The stones as they appear while approaching to them.


This was a real hard task! The stone row is on a hill, but maybe we approached it from the wrong side and we walked on a track that the rains of the past days almost turned to a quagmire and every step of ours could have been the one that would sink us. More, the track was covered with fresh manure and the thorned branches of brambles and gorses slowed us down a lot. We took 40 minutes to walk 700 metres.
Sadly, after all this efforts, when we arrived at the stone row the landowner did it as well coming from a different direction, and after asking us how we found this place and where we were coming from, he kindly asked us to leave at once. We explained him that we hadn't asked for the permission because we didn't find anybody nor did we see any house, but he stood firm and adviced us a different direction, so that we could go back to our car in less time, only 20 minutes for 500 metres.
What he didn't tell us was that the electric cattle fence was in operation!
I took all the measurements in a hurry and what I wrote down is that the stones are aligned northeast-southwest, the row is about 6 metres long and the stones have a height from about 50 centimetres to about 2 metres.
All around the alignment the ground is trampled by the cattle.
