Pentre Ifan Burial Chamber near Newport
Pentre Ifan is the name of an ancient manor and gives its name to the largest and best preserved neolithic Burial Chamber (dolmen) in Wales.
The Pentre Ifan Dolmen is a collection of 7 principal stones. The largest is the huge capstone, 5 metres long, 2.4 metres wide and 0.9 metres thick. It is estimated to weigh 16 tonnes and rests on the tips of three other stones, some 2.5 metres off the ground. The remaining three, form an entrance and the third, at an angle, appears to block the doorway.
The dolmen dates from approximately 3,500 B.C. and has been identified as a communal burial tomb. The existing stones formed the entrance and main chamber of the tomb, which would originally have been covered by a large mound of stones about 30 metres long and 17 m wide.[
