Passage grave in Anglesey, Wales, under a cairn <50 metres in diameter. This tomb is linked to the Boyne culture by the decoration on the underside of the capstone; such decoration is rare outside Ireland, although it occurs on another Anglesey passage grave, at Barclodiad Y Gaw-res. Another distinctive feature of this tomb is the four concentric stone circles surrounding the chamber, the outer one surrounding the base of the cairn.
