Mound of Chan da Cruz 18


Description:
Measurements of mound: 11.50m (N-S); 20.50m (E-W); 1m in height (N side). Mound gravely disturbed with a large cone-shaped hole caused by looting, approx. 2m deep, which affects the central and southern part of the site; this hole could not be measured as it was covered with vegetation (gorse, brambles and some small pine trees) and with rubbish.

In the central-north part of the mound there is another, smaller, depression that “links” to the previously cited one. In some zones, due to disturbances caused by animals, remains of earth (very fine, reddish colour) conforming to the mound material and stones from the mantle are visible.
