Carreg Coetan Burial Chamber
Carreg Coetan Burial Chamber
Carreg Coetan is a Neolithic dolmen composed of four upright stones topped by a very large capstone. Only two of the upright stones actually support the capstone, which might seem precariously perched until you consider that it has stood this way for thousands of years!

The capstone is supposedly a replica of the summit of Carn Ingli (some imagination is required!). Excavations of the site have turned up remains of Grooved ware, Beaker ware, and cremated bones.

Access is very easy, and the site is within an easy walk of central Newport.

Do not confuse this monument with the burial chamber of Coetan Arthur on St David's Head in Pembrokeshire.
