Mound of Chan da Cruz C


Description:
Its siting (with reference to the electricity pylon) appears to indicate that it could correspond to tumulus no. 37 of Hidalgo-Costas, a site that was already referenced as destroyed by those authors.

In the area where the pylon is located there is a certain elevation of the land in a more or less hemispherical form, although it could simply be the accumulation of earth and rubble to facilitate its installation (the vegetation prevented a precise inspection of that area).

There are also references to the appearance of prehistoric pottery fragments in that area: some of the earth removed for the firebreak was reviewed but nothing significant was found (also in this case the vegetation made this task difficult).
