Chambered Cairn


New Carvings Found

A new pecked chevron design has been found at Barclodiad y Gawres - bringing the total of decorated slabs at the site to six. It was initially discovered by amateur archaeologists Maggie and Keith Davidson, and officially recorded by rock art experts this month. The carving is very faint, which is why it was probably overlooked when the tomb was excavated in the 1950s.

On holiday in Angelsey last week, thought I would take my friend to visit Barclodiad-y-Gawres, but was disappointed to find the key is no longer available from wayside stores. Cadwr has withdrawn all private visits due to vandalism of the stones. Some mindless idiot sprayed LED ZEPPELIN on the stones in yellow paint. When it comes to mindless acts of vandalism, I always think of teenagers but what kids have even heard of LED ZEPPELIN. This disrespectful prickless dick has spoilt things for every one. I have been fortunate enough to have visited on several previous occassions. Posted by mandi
