This is our always changing list of recently added sites, plus the
occasional oldie. Generally, sites get added on the top and
eventually get taken off the bott

Passage Tombs We have a lot of links to sites featuring passage
tombs/passage graves like Newgrange in Ireland and Wayland's
Smithy
in England. This link from Ireland is a good explanation
of what makes a burial site a passage grave.

Gavrinis is a big passage tomb in Brittany, France.

"Gavrinis (Breton: Gavriniz) is a small island in the
Gulf of Morbihan in Brittany, France. It contains the Gavrinis
tomb, a Neolithic passage tomb built around 4200–4000 BC,
making it one of the world's oldest surviving buildings. Stones
inside the passage and chamber are covered in megalithic art.
It is likened to other Neolithic passage tombs such as
Barnenez in Brittany and Newgrange in Ireland." - Wikipedia

thousands of images."

Hi, kids! I'm Dakota! I am one of the Brittanies here at
Good Sites for Kids! I'm a retired hunter and a mama.
My fur-sister Lily and I are American Brittanies, both
rescues, and both South Dakota natives. When we're not
helping out on the site, we patrol the property,
chase rabbits and squirrels, say hi to the kids at the school
playground and the dogs next door, rack out on our doggie
beds, beg for treats, and hang out with our humans!
