Carnedd Moel Siabod

Round Cairn


Bronze Age Shield Find Spot

Although cited by The British Museum as "..Found 1784 in a bog near Meol Hebog while cutting peat" I'm pretty certain from other sources [e.g Grahame Clarke's 1940-published 'Prehistoric England (sic!)] that this magnificent shield was found upon Moel Siabod. Coflein quotes the findspot at SH71005520... putting it at the head of the excellent ridge Daear Ddu, overlooking the natural lake Llyn y Foel. Can there be a more appropriate location? It is tempting to think it belonged to whoever was laid to rest (in whatever form) within the nearby cairn.
