Four RCS girls from Ms Dunne's Home Ec class admiring the corbelled stonework of a Scriptorium cell of the time of the early Christian monks
This one above is another Portal Tomb that is relatively local to our school. It is located in Newbawn so it is one we can all readily access (always ask the landowner's permission of course). See http://stonehunters.webs.com/ for more great information and pictures of historical stones and cairns throughout the south east of Ireland
Inside the Neolithic hut we saw the thatch and wattle weave of wood from trees such as willow, birch, hazel, elm and oak.

an early Christian monk's cell (dwelling)
This is a burial chamber whose cap stone weighs approximately three tonnes.
Bodies were placed in the portal dolmen
(also known as cromlech, anta, Hünengrab, Hunebed, quoit), and some dolmens have been found to contain the remains of several bodies. The Portal Dolmen is a type of single-chamber megalithic tomb, usually consisting of three or more upright stones (megaliths) supporting a large flat horizontal capstone (table). Most date from the early Neolithic period (4000 to 3000 BC).
