The Bryn Celli Ddu (the mound in the dark grove) is a prehistoric monument on the island of Anglesey in Wales. The monument is thought to be a prehistoric burial chamber. The mound was excavated in 1928-29 by the archaeologist W J Hemp and is thought to date back to the Neolithic period. The presence of a mysterious pillar within the burial chamber, the reproduction of the 'Pattern Stone', carved with sinuous serpentine designs, and the fact that the site was once a henge with a stone circle, and may have been used to plot the date of the summer solstice have all attracted much interest.
The best way to get to the monument is by car, with onsite parking available.
