Carreg Cennen Castle:
These stunning medieval ruins were preceded by an earlier Welsh stronghold. Archaeological finds, however, suggest that the site may originally have been inhabited in lron Age and roman times. Well worth a visit! Several skeletons, possibly Mesolithic in date, were found in the cave beneath the castle. They are now in the National Museum of Wales, Cardiff.
Penhill, close to the castle is the site of a medieval settlement. Sites of Medieval Christian provenance also exist in the vicinity of Trap, including the ruins of Capel Dewi, a chapel — of-ease. Several houses in the area have possible monastic connections, including the site of a grange belonging to the monks of Talley Abbey.
