Make a Donation - US taxpayers

We really need your help to raise the necessary funds to rescue the site before it is destroyed by the Atlantic Ocean - any amount large or small is very welcome. Our current target is to raise enough money to enable us to dig for a 8-week season in 2018 and to help fund some of the post-excavation cost this will generate: please click here for more information. The photo below shows how close the Atlantic is to the site. The concentric rings of the chambered tomb on the right show the damage to the outer circuit of the wall which has taken place in the last three years. This site will be destroyed completely in the not-too-distant future.
