castlerigg stone circle. cumbria.

castlerigg stone circle. cumbria. 10 stones make up the cove that attaches itself to the eastern edge of the circle. it measures 7.5m by 3.5m and probably was associated with burial ceremonies. there are two barrows now flattered within the circle and would have been added at a later date. these coves are a feature of similar monuments in brittany and link it again with those along the iberian pernisular. #ceremonial #coves #stones #neolithic #barrows #brittany #stone_circle from instagram:
