Introduction

A Neolithic burial mound, dating back 5,500 years dominates this tranquil site. Following recent excavations, the entrance to the tomb has now been restored to its original glory. Two tiny chapels top the mound, and in addition, there are geology and archaeology galleries and a World War Two German bunker. The bunker now houses a unique memorial to the memory of the slave-workers in the Channel Islands during the Second World War.

In the grounds of the museum stands our Neolithic House which is the focus for a number of activities designed to give visitors a better understanding of the day-to-day life of the community that built the burial mound.
