Long Cairn


Gathering the Jewels

A couple of photographs of finds from the tomb's excavation (it was only discovered in the 1970s). One is the oldest dated musical instrument from Wales - a flute made from a sheepbone; the other is a human rib bone damaged by an arrow - nasty.

So, discovered in the 1970s and excavated in 1920-21?

You're right Mark, I added this to completely the wrong site (doh). Thanks for pointing it out - I've had it moved across. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon
