A Bronze Age tomb surrounded by an Iron Age stone circle

The Clogherny Wedge Tomb is situtaed in a sparce and exposed glaciated valley near the village of Plumbridge in county Tyrone. The tomb, with it’s largee capstone 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 by Oliver Davis in 1937 a cobbled path was found linking the tomb to the stone circle and some burnt human remains were found but the link between the two remains a mystery.
