A Bronze Age tomb surrounded by an Iron Age stone circle

The Clogherny Wedge Tomb is situated in a sparse and exposed glaciated valley near the village of Plumbridge in County Tyrone. The tomb has a large capstone that dates to around c.2500BC while the small stone circle consisting of 11 stones was probably built about 1500 years later. This type of tomb is called a ‘single gallery wedge tomb’ is one of 22 found in the county and makes up 5% of the total number in Ireland. During excavations carried out in 1937 by Oliver Davis burnt human remains were found in the tomb and a cobbled path was found linking the tomb to the stone circle.
