Round barrow on Cadair Bronwen
Round barrow on Cadair Bronwen
The modern cairn is built on the flat upper surface of a large Bronze Age round barrow, probably a burial cairn, roughly 23m in diameter, which was designated as a Scheduled Monument LinkExternal link probably in 2006. Also shown here, closer to the camera, is a large boulder. Between them they have attracted the name Bwrdd Arthur (Arthur's Table) on some maps, although it's not clear whether that name is given to the burial cairn or to the rock.

A tumulus (plural tumuli) is a mound of earth and stones raised over a grave or graves. Tumuli are also known as barrows, burial mounds. In Britain they mainly date from Neolithic to the Bronze Age (2900 - 800BC), although some are later.
