Sandy Road Scone (Stone Circle)

The Urban Prehistorian


Looks like the nearby trees are mostly gone now and the site has been cleaned up to the point where it looks like a garden rockery.

Cladh Hallan Round Houses (Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork)

Cracking the puzzle of the Cladh Hallan Bodies


This is a YouTube video of Kerri Brown explaining about recent DNA sampling of the Cladh Hallan burial.

Gaer Fawr (Welshpool) (Hillfort)

Gaer Fawr on Coflein


Includes a detailed description of the fort, photographs, a plan and a RCAHMW report on the site.

Hidden Iron Age Fort Uncovered (BBC News)


The full extent of a hillfort likened to an Iron Age "Millennium Stadium" has been uncovered by investigators.

Gaer Fawr hillfort at Guilsfield, near Welshpool, Powys, is effectively hidden by woodland, making it impossible to appreciate the scale of it.

Detailed survey by the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales produced a computer model of the site which dates from around 800BC.

The Wrekin (Hillfort)

The Wrekin on Wikipedia


A good little article about the Wrekin including directions and folklore.

Castell Henllys (Hillfort)

University of York: Castell Henllys


A web site about the excavation of Castell Henllys.

Ty Isaf (Chambered Cairn)

Wales Past


This page accompanies an article entitled The Stone Age tombs of south-east Wales by Steve Burrow, but I'm including it here because it contains a photograph of the bowl found at Ty Isaf.

Tinkinswood (Burial Chamber)

Wales Past


This page accompanies an article entitled The Stone Age tombs of south-east Wales by Steve Burrow. I'm including it here because it contains an, "imaginative reconstruction of a burial ceremony at Tinkinswood".

Cladh Hallan Round Houses (Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork)

University of Sheffield


This set of pages about the 'Prehistoric Village at Cladh Hallan' include a lot of detail about the site and a photograph of one of the Cladh Hallan 'mummies' (on page III).

Bryn Celli Ddu (Chambered Cairn)

BBC News: Interview with Chris Dearden


A BBC radio programme by Chris Dearden including an interview with Steve Burrow, the archaeologist who rediscovered the Summer Solstice alignment. Note the extremely lame 'footsteps' sound effect at the start.

There's also a video clip on the BBC web site from a news item, first broadcast on Summer Solstice 2006. Both of these clips require Real Player.

Gloucestershire

BBC News Magazine: Testing your metal


What's it like living in an Iron Age village? How did they keep warm and make tools? Did they live more rewarding lives? A re-created Iron Age village [at Cinderbury] allows visitors to stay and find out.

Merlin's Hill (Hillfort)

Carmarthen.co.uk


This webcam has Carmarthen in the forground and Merlin's Hill in the distance (on the horizon to the right of the church tower). The camera is very strangely positioned, so I'm not sure if it's been accidentally moved, or if this is the intended view.

Cwm-y-Saeson (Standing Stone / Menhir)

BBC: Standing Stones of Rhayader


A page by Roger Hulm, giving the name of the stone as 'Cefn Llech'. Hulm includes some good directions to the stone.

Maengwyngweddw (Standing Stone / Menhir)

BBC: Standing Stones of Rhayader


Another excellent little page by local man Roger Hulm. Hulm gives a translation of 'Maengwyngweddw' as, 'the stone of the white widow', and indicates that it's a possible allusion to the legend associated with Maen Serth.

Maen Serth (Standing Stone / Menhir)

BBC: Standing Stones of Rhayader


A page by Roger Hulm, describing Maen Serth and the 12th century legend associated with it.

Sarn-y-Bryn-Caled (Destroyed) (Timber Circle)

Gathering the Jewels


An aerial photo of the Sarn-y-Bryn-Caled reconstruction.

Clwyd-Powys Archaeological Trust (CPAT)


About a third of the way down this page is a photograph of the reconstruction of the Sarn-y-Bryn-Caled timber circle in situ.

Harlech Circle (Kerbed Cairn)

Megalithic Walks


Photos of the cairn kerb (identified in this context as 'stone circle') as well as a photo of the nearby round cairn.

I live in a small Welsh seaside town on the west coast. As well as being well placed for visiting the local sites, it's relatively easy to get to sites in south Wales, north Wales and the borders.

If you'd like to use one of the photos I've posted on this site please contact the TMA Eds who'll pass the message on (ed@themodernantiquarian.com).

Some of my favourite prehistoric sites:
Avebury (England)
