AUGHNAGURGAN MEGALITHIC TOMB
AUGHNAGURGAN MEGALITHIC TOMB, COUNTY ARMAGH
This megalithic tomb, marked on the OS map as ‘Chambered Grave’, now lies
incorporated into a field boundary, 200m west of the portal tomb also at
Aughnagurgan. The structure consists of 6 large stones in situ, with several other,
smaller stones that maybe in their original positions. Three other large stones lie
within the area of the site but they appear to be displaced. The stones in situ form an
enclosure or kerb, defining an area 2.75m NW-SE x 4m NE-SW, which is raised 0.40m
above the surrounding ground. The other stones decrease in height to the NE end,
marked by a single stone, 0.15m in height, & two large stones, 1.04m in height & 1m
apart, mark the SW end.
