    About 5m hhig, this tee shape is the central feature of every one of these buildings, which are assumed to be places of worship and sacrifice. Its known as a Taula or table although far too high for such use, by anyone other than the legendary giants who lived here pre-the great flood.

    This is a store room, attached to one of the bigger houses. Two central pillars (one obscured) hold up the large flat rocks that form the roof. About 3m wide x 6m long x 2.2m high. Surprisingly cool inside. Around 3000 years old.

    Inside the underground burial chamber. Quite large 2-2.2m high maybe 10m long. What looks like a small crypt in that rear cavity...or maybe something to contain fluids or burial dressings. Not really known as excavations not yet studied...
