Fact Nine: Garn Goch deserves well-funded archaeological research and excavation to prove – or disprove – this interpretation.
Garn Goch deserves well-funded archaeological research and excavation to prove – or disprove – this interpretation,
and the journey towards that destination has begun.
There is this website. There is an academically oriented article, and a 160 page book – 'A Pile Of Old Stones. How Wales Built Then Forgot The Largest Ancient Stone Monument In Britain.'
A personalised letter has been sent to over 50 people with some responsibility for Wales’ heritage from Mark Drakeford downwards.
Cadw has said in no uncertain terms that they think it is of national importance and worth excavating.
Dyfed Archaeological Trust has said in writing that it is now committed to excavation, and the Brecon Beacons National Park is meeting about it.
There is a dedicated YouTube documentary planned, and, crucially, the Bethlehem community has been engaged, and its views sought.
The next steps are to begin to generate some media and social media awareness, and prepare funding applications.
That's why a dedicated not-for-profit Community Interest Company, Garn Goch CIC, has been formed as the vehicle for such applications.

And, finally, that claim about being the largest ancient stone monument in Britain? Fact Ten.
