Sweyne's Howes

Sweyne's Howes is a Neolithic Burial Chamber on the east side of Rhossili Down. The name originates from the Viking called Sweyne, who was supposedly buried there (Howe is Viking for mound). Although it is now known the the structure is far older, Sweyne still holds a special significance and is possibly the founder of Swansea, which may be a derivation of his name.
