Long Description:
A ring Cairn is a low, circular ring or bank of small standing stones surrounding an open, roughly circular area with a rectangular grave (Kistvaen) in the centre.

Soussons is a great easily accessible example of this as the Kistvaen can be clearly seen in the centre.

Unfortunately some idiots have made a fire in the central grave area but hopefully in time this will heal. More pictures and info can be found on the following link www.megalithic.co.uk/article.php?sid=1266
