Pen Llithrig y Wrach

Round Cairn


The Gwynedd Archaeological Trust cites the summit cairn of Pen Llithrig y Wrach as being of Bronze Age origin (PRN 3799):

'A low, flat-topped cairn 4m diameter with a turf cover over small stones, is on the summit of Pen Llithrig y Wrach at 799m. A number of edge-set stones protrude through the eroded surface.

I concur, the construction and positionning making this likely in my view.
