Parc y Meirw ( Field of the Dead) / A Stone Alignment .
The stones are about 1km along the lane east of Llanllawer Church.
The stones are incorporated into the bank between a large field , enclosed in
the19th century , and the lane.
These mysterious alignments may be associated with ancestor worship , fertility cults ,
used as astonomical devices , for religious or ceremonial purposes -
perhaps marking a processional route.
This Bronze Age site is the only known Stone Row in West Wales and of its eight
or more stones, four are still standing , two being used as Gateposts -
one of these completely covered with gorse
Also one large prostrate stone can be seen from the field ,
and another massive one from the lane .
In folkore the name "Field of the Dead" may refer to an ancient Battle fought at this site.
