sweynehowes_clip_image008The Sweyne Howes are 2 Neolithic burial stones found on the eastern slope of Rhossili Downs, towards Llangennith.

The tombs are approximately 300 feet apart and were constructed by the peninsula's very first farmers. The northern most stones are the best preserved, although neither anywhere near approaches the fine condition of the similar construction on Cefn Bryn - Arthur's Stone.

Despite their name (Sweyne was the Viking king who is believed to have given his name to Swansea) the tombs do not mark the grave of Vikings.
