To be more exact, Beaker folk initially brought the Copper Age around BC, homing in on the copper belts of Ireland and Wales. They left their characteristic beakers at a copper mine on Ross Island, in Lough Leane, Co. Kerry

  Of particular interest in the prehistoric period are the numerous Bronze Age burial-cairns and cists, the extensive groups of small cairns and a rich variety of Iron Age forts and settlements. the numerous Bronze Age cist-cemeteries are particularly worthy of mention.

MEGALITHIC CULTURES Defining Megalith The term ‘megalith’ is derived from Greek ‘megas’, which means great and ‘lithos’ meaning stone. So, ‘megaliths’ refer to the monuments built of large stones. But all monuments constructed of big stones are not megaliths. The term has a restricted usage and is applied only to a particular class of monuments Richard Tipping's 60 research works with 1, citations and 2, reads, including: Reindeer hunters at Howburn Farm, South Lanarkshire: A late Hamburgian settlement in southern Scotland - its   Radiocarbon dates from short cist burials have tended to calibrate from the late Chalcolithic to the early Bronze Age, and inhumations in such cists are commonly associated with typically Bronze Age artefacts such as beakers; bronze or copper objects and flint artefacts (e.g.
