Round Barrow(s)


As we didnt take a trip down to the barrow fieldnotes would be a bit of a fib, so a short misc note.
The barrow is at the bottom of a river valley (the Afon Aled) unlike the other barrows we'd seen this morning which were on hill tops and crests.
Coflein says that in 1892 human bones were found in a cist or chamber, maybe bronze artifacts too.
From the road I couldnt tell whether there was any stones protruding from the barrow which still looked about two metres tall and enclosed behind a wire fence, a closer look seems warrented.
