NX4302 : Cronk Bouyr (Deaf or Dead Hill), Bride

near to Glentruan, Isle of Man, Great Britain

Cronk Bouyr (Deaf or Dead Hill), Bride
Cronk Bouyr (Deaf or Dead Hill), Bride
This small hill near Ballacregga Farm is marked on maps as a Tumulus. The mound was excavated in 1928 and found to contain 2 graves built of coursed stone as well as a 'cist' containing incinerated bones. This may therefore be a transitional site from the Neolithic across to the Bronze Age, or perhaps the graves were much later - we will probably never know. The site is on the edge of the Flandrian cliff line overlooking the flat area of land known as The Ayres.
