"Ancient Burial Site"

The Parc Cwm Long Cairn or the Parc le Breos Burial Chamber, is a neolithic chambered long barrow found within the Medieval deer park of Parc le Breos. The burial site is trapezoidal in shape and has been partially restored, giving visitors a fairly accurate idea of what the site would have looked like before nature and time led to its decline. Excavations at the site have discovered the remains of around 40 humans, some animal remains and fragments of pottery. Evidence suggests that those buried here belonged to a hunter-gatherer tribe. The cairn is believed to be a part of the Severn-Cotswald type i.e. it was constructed at a site that was already considered significant by the people of that time. Parc Cwm Long Cairn is open to visitors, and is accessible from the car park at the entrance of Parc le Breos.
