Parc Le Breos
Wales

Parc le Breos burial chamber, Parc Cwm long cairn or Giants Grave as it is also known is a Neolithic chambered tomb dating back some 5850 years to the early Neolithc age (that is about 1500 years before Stonehenge). The earth covering has been removed to expose the stones and limestone slabs which form the central passage and side chambers. First discovered by workmen building a road in 1869, it was excavated to reveal the bones of 40 people along with animal remains and Neolithic pot shards. The central passageway and side chambers would have been covered by large limestone slabs, followed by the earth mound. The tomb lies almost perfectly North-South and is 22m long and 6m to 13m wide in a trapezoidal shape. The valley and surrounding area are owed by the Forestry Commission of Wales and in the summer is regularly used by scouts or guides as a summer camp as is the case when this panorama was taken.
