Capel Garmon

Capel Garmon

The megalithic site of Capel Garmon is located in the farmland southeast of the village Betws -y-Coed in Merionethshire in Wales. It is a hilly landscape in the rock outcrops and wetlands lie. The only one kilometer away from the Afon (whale river) Conwy plant has been restored. The shape of the eroded Cairns is marked on the ground. He shows some parallels with the widespread in South Wales Cotswold-Severn tradition. Especially the T-shaped chamber with lateral access in the hill is roughly identical to one of the chambers in the Ty Isaf plant, but the false door is missing. The corridor and the oval middle and side chambers are largely preserved. Today's access leads to the west chamber. It dates from the 19th century, when the plant was used as a stable. The original entrance is on the south side. Only one large capstone 4.3 meters long was preserved over the western chamber. The plant was already robbed when it was excavated in 1925. Only a Flintabschlag and shattered crockery were found. A little digging provided clues to activities prior to the construction of the Cairns. These findings include a skull fragment.
