Naboth's Vineyard

Round Barrow(s)


'Naboth's Vineyard' is an episode from the bible (which you can read online at the Electronic Text Centre , courtesy of the University of Virginia)

It's a rather gruesome tale in which King Ahab hankers after the lowly Naboth's nice vineyard, and because Naboth won't sell it to him, he conspires to have him done away with.

Does this tale relate to some kind of similar legendary incident in Llanharry? Could the barrows even have been incorporated into a local story? And if not, why would the field be called this strange name?
