Round Barrow(s)


This poor barrow has had to suffer some indignities. It was cut into during road construction at the beginning of the 19th century (when they found a cremation in an urn). Now power lines appear to cut across the site too. But the field is called 'Maes yr Esgyrn' - 'Field of the Bones'. It once had - still has?- a reputation for being haunted and being a rather undesirable place to frequent after dark.
