Dolmen / Quoit / Cromlech


Apparently Lligwy is actually built over a natural fissure in the limestone, rather than being dug out. Aubrey Burl (in 'Rites of the Gods') lists the layers (from top to bottom) that were excavated inside:
> red clay and limpet shells
>black earth containing pottery sherds and human, ox, sheep, pig, deer, fox, fowl, dog, and otter bones
>paving of flat stones
>black earth and human bones
>scattered mussel shells
