taken 9 years ago, near to Rhosson, Pembrokeshire/Sir Benfro, Great Britain

Clegyr Boia ancient settlement
Clegyr Boia ancient settlement
An oblong outcrop with rocky protrusions at both ends, the central area being dipped and clearly an ideal dwelling place, with a 360% view of the surrounding territory. Excavation has revealed signs of neolithic settlement (pottery, axes and hut circles) from 4000 BC: an idea of how it might have been can be seen here LinkExternal link .
Habitation continued into the iron age when it is likely that earth ramparts were constructed to defend the rectangular enclosure.
