Giant's Grave


A Bronze Age grave from around 1000 BC. The burial cist was once covered by a circular mound. It is now exposed on one side, due to a road which has cut through the site. Most of the monument remains covered by a raised ground bank. The site was restored in 1954.


Giant's Grave is located about 30 yards along the road to Ballig. Close to Tynwald Hill in the village of St Johns near Peel in the midwest part of the island.
