⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ♾️ MEN AN TOL 🌀2500BC
══════════════════ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✷ It is suspected that the men an tol are the remains of a Neolithic tomb because the stones that have been found are in conjunction with the entrances to other Neolithic chambers. In 1932, Hugh O’neill Hencken wrote the first modern archaeological report on the place, in which he assured that the position of the stones was not from the prehistoric era, but that it had changed markedly. He expressed that the men an tol could originally have been part of a corridor mound that would sadly have been destroyed by the passage of centuries and the occupations of the following societies. In 1993, the Cornish Historical Environment Service published a detailed report with the latest research results. This report suggested that standing stones originated from a stone circle consisting of 18 to 20 stones. The men an tol, however, could be part of a burial mound near the site. However, it is also possible that the perforated stone formed a central part of the circle, in this way they could mark specific points on the horizon. This last possibility, is somewhat curious, because nothing like it has been seen in any other circle of stones in the world. William Borlase, drew and investigated the place in 1749. On the same plane it shows that the megaliths were not in line as today, but formed an approximate angle of 135 °. Borlase also reported that farmers had taken stones from the area.
