Ha ha, I like that. Even if you do look like a football trophy. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat

Usually my ears. Seriously, the image does show that this must have been a pretty substantial cairn in it's day. Strange that it has been buggered, whilst the great Cefn Coch cairn below hasn't? GLADMAN Posted by GLADMAN

There's no accounting for robbing trends. It would be fascinating to know how many cairns were broken into and/or robbed for stone and valuables centuries ago, and how many clung on until "antiquarian" excavation (or more recently). Guess we'll never really be able to quantify. thesweetcheat Posted by thesweetcheat
