Poulnabrone Dolmen 

 

這裏也是旅遊團安排的景點,這是新石器年代的古墓,墓內至少有33具遺體,包括嬰兒、兒童及成人,男女都有,約於五千年前下葬,遺骨極分散,相信遺骨曾移葬,遺骨下葬前或被火「淨化」,部分遺骨有燒焦痕跡。

 

在愛爾蘭境內,約有百多個同類「巨石墳」,墳石為石灰石,五千年前的新石器年代已有農耕、畜牧、打漁、採集等活動,墳墓亦為地界,是古人的「聖地」。

 

當日幸運天晴,來這裏前完全無搜集資料,幸好現埸有說明展板,才略知此處是古墓,但旅行團的時間真的太趕,展板不夠時間細看,也無時間仔細拍攝,唉,真的好可惜。

 

This visiting spot was organised by the tour. This is a tomb in New Stone Age. At least 33 individuals were buried in the chamber--infants, children and adults, both male and female.

It is likely that the bones, which were highly fragmented, were initially buried elsewhere before being transferred to this tomb some time around 3000BC.

Some bones had burnt marks indicated that the bone might be ‘purify’ by fire before they were buried into the tomb.

 

There are around 100+ Megalithic tombs around Ireland and this tomb was made up of limestone. There were farming, animals raising and fishing 5000 years ago and the tomb was the boundary and they were ‘holy land’ for the people at that time.

 

I was lucky to have a sunny day when I visit the tomb. I didn’t do any research before the visiting and luckily there are info boards on site and that’s why I knew it was a tomb.

But the time was really rush. I didn’t have enough time to read the boards and not enough time to take good photos. What a pity…
