Moel Eilio


Moel Eilio (Cairn(s)) by GLADMAN Moel Eilio's Bronze Age cairn no longer dominates the profile of the mountain top as (presumably) it once did.... but nevertheless the placement [top left skyline] says all that needs to be said, I think, about its importance within the prehistoric landscape. There is another such monument upon Craig Cwm-bychan (lower crags middle left of image), plus another massive example upon the summit of Mynydd Mawr itself. All three have been scandalously treated. The prominent mountain on the horizon, incidentally, is Eildir Fawr, its hollow interior home to the Dinorwig hydro electric scheme.... wonder what future scholars will make of that?
