What’s happening at Pentre Ifan?
A brief glance is not enough to see what is all happening in this image of Pentre Ifan. The largest and best-known dolmen of Wales forms a stage for figures that seem to have escaped from a piece of cave art. But what is that? Does a rocket also fly by?
This dolmen is special in several respects. First of all because it is a beautiful dolmen of course. The five-meter-long capstone appears to be in unstable equilibrium at three supporting points, but has despite of that been stuck in place for more than 5000 years. Pentre Ifan is also special because it is located in the middle of the Preseli Hills in Pembrokeshire. Historical ground it is. The famous bluestones of Stonehenge come from this region. The dolmen stands beautiful among the hills, not far from the coast. Once it must have been a huge burial mound, before local residents removed all the reusable building materials.
