Monu-Mental About Prehistoric Antrim is the third book in a series of county-by-county fieldguides to Irish pre-Christian monuments. Many people visit County Antrim to experience the Giants Causeway or walk in the famous Glens, but many overlook the amazing monuments the county has to offer.
Monuments included in this book include axe factories, standing stones, cairns, portal tombs, court tombs, wedge tombs, Antrims group of unique mini-passage tombs as well as several magnificent hilltop passage tombs. One of these megalithic tombs was even used as a pigsty!
The first section of this book travels around the county detailing the monuments and their relationships, and introduces work from the early accounts and excavation reports. The second section is a monument-by-monument gazetteer, giving individual descriptions, directions and positional information for each monument.
