La Pouquelaye de Faldouet--4000-3200 BC.
This Neolithic passage grave is in the Parish of St Martin. It is a 5 meter long passage leading into a large circular chamber beyond which is a large capstoned end chamber. Several smaller side chambers and cists form the edges of the main chamber. Human bones from at least three individuals have been recovered as well as pottery, stone axes and flints.
The dolmens of Jersey range over a wide period, from around 4800 BC to 2250 BC, these dates covering the periods roughly designated as Neolithic, or “new stone age”, to Chalcolithic, or “copper age”.
