Turlough Hill Neolithic fort

Excavations of a neolithic house site on Turlough Hill - one of approximately 160 on the hill, along with two (presumably) ritual monuments, a cairn and a labyrinthine-like enclosure. The OS marked site of the Turlough Hill neolithic fort takes some work to get to but is fully worth the effort. Best accessed from the Oughtmama Valley to the west, there is a track to the head of the valley near the site of three evocative, ruined early Christian churches and a holy well.

Wester Livilands

On the weekend of 16-19th Sepember, a crowdfunded dig took place at Wester Livilands, a site suspected of being the location of the only known broch in what is now an urban environment. The dig was led by Dr Murray Cook, an expert in the Scottish Iron Age.

Brane Entrance Grave

This little tomb, to the south-west of Brane Farm, is rather overgrown, but very well preserved, with a well-preserved passage having 2 large roof slabs still in place.

Top 10 megalithic sites to visit in Malta

Our top 10 sites to visit in Malta and Gozo.:Ħaġar Qim Now covered by a lightweight roof to slow down erosion of its fragile limestone structure, Ħaġar Qim is Malta's best preserved megalithic temple and has to be seen to appreciate its subtle yet imposing architecture. It has a trilithon entrance, well constructed corbelled walling and what look like mushroom or table altars inside. A shrine in the northeast wall has an oracle hole leading through from an originally concealed chamber to the inner apse of the temple.

Hukok

On a hill above the Sea of Galilee in northern Israel, archaeologists have discovered amazing fifth-century floor mosaics featuring biblical and ancient Greek scenes in the ruins of an ancient synagogue.

Chotuna-Chornancap

Archaeologists find ancient tombs in Peru hinting at human sacrifice, see the most recent comment on our page. A complex of flat-topped adobe Pyramids, tombs, and temples in Lambayeque, Peru. The Huaca Chotuna brick pyramid is part of a complex that includes walled compounds, and adobe buildings with plastered walls that show the remains of frescos and bas reliefs of stylized figures. Another pyramid on the site, Huaca Norta, contained sacrificial victims.
