Twmbarlwm - Haunt of the the Celts.

A local legend says that if anyone dares to disturb a small burial mound atop Twmbarlwm mountain and near the Iron age hill fort enclosure of the Silurian Celts, then they will incur the curse of Bran and will be attacked by swarms of bees.

Bran (Raven) was a local chieftain buried within a small cairn mound during the Bronze ages.


To the west end of Twmbarlwm, earth work ditch fortifications and a larger raised circular mound were constructed around 500 BC to become a major part of the 25 year defence struggle against Roman conquest. A Norman motte and baily timber
castle made use of the excellent defensive position around the 12th  - 13th centuries AD.


In our book production Caerleon Cup of The Carpenter the site overlooks the Fisher King and Holy Grail of Legend.
