Bant’s Carn

Bant’s Carn is a Bronze Age Entrance Grave on a hill above Halangy Down on St. Mary’s, the main island of the Isles of Scilly.

Bant's Carn is a round mound of earth about eight meters in diameter, located on a low platform, in which there is a so-called "Scillonian Entrance Grave". A short corridor leads to the chamber about five meters long and 1.5 m wide. Chamber and passage are on one axis and are separated by side posts. Some systems of this type are roofed over their entire length of the aisle and some, such as Bant’s Carn, have an area that is open at the top and extends from the curb to the chamber. The roof consists of four large horizontal capstones. The restored hill is bordered by curbs.
