Default Old Welsh Architecture...

Firstly we have St Tysilio's Church- roughly built in 1400- though the site dates back to 700ad.
Second is the Tower of Dolbadarn Castle- built in roughly 1220-1230.
Lastly some pics of Bryn Celli Ddu- a Neolithic burial chamber dating back to roughly 3000BC. Though some stones here have been carbon dated back to the Mesolithic period,some 5-10,000BC..!

I'm surprised it was easy for you to access the inside of the mound!

Thanks DyaneG..
Kelly- it's pretty much open all year round- only a perimeter gate is closed in the evening.
To my knowledge there's never been any "mischief" there- either due to its fairly isolated location,or perhaps people think it may be haunted..!!

Hard to comprehend how old these structures are. Thanks for sharing.
