SHARK PRISON, AND A SMALLER PREHISTORIC BURIAL PLACE

SHARK PRISON, AND A SMALLER PREHISTORIC BURIAL PLACE

The prison on Sark (bottom) would seem to be in proportion to the smallness of the island and its population. In point of fact it only contains two cells, and they are rarely occupied. In addition to the famous prehistoric dolmen shown on p. 1302, Alderney possesses smaller burial places of the same dim ages. One of these is shown in the upper photograph. This island, most northerly of the Channel group, is of great interest to the student of archaeology.
