Description : Twyn Bryn March Cairn IV is a well-preserved and largely intact example of a burial monument of the Early Bronze Age (c. 2000-1500 BC). It is 5.5m in diameter and stands 0.2m high. The site stands some 8m east of the footpath over Twyn Bryn March on the ridge between Nant Milgatw and Rassau. It forms an important element in a wider prehistoric funerary and ritual landscape and retains significant archaeological potential with a strong possibility of the presence of intact burial remains and preserved prehistoric ground surfaces below the monument.
