portal dolmen. whispering knights. believed to be the earliest of the rollright stones, they are the remains of the burial chamber of an early or middle neolithic portal dolmen, lying 400 metres east of the king's men circle. four standing stones survive, forming a chamber about two square metres in area around a fifth recumbent stone, probably the collapsed roof capstone. excavations in the 1980’s revealed that the portal dolmen had never been a part of a longer cairn, as had been suggested by some earlier investigators. neolithic pottery found at the time as part of the excavations has suggested the early date.#neolithic #wisperingknights #portaldolmen #rollrightstones #archaeology #burialchamber #monoliths #capstone
