Treryn Dinas

Cliff Fort

Treryn Dinas (Cliff Fort) by Rhiannon This drawing is accompanied by some Sensible Scientific explanation. "By the antiquary, it has always been considered as the work of art, being a Druidical monument employed in some of the ceremonies and superstitions practised by them [...]; the geologist, however, considers the Logan-rock to be the work of nature alone, as granite is well known naturally to disintegrate into masses of a somewhat [cubical] form [...] thus rude spheroidal blocks, like the Logan-rock, may occasionally be formed, although an exceedingly rare combination of circumstances will be required in order to produce a block possessing this peculiar property."
