Prehistoric Ancestors - Ritual in the Carneddau Mountains

Waun Llanfair

A guided walk, Saturday 14th July 2007, 11am. to 4pm.

Meet near Plas Heulog, top of Mountain Road/Valley Road, Llanfairfechan.
Distance, about 6 miles, fairly arduous, bring lunch.

Boots and waterproofs essential.
The walk will be led by John Griffith Roberts.

The walk is being carried out as part of the CBA National Archaeology Week. It will provide a close look at an area of prehistoric landscape that is presently the subject of a research project being carried out as part of the Cadw-funded Pan-Wales Prehistoric funerary and Ritual Monument Survey. The core of the project is a palaeo-environmental study of an area of prehistoric funerary and ritual monuments in an area of upland above Llanfairfechan and Penmaenmawr, Conwy. These monuments include a major stone circle, The Druids’ Circle, two large ring cairns and numerous smaller cairns of various sizes and designs. Not far to the north of these is the Neolithic stone axe factory of Graig Lwyd. This concentration of funerary monuments may be associated.
