Stone Fortresses

Stone fortresses were built later
than passage tombs,
by the celtic warriors.
 They were usually round
and had high walls. One of the
most spectacular is Dun Aengus
on the Aran Islands in Galway Bay.
Here they built a series of semi-circular
walls backing onto a 200ft high
cliff with the raging Atlantic below.
