Our prehistoric sites, burial chambers and earth works set our countryside apart. Our mysterious standing stones have literally stood the test of time, so today we can still enjoy the sea views from Clynnog Dolmen on the Llyn Peninsula, and walk around the 30 stones that make up the Druid's Circle, Penmaenmawr.
We like our museums in the open air. Where it's perfectly alright to touch the exhibits. And there's no limit to their size. So we've big exhibits, like The Gop near Trelawnyd – the second largest pre-historic mound in Britain. And small ones, like Henblas Dolmen near Llangefni, Anglesey. In fact, once upon a time, Anglesey was Britain's greatest druidic centre. So we delve into Barclodiad y Gawres burial chamber near Rhosneigr, circle Castell Bryn Gwyn, Brynsiencyn - a hill fort built at ground level. Crawl into Bryn Celli Du near Llanfairpwll. And meet the ancestors at Din Lligwy, Moelfre.
These ancient giants aren't just part of our landscape, they're part of our lives. Which is why, during the 19th century Capel Garmon Burial Chamber near Betws-y-Coed was used as a stable. And why, in the tiny village of Gwytherin near Llanrwst, they built a churchyard around the ancient Stones of Gwytherin.
Let your imagination run wild at Maen y Bardd, one of a whole cluster of ancient sites at Tal y Fan in the Carneddau mountains. Discover Moel Ty Uchaf near Corwen – ‘almost perfect' according to the experts. Which is quite an achievement for something that's about 4000 years old.
