Divining Ddraig: 5 Stones & a Star

A new video to follow "A Minstrel, a Dragon & a Shiny Summer Morning" at Pentre Ifan - both videos include the beautiful harp music of Robby Neil.

Three counties, Pembrokeshire, Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion are blessed by this sacred energy, Y Ddraig Ffraed. Countless prehistoric earthworks, structures are built upon Her - 67 medieval churches and chapels, 4 abbeys and a cathedral upon some of them.
In this video are 5 stones, 4 standing, one likely fallen. All of them in Pembrokeshire, just to the west of Newport. There's also Cerrig-y-Gof (Stones of the Smith) and C-y-g, perhaps a hidden reference to cygnus, the swan. The Goddess and Saint, Ffraed, is a Swan Maiden, the birds are sacred to Her. There may also be an archaeoastronomical connection to the constellation Cygnus and it's journeys as they relate to Earth. Two of the featured stones are only a few yards from the 5-pointed star chambers. One has several mysterious cup marks on it. Another, only a few small fields east of there, may have them too.
This is a video for the subscribers' blog, The Song of Ffraed.
