Lower Innisigden Burial Chamber

Innisidgen Lower Burial Chamber - SV 92115, 12718.

Survey Marker 99 (or66) - SV 92123, 12712. (Lower)

This chambered tomb was built sometime between 2000 BC and 1500 BC and only a few hundred yards from the Upper chambered tomb. Both would have stood among fields at a time when the Isles of Scilly were all one large island.  This Lower tomb is less well preserved than the Upper Tomb, most of the capping stones are missing.  The passage aligns due north - south. It may have served as a shrine or temple in addition to being used for burial.  The chamber has long since been rifled of its contents - English Heritage Plaque.
