Trefael stone
Trefael stone
This ancient monument, marked on the OS map as 'cup-marked stone' close to a footpath running south from Bayvil, has recently been excavated by archaeologists from the University of Bristol. As a result it has been re-classified from a standing stone to the capstone of a portal dolmen. Beads, pottery, charcoal and human bone have been discovered and further examination and radio-carbon dating is intended. The stone carries 75 cup-marks. It is thought the site was used over a period of many thousands of years. See LinkExternal link and LinkExternal link for further information.
