Ancient burial site found in Ireland
A team of archaeologists from the Irish National Museum has completed an initial investigation at an ancient cist burial site discovered on a Co. Donegal farm. The tomb, believed to be around 3,800 years old, was discovered recently near Castlefin along the banks of the River Finn. It contained a small urn and skeletal remains. Caroline Carr, assistant curator at the Donegal County Museum, said that this was an important find, and the area in question is of rich archaeological interest.
