Beaghmore Stone Circles

A large,  impressive series of Bronze Age ceremonial stone monuments excavated from the surrounding bog between 1945 and 1949 and in 1965.  The main features are the six stone circles (built of fairly small stones) occurring in pairs, with 12 small cairns which held cremation burials and stone rows all running in parallel.  Finds were sparse from the excavations but two flint hoards were found, one dated by radiocarbon to the late Neolithic and other early bronze age.
