Baltinglass Hill Passage Tomb, County Wicklow, Ireland.
On the summit of Baltinglass Hill a multi-phased cairn site was excavated 1934-6. The kerb of the cairn was 27 metres in diameter, most smaller stone covering the burial chambers had been removed to construct a later Cashel surrounding the site.
The 3D model shows the primary passage tomb (neolithic) which is located on the northern side of the cairn. The 3.2metre long passage opens into a polygonal chamber with a stone basin. A flint scraper was found in the chamber. – The model concentrates on the chamber and does not show the kerb.
Two further phases of cairn activity relate to other tombs and kerbs, some stones also exhibit examples of passage tomb art. Finds from beneath the cairn included a polished stone axehead and wheat grains.
Scale: 1 metre, red end of scale indicates North direction.
