In an Icelandic saga the hero opened the barrow of Karr, and, though the skeleton of the dead warrior drew his sword to defend his treasures, the Viking got away with the loot. Again Olga can only hazard an educated guess as to the meaning of the rituals that went on all those thousands of years ago. It is one of the largest and best preserved passage graves in Europe. The real Jersey, of the English Channel and off of the coast of Normandy. This must have been the grave of a very great chief.

This shaft of light perhaps symbolises bringing in new energy. The site features one of Europe's finest passage graves where you can learn about life in Jersey's Neolithic community 6, years ago. John R. Near that the wwii bunker with many witnesses writes and photos. Eventually the earth covering of the mound was reinstated.

The news of the devastation it was causing in Jersey eventually reached Normandy and the ears of the Seigneur of Hambye, a Norman Knight. The models of various prehistoric Jersey sites were cute and easily missed, so keep your eyes out, and the indoor displays of prehistoric finds and geology were nicely laid out and interesting. Experience life in Neolithic Jersey. Then Came the betrayal. More often the slayers were knights. The 9m long passage opens out into a main chamber that has three smaller side chambers, the whole appearance being cruciform in shape.
