Parc le Breos Cwm Burial Chamber - This site is set in a small hollow surrounded by earlier Palaeolithic (Old Stone Age) cave locales and later industrial evidence.

The tomb itself is a reconstruction of a Cotswold-Severn typology, and is dated to the Neolithic. This type of monument is of a very definite shape and construction and many other monuments of this style are found in south Wales and central England.

Bronze Age

Garn Fawr - a multiphase promontory fort on Strumble head; This fort may be either a defensive structure or a fortified domestic enclosure. Although received wisdom states that this is an Iron Age structure we explore the possibility that it has earlier origins.

The site may have been occupied during the early medieval period, and is surrounded by ancient enclosures and field systems. The fort commands magnificent yet strategic views of the cliffs below, the sea, and a sweeping panorama of Inland Pembrokeshire.

On a clear day the Wicklow Mountains of Ireland and those of Snowdonia can be seen.
