I guess a wedge tomb beats having a ledge tomb. I don't want to dangle precariously. Not even when I'm dead.

I want one of those. I just need some land in a remote location.

Ah wedge tombs are irish burial chambers dating back about 4500 years. The name comes from the fact they decrease in hieght and width towards the end. They would originally be covered by a cairn
