Drom beag

Here it is! If you are curious and you look online you can see a gorgeous foto of it during winter solstice with the sun lined up between the stones.

The Cloch-Chearcal Agus Cairn is also at this site.

This pool was used for cooking and some bathing. Apparently, leg of lamb was wrapped in straw, think tamale-style and dropped into the water once it was boiling. The water was heated with hot rocks. Archeologists re-enacted the procedure and determined that it only took 18 minutes to bring the water to the boiling point with hot rocks. I am sure it took a good long time to get the rocks that hot though!
