If you are interested in the burial tombs of ancient times, you need to wander the county of Omagh. There are many interesting standing stones, stone rings and burial chambers in the region. One you might like to visit is the Creggandevesky Court Tomb. It was the subject of excavation in the years 1979 to 1982. At that point, the land around it was a bog.

The stone or rock Court Tomb is very old. It is a product of the Late Stone Age, making it between 4,000 and 6,000 years of age. The Court Tomb has three burial chambers. You can gain access at the rear of the now open narrow court. In them laid several individual bodies. Some of the bodies had actually been cremated before their burial. Along with the bodies, archeologists found bead jewelry, flint tools and pottery. In front of the south-east of the tomb, which is oriented in a north-west-south-east direction, is a courtyard. It is semi-circular in shape. The structure, itself, is some 50 feet in length. It is about 40 feet in width and reaches some 7 feet in the air. If you wander further afield, you can also visit the Dun Ruadh Burial Cairn and Visitor Center. This 4,000-year old burial site had 13 individual bodies within the structure.
