Dolmen / Quoit / Cromlech


I visited this site in August with my daughter who is 7, and my niece and nephew ( 6 year old twins ). Din Lligwy is the remains of a village, and consists of several round huts, and a border wall which is over a metre thick. The site inspires imagination, and the children asked what the people were trying to keep out with such large walls. The "Chieftan's" hut is clearly identifiable. Further along is the remains od a burial chamber - we sheltered under the huge cap-stone as the rain drove down outside. The silence was total and evocative. I have visited many of the sites in Anglesey and North Wales as a child, but unfortunately I have forgotten the name of most of them. Posted by Slim
