Wedge Tombs

Stone galleries which are narrower and shorter than the megalithic tombs are called “wedge tombs.”  They also differ from the megalithic stones in that they are oriented towards the setting sun.  They were types of shrines used by a group for sacrificial offerings to supernatural powers.  They were constructed about 2,500 BC and in later years used as Mass Rocks in Penal times.
