A prehistoric kitchen at Drombeg

‘Fulacht fiadh’ water trough and fireplace building at Drombeg stone circle, County Cork, Ireland.

This photo shows what is essentially a Bronze Age kitchen no doubt used to feed those attending ceremonies at the adjacent stone circle.

Excavation in 1959-60 revealed a horseshoe-shaped drystone enclosing bank, a central slab-lined cooking pit, U-shaped hearth and well with a stone-lined overflow drainage channel ( this last item is not visible in the photo below as it runs behind the far wall).J2TX3J
