Site 54

Site 54 is a small unipmosing dolmen with a strangely shaped capstone. The circle was dismantled around 1837 and used to build fieldwalls, and the mound or tertre was ploughed away by improving tenants. The capstone of the dolmen is somewhat de-stabilized and is partly off its supporting orthostats

Site 54: - Borlase

Situated at the angle of the field, N.E. of the cairn called Listoghil, and to the E. of LXV (dolmen-circle). "Of this circle, also, only a few stones are left, the rest having been carried away to clear the ground; but the cromleac is untouched, though covered with stones collected off the land." - Petrie.

"Three small fragments of uncalcined bones, pieces of oyster-shell, and a flint flake, represented all that was discovered here." - Wood-Martin. ''The few stones yet remaining of those which formed this monument may now be seen in the fences around a neighbouring cottage." - Wood Martin.
