Brief History Paganism: 

Paganism represents a wide variety of traditions that emphasize reverence for nature and a revival of ancient polytheistic and animistic religious practices.  Paganism is not a traditional religion per se because it does not have any official doctrine, but it does have some common characteristics joining the great variety of traditions. One of the common beliefs is the divine presence in nature and the reverence of the natural order in life. Spiritual growth is related to the cycles of the Earth and great emphasis is placed on ecological concerns. Monotheism is almost universally rejected within Paga

Description

This was quite hard to find - but worth the search!

There's a parking sign for the burial chamber near a farm and room for about two cars on the right of the road. We were lucky to find the farmer who told us how to get to it. Just follow the path, through the Kissing Gate and walk on through a field with sheep and you'll find this wonderful Neolithic site about 100 yards on the left.

Set in such a tranquil location, within beautiful countryside, the Burial Chamber is well cared for and dates back to between 1,500 and 2,200 BC. There's a little fence around it, but you can get in, and you can get into the Burial chamber too. Time stands still here, it's so peaceful. 

In 1852, a unique find of an ironwork firedog was discovered here. The beautiful fire dog is pictured above. It lay on its side, with a large stone placed at each end and was deeply buried. Its careful placing and unbroken state suggests that it was deliberately placed as an offering to the Gods.

There is  a long-established tradition of depositing metalwork offerings in the lakes, rivers and bogs of Wales during the Bronze and Iron Ages. Originally one of a pair, the firedog was a high status offering and beautifully made. It has been estimated that it may have taken over 3 years to create

If you get the chance, go and spend some time in this beautiful place. It's worth it!
