25m x 0.1m deep. "It is raised up on one side upon small stones, and is probably not in situ".

Craig Rhosyfelin Submitted by Blingo_von_Trumpenstein on Monday, 09 September 2019 (78362 reads) Stonehenge Pinpointed in new research as a possible source of one group of the Stonehenge bluestones. Their source has long been a subject of fascination and considerable controversy. Another type of bluestone, the so-called spotted dolerite, was convincingly traced to the Mynydd Preseli area in north Pembrokeshire in the early 1920s
Image submitted by Aluta (View in gallery) Brian John has just released a new video explaining his assertion that Craig Rhosyfelin as a quarry for the Stonehenge Bluestones is a Myth. More in the comments on our page

Le Dehus Submitted by JJ on Thursday, 05 September 2019 (28882 reads) Channel Islands and IoM Chambered Tomb in Guernsey. The most interesting of the sites to explore I think, this one has four side chambers similar in the style, if not size to West Kennett Long Barrow. You have to almost lie down to see the unique carving of a stylised face - 'the Guardian of the tomb', thought to be prehistoric in origin, possibly a reused carved menhir on the roof of the tomb.
