An introduction to the Giant's Churches of Finland

Anne T writes: In the spring of 2014 the Portal received an email from Martti Lahti in Finland to let us know about some enigmatic Neolithic stone structures, found only in Ostrobothnia in Western Finland. These structures are called Giant's Churches or Jätinkirkko.

Warren Field

Mesolithic Deeside, Friday, Sept 30th talk by Caroline Wickham-Jones and even more on Sat October 1st at Crathes Castle. Sounds like a very interesting day. See the most recent comment on our page. The site of Warren Field in Scotland revealed two unusual and enigmatic features; an alignment of pits and a large, rectangular feature interpreted as a timber building. Excavations confirmed that the timber structure was an early Neolithic building and that the pits had been in use from the Mesolithic.

Kersey Puddingstone

Suffolk council almost remove ‘hazardous’ ancient stone by accident but this is prevented by a vigilant local resident. Natural Stone in Suffolk. This Puddingstone is by the footbridge over the brook. This is the most easterly point of the Puddingstone Trail, which now turns south-west.

Metsamor Complex

The Metsamor bronze-age (roughly 4,000 to 3,000 BCE) archaeological complex comprises several rows of menhirs (Vischaps), a bronze-age settlement and cup & ring stones. It is interpreted as an observatory.

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.
