Description


Summary Description and Reason for Designation
The following provides a general description of the Scheduled Monument. An annular bank of rubble 3.5 m wide with an overall diameter of approx 20 m. Possible traces of inner and outer kerb stones, but very irregular and robbed. The enclosed area is full of field clearance debris. Possibly either a kerb cairn or ring cairn; the proximity of the Garreg standing stone (Me 57b), only 25 m to the NW, adds further interest. The monument is of national importance for its potential to enhance our knowledge of prehistoric ritual and funerary practises. It retains significant archaeological potential, with a strong probability of the presence of associated archaeological features and deposits. The structure itself may be expected to contain archaeological information concerning chronology and building techniques. The scheduled area comprises the remains described and an area around them within which related evidence may be expected to survive.
