Cadw Comics

Cadw have created a range of comics to tell the tales of three of Anglesey’s most fascinating sites, Bryn Celli Ddu, Barclodiad y Gawres and Llyn Cerrig Bach.

The story of the burial chamber of Bryn Celli Ddu takes readers back to the Neolithic period, around 5000 years ago. The monument was built so that the rising sun shines inside on the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year, making it a calendar made of stone.

Barclodiad y Gawres is a passage grave overlooking the western shores of Anglesey. This comic reveals the story behind the ancient community events at the site and the intricate carvings left by the Neolithic builders inside the mound.

The special watery find site of Llyn Cerrig Bach transports us back to discover how ancient items were dropped in the lake over 2000 years ago and how they were rediscovered by the extraordinary detective work of local man Williams Owen Roberts, during the Second World War.

All three comics also include fun games and activities inspired by the archaeological sites, their history and their artefacts.
