At Tat-Tomna there was another stone
circle, probably they were the foundations of a small hut. Today,
these remains does not exist anymore.
The Stone Circle at tat-Tomna, which was near the reservoir,
was found by Flt. Lt. R. Forbes-Bentley in 1930. 1 The structure
was measured and photographed by him. The Stone Circle was made
of small stones and in his report he stated that the remains were
without doubt Prehistoric. Bentley continued that he did not find
potsherds but if someone dug in the site he would find some shreds.2
He observed that there were two oval structures near each other.
Nobody knows if they were the foundations of a hut or something
else. Unfortunately, these remains does not exist anymore, probably
because of the building of the reservoir or were covered with
