Since time immemorial, people have been fascinated by and pondering the meaning of stone circles and standings, especially those that seem to have patterns or writing on them. Naturally, our thoughts gravitate to something like Stonehenge on Salisbury plain, but in fact there are far more such stones, and more impressive ones in some respects, in Ireland. On the south side of Dingle Bay, there are the Dunloe Ogham stones. If you look carefully you will see the man-made strirations or cuts in these stones. But what do they signify? Originally, these stones lay flat on the ground, making a roof for some subterranean structure. Could it be a tomb?
