Great Cairn
Wales

105m west of Arthur's Stone on Cefn Bryn on the Gower Peninsular, Wales is the Neolithic burial tomb called Great Cairn (Maen Ceti in Welsh). It is a circular pile of stones 16m diameter above a central grave. The suggested date of the cairn is 2500BC and is one of some 60 cairns in the area though some of these 60 are attributed to farmers collecting and clearing rocks from their fields.
