Cyfrol sy'n olrhain hanes beddrodau megalithig Cymru. Er eu bod yn filoedd o flynyddoedd oed bellach, mae eu hystyr yn dal yn guddiedig yn eu hadeiladwaith deniadol. Ceir yn y llyfr hwn luniau sy'n ymgais i fwrw goleuni newydd ar y beddrodau ac ar hyn y maen nhw'n eu dadlennu i ni am ein hynafiaid.

A volume exploring the origins of Wales's megalithic tombs. Although thousands of years old, these evocative structures still keep their meanings hidden. This book, full of illustrations and stunning new photography, sheds fresh light on them and what they reveal to us today about the lives of our ancestors.
This detailed, gripping book studies megalithic tombs in Wales, looking at who created them, when, why and how. A beautifully produced book from the National Museum Wales Books, it particularly focuses on what these tombs can tell us about the people who built them, their tools, rituals and beliefs. In doing so, it paints a fascinating picture of Wales’s early society, particularly of how people dealt with death in 4000-3000 BC.

The book goes into detail about how the tombs could have been constructed, including, for some, how their magnificent cap stones would have been put in place, and what we can know about the way people lived among them and the evidence of rituals. This is all illustrated throughout with drawings and photographs. The book is very careful to distinguish what we can know, with great detail about the current research, what we can only guess at and what we still do not know. It goes through all the different kinds of tombs in Wales, and compares them with megalith tombs elsewhere and the different kinds of tombs and monuments that came later, like Stonehenge.

This is an excellent overview of a fascinating subject and will be of interest to anyone visiting the tombs and anyone interested in archaeology generally. There is a lot of wonderful extra material on the period – such as stage-by-stage photographs of the clay reconstruction of a skull found in Penywyriod, added as a detail to a piece on what we know of their skulls and DNA. All together, Steve Burrow has really succeeded in bringing the subject to life.
