Physical Evidence

Kelvin Wilson, an archaeological illustrator, noticed a wide channel (? For berthing boats) and a long narrow ?drainage channel cut into the rock. These are clearly visible on Google Earth and on site at low tide. In July 2019 archaeologist Colm O'Brien and a group of local volunteers accurately recorded the position of the wide channel and the postholes using GPS.
