Tips

  • Dan Hobson

    Barclodiad y Gawres is a Neolithic burial chamber that overlooks Porth Trecastell (Cable Bay). It is an example of a cruciform passage burial chamber and is renowned for its decorative stones; all with spirals, chevrons, and zig-zags carved into them. It is one of two burial chambers on Anglesey that have been reconstructed and covered with their original mounds, the other is Bryn Celli Ddu.

    Spiral and zigzag patterns have been found in the burial chamber. The three auxiliary chambers served burials and ritual acts were performed in the main chamber. Remains of hare, frog and eel have been found.
    The main chamber is not to commit and secured by a lattice door.
