The Dolmens of Ireland, Vol. 3 of 3: Their Distribution, Structural Characteristics, and Affinities in Other Countries; Together with the Folk-Lore Attaching to Them; Supplemented by Considerations on the Anthropology, Ethnology, and Traditions of the Iri by William Copeland Borlase (Paperback / softback, 2016)
Excerpt from The Dolmens of Ireland, Vol. 3 of 3: Their Distribution, Structural Characteristics, and Affinities in Other Countries; Together With the Folk-Lore Attaching to Them; Supplemented by Considerations on the Anthropology, Ethlogy, and Traditions of the Irish People The six illustrations which General Faidherbe gives of the dolmens of North Africa Show them to be such as might be found in almost any other district. On the whole, they appear to me to be more directly comparable with those found in the Eastern Pyrenees than with any others. In their present con dition they are large cists, some built squarely and with care; others of more rugged design and material. In height they average only from 4 to 5 feet. General Faidherbe did t think that those he examined had been covered by tumuli, and he adduces reasons for concluding that in some cases they could t have been so.
