English term or phrase: court cairns and wedge-tomb
Archeologia irlandese
Paola
Italian translation:tomba a galleria e tomba a cuneo
Explanation:
Ti propongo le spiegazioni che ho trovato e puoi decidere se le due proposte sono adeguate:
1: court cairn anche chiamato court tomb -
Court tombs are the earliest type of megalithic tomb in Ireland. They consist of a burial gallery built of large stones with an entrance consisting of a pair of orthostats (upright stones) and a lintel across them. Outside the portal is an open, i.e. un-roofed, forecourt. The gallery is or was originally covered by corbel stones and consists of one or more burial chambers. There may also be a second court.
2: wedge tomb è proprio così, scavata a forma di cuneo:
The name comes from the tapering shape of the chamber which narrows toward the back

Anche io avevo letto la spiegazione di wedge tomb and court cairn ma la tua traduzione non mi sembra far riferimento a termini precisi. Ho tradotto i termini in modo più specifico, secondo dei libri di archeoòogia. Ma greazie lo stesso!!
