Bryn Cader Faner.

Bryn Cader Faner is a Bronze Age round cairn which lies to the east of the small hamlet of Talsarnau in the Ardudwy area of Gwynedd in Wales.[1] The diameter is 8.7 metres (29 ft) and there are 18 thin jagged pillars which jut upwards from the low cairn.[2] It is thought to date back to the late third millennium BC. The site was disturbed by 19th century treasure-seekers, who left a hole in the center indicating the position of a cist or a grave. Originally there may have been about 30 pillars, each some 2 metres (7 ft) long. However, before the Second World War, the army removed some stones on the east side.[3]
