Bedd Arthur

‘Arthur’s Grave’

Located in the Preseli HillsDyfed, northwest of the village Mynachlog-ddu. Yet another of the many places where Arthur is supposed to buried, Bedd Arthur consists of twelve stones placed at regular intervals. However, there are references to an Arthur Petr who ruled Dyfed in the seventh century, so perhaps it was his grave.

The Preseli Hill can boast more Arthurian objects than any other region in Britain for such a small area. Below Bedd Arthur is Carn Arthur, with a stone perched precariously on its top. It was allegedly thrown by Arthur from Dyffryn, a farm of that name being near the Gots Fawr circle. Alternatively, it is claimed that he threw it from Henry’s Moat, about five miles away.
