We are in the middle of a really exciting week at St Lythans and will update the blog fully later in the week. A couple of teasers though….we have found the collapsed facade at the front of the monument complete with the rubble blocking that was placed in front of the chamber when it was sealed…we have found lots of flint and neolithic pottery that probably originated from within the chamber…..we are in the process of investigating the structure of the main cairn….all very exciting!
In lieu of a full update, here are a couple of fantastic photographs taken by Adam Stanford of aerial-cam. The structure of the monument is very clear to see, and in the forecourt in front of the chamber the facade and blocking material can be seen as the grey rubble (the yellow is the natural bedrock).
