#4 Is it radioactive, if so what isotope?
Irridium means a meteor air-burst as in Tunguska.
Any other isotope could be a small nuke, remember humans have been around a whole lot longer than recorded civilization.

There's another anomoly in the British Isles, a series of vitrified walls that all face out to sea, as if there was an air-burst out to sea and the walls facing that way melted, no idea if any radioactivity was tested for.
