Ancient Welsh Monuments

One gloomy February I began my quest to hunt down ancient Welsh monuments.  I trudged through muddy fields, forded turbulent streams and climbed over wind ravaged hilltops through hail, rain and snow with prehistorian Dewi Bowen and film maker Melvyn Williams.  Neolithic and Bronze Age burial chambers, ceremonial  circles and standing stones lie scattered like quoits across the landscape of Wales and are as striking today as they were five thousand years ago.  Coming face to face with these symbols both of a long lost culture and of continuity in a rapidly changing world has had a profound impact on me.

I get a sense that the people who put these on the landscape, as works of art or spiritual works or simply something pragmatic like marking the way; they put them there to last.  Not just their lifetimes but through civilisations that have forgotten about them.  We have no idea who these people were. Just fragments of legend and there’s something really poignant about that.
