An Irish farmer discovers a medieval tomb that has been mostly neglected for thousands of years.
The burial place was discovered on the Dingle peninsula in South West Ireland after an excavator dislodged a big boulder, revealing a concealed chamber underneath.
Inside, native archaeologists uncovered what they thought were human bones, as well as a pristine oval-shaped stone – all of which might hold information about archaic burial procedures
A farmer in southwest Ireland uncovered an old burial behind a massive stone he moved on his land. A sub-chamber towards the front of the tomb was discovered, as well as a smooth oblong-shaped stone and what seemed to be human bones.
According to RTE, the tomb was discovered during normal land development work when a big stone was raised up to expose a’slab-lined chamber’ beneath.
An adjoining sub-chamber was discovered at what looked to be the front of the tomb, containing human bone remains.
They believe the tomb is between 2,500 and 4,000 years old and stems from the Bronze Age
