The St Lythans burial chamber
The St Lythans burial chamber
This Neolithic chambered tomb is older than Stonehenge or the Great Pyramid of Giza, at about 6,000 years. It remains archaeologically unexcavated although an antiquarian, one William Collings Lukis, did dig here in 1875, leaving poorly recorded notes and found 'human remains and coarse pottery in debris thought to have been thrown out of the interior and filling a hollow in the forecourt'. The finds that survived have been on display in Cardiff at the National Museum and include a fine leaf shaped flint arrowhead, flight flakes from arrows and a fragment of polished stone axe.
