Carn Goch, Penllergaer
Dyma weddillion o garn o'r Oes Efydd ar Fynydd Carn Goch. Cloddiwyd y safle yn 1855 gan y sgwier lleol John Dillwyn Llewelyn o Blas Penllergaer. Daethpwyd o hyd i sawl cistfaen yn cynnwys cyfanswm o naw wrn pridd. Mae wyth o'r naw wrn a ddarganfuwyd bellach yn yr Amgueddfa Brydeinig yn Llundain tra bod un ohonynt ym meddiant Amgueddfa Abertawe. Oddi fewn y cistfeini darganfuwyd hefyd esgyrn dynol a lludw. Cafwyd hefyd esgyrn twrch a ddau ddarn o fflint. Cyn 1800, yn ol pob son, gorchuddiwyd y garn gan domen o gerrig chwe troedfedd o uwchder. Rhywbryd ar ol 1856 codwyd adeilad ar y gofeb y mae ei ol yno o hyd.

The remains of a Bronze Age barrow on Mynydd Carn Goch. The site was excavated in 1855 by local squire, John Dilwyn Llewelyn of Penllergaer Mansion. The excavation uncovered several cistfaens containing a total of nine urns. Eight of the urns are kept at the British Museum while the other is in possession of Swansea Museum. Human bones (including possible wild boar bones), ashes and two flint implements were also found within the cairn. Prior to 1800 it was said that the cairn was covered with a six foot high mound of stones. Sometime after 1856 a building was constructed upon the monument the remains of which can still be seen today. Carn Goch (Red Cairn) gave the common its name.
