"Ballavarry Burial Mound is a prehistoric burial site located on the Isle of Man, an island in the Irish Sea between Great Britain and Ireland. The site dates back to the Neolithic period, around 4000-2000 BCE, and is believed to have been in use for several centuries.

The burial mound is situated in a field near the village of St. Marks in the central part of the island. It is a circular mound measuring approximately 15 meters in diameter and two meters in height. The mound is made of earth and stones and is surrounded by a ditch that was likely used for defensive purposes.

Excavations of the burial mound in the late 19th century uncovered a number of Neolithic artifacts, including pottery fragments, flint tools, and human bones. It is believed that the site was used as a communal burial place for a small farming community, and that the people buried there may have been important members of the community or religious leaders.""Ballavarry Burial Mound is a prehistoric burial site located on the Isle of Man, an island in the Irish Sea between Great Britain and Ireland.
