The last vestiges of the once-great Barroubio dolmen   Leave a comment

It seems obvious to us all now – the search for a megalith begins with the internet. But for earlier prehistorians the task meant painstaking research through various local libraries, plus time-consuming correspondance and encounters with local inhabitants.

Had it not been for a solitary mention in a 1927 publication, and a chance meeting with a local historian, I would never have found this sad remnant of what must once have been a fine and sizeable dolmen.
