Incredible. Many years ago, when I was in the military, I had occasion to visit some neolithic sites like this one. The most startling thing about them, to me, was the energy one could feel emanating from them when touched. There was so much quartz crystal in them that it seemed they practically caused an arc too zap between the rock and my hand. Probably my imagination but others have reported the same phenomena. Great photos... thanks.

Granite emits a radioactive gas, in the open its not harmful, but in a closed area it can be toxic over a long period, it's called Radon. In Cornwall & Wales for example, where there are vast areas of granite shelves it seeps up through the ground, in old cottages & houses built with granite, its more prolific, hence the need of air vents. So, barrows are radon traps.
