is Ros Briagha?
I have been fascinated by ancient monuments since I was a child, and
this part of Wales where I live has a large number, dating right back
to 30,000 years ago, and with a lot of megalithic sites, from 6,000-4,000
years ago. I have been to most of these sites at least once, and visited
some of them many times, always finding new insights and information.
My Megalithic journeys are your opportunity to join me on a trip out
to some of these sites. I will focus on both the archaeological, physical
aspects, and also on the magical, spiritual energies, and how we can
tune into these and use them ourselves. Depending on the time of the
year, we can create a ceremony together to honour the site and the season,
and bring us closer to Nature and our ancestors.
These trips happen at various times, and it is best to contact me for
details of when the next one will be taking place. Each trip will take
most of the day, starting at 10 am from my house, and including a stop
for a pub lunch at one of the friendly local inns, which are often a
history lesson in themselves. I am happy to take along up to 4 people,
and group bookings are also welcome. The cost will be £25 per
person, and this will include maps and info on each location for you
Megalithic Tour Routes.
1. Stones of the
A tour around some of the standing stones that mark a 20 mile corridor
from Garn Goch hill fort above Llandeilo to the sea at Ferryside. We will
visit six standing stones in all, and see how our ancestors might have
used them to guide their journeys.
2. Dolmens and Burial chambers around Carmarthen.
There are many dolmens in west Wales, each slightly different, but all
with strong atmospheres. We will visit six in all, in various states of
repair, and see how our ancestors chose to honour their dead in a lasting
3. The Gower.
This peninsula to the south of Swansea is rich in monuments, and we will
visit both standing stones, burial chambers and Cat hole Rock cave, home
to our ancestors 30,000 years ago.
4. Stone Circles of the Prescelli mountains.
The site of the famous bluestones of Stonehenge, the Prescellis are still
full of mysterious monuments, and on this trip we will focus on the stone
circles there. I have a very personal interest here, as two of the circles
we will visit are modern ones, designed and built by me and my friends.
5. Hill forts along the Towy Valley.
People have lived in this area for a long time, and on this trip we will
visit some of the places they called Home. These range from the 11 hectare
Garn Goch through to Merlins’ Hill, where folk lived before moving
down to where Carmarthen now stands.
