Musée archéologique de Namur

Musée archéologique de Namur. Features Prehistoric, Gallo-Roman (1st - 5th c. AD) and Merovingian (5th - 7th c. AD) artefacts found in inhabited caves (for exemple : Han-sur-Lesse), Gallo-Roman villas and tombs, Merovingian tumuli, etc.

Tiree Ringing Rock

A lovely new 3D Model of the ringing stone - you can spin and zoom it, just a pity you can't 'ring' it! In the comments on our page.. On a remote section of Tiree's coast west of Vaul can be found The Ringing Stone. This rock is actually an erratic carried by the ice, which covered Scotland during the last ice age, from the island of Rum to the north. The light grey granodiorite boulder is a much younger than anything found on Tiree, which is ancient Lewisian rock. The Ringing Stone has been decorated by dozens of cup markings.

Durrington Walls

Tool marks at Durrington Walls show evidence for the start of Britain’s Copper Age, with metal axes possibly in use even before the first Beaker burials, see the latest comment on our page. Best preserved on the north-east side, this great henge monument not far from Stonehenge measures 520m from north to south and 450m from east to west (the diameter of Avebury is 427m). The bank was originally 27m wide. The ditch was up to 42m wide and was 6m deep.

Hendraburnick Quoit

Rock art clearest when viewed in low sunlight or by moonlight, also smashing of quartz veins, possibly significant in night time rituals. Photogrammetric recording revealed the site to be the most decorated stone in southern Britain, with the art being added to over time. Details in the comments on our pagels. Hendraburnick 'Quoit', possibly a fallen Cornish Quoit but more likely some large stones that were propped into an arrangement in antiquity. With rock art on its top surface. Situated near to the source of the River Camel.

Grange (Co. Limerick)

Geophysical surveys of the Great Stone Circle at Grange lead to major reinterpretation as later Neolithic site with significant nineteenth century 'restoration'. Lough Gur has a great concentration of prehistoric remains, including wedge-tombs, foundations of huts, stone circles, standing-stones and crannógs (artificial refuge-islands in lakes). The most famous of these monuments is the stone circle and henge in Grange townland, situated to the E of the Bruff-Limerick road.

Cerro Brujo

Oldest cancer case in Central America discovered. See the comment below on our page. A Pre-Columbian farm and hunter gatherer settlement two kilometers inland on a ridge 150 m above sea level in Bocas del Toro, Panama Shell middens and other remains indicate multiple households with two occupations: aprox 600 CE, based on ceramic typology and chronology, and an occupation between 780 and 1252 CE (based on four radiocarbon dates inferred from charcoal in middens.)
