      A hole of stone, or portal, Dolmens have been perhaps ceremonial bird tables. Travel in mind to West Pembrokeshire and the blue stone hills, Siroedd Benfro or chief’s land of ancient times. On its north and wooded side pause to find the location Pentre Ifan, or “Evan’s village” now listed as a neolithic burial chamber. As stable as is a three legged stool, three great rocks hold upon their heads a masoned platform of a bluestone who points north exact over the horizon 400 miles to the The Callanish Stones. Marvel well at the land where this dolmen stands for unlike the archeological sites where rings and ditches echo circles of their time here tis flat and ever was for the ceremonies of this site. Let the omen raven bird with its herald croak of death tell of its purpose here, visiting this altar and releasing to the sky the remains of human beings that become immortal as the air through which they fly. Your inquiring visit is itself a ceremony and an invitation to enter, for beneath the altar a sounding stone stands ready offering its vibrations to unite with your consciousness.

        Perhaps they were, but not in the sense we might recognise today. As I understand it, dolmens are the stone structures left after the earth and organic materials of burial mounds gradually weathered away over the many millennia. Nevertheless, the idea that souls were transformed into birds is one that is found in many cultures, including the ancient Celtic, Iberian and pre-historic cultures of the Atlantic … So who knows? Perhaps they have indeed become bird tables, of a sort …

        Whatever the case, there is definitely something about dolmens that seems so ancient and yet timeless, they do indeed seem like portals.
