Leacanabuaile Stone Fort: An Irish prehistoric edifice from 2000 BC
This evening, I am posting information on Leacanabuaile Stone Fort near Cahersiveen in the West of Ireland. Location is about ninety miles west of Cork.
Key characteristics of Leacanabuaile Stone Fort:
- Built on a hillside and partly reconstructed.
- Walls embrace near circular area extending to 70 feet in diameter,
- Walls 10 feet thick.
- Inside is a square domestic residence built on foundations on an earlier circular house.
- Archaeology suggests history dating back to Bronze (c. 2000 BC) and Iron Ages (c.800 BC).
