Carn Gilfach

Chambered Tomb


According to the information on Coflein, Carn Gilfach has a huge capstone 13'6" long, 8' wide and 3' thick. It is supported by orthostats 18" high underneath - it was probably made by undercutting a natural boulder. In the 19th century, charcoal, pottery and flint were found inside. It was once thought that another tomb lay close by, but this is probably a natural feature. Which of course doesn't rule it out as being used as a tomb, one assumes.. Rhiannon Posted by Rhiannon
