Craig y Llyn and Llyn Fawr
Llyn Fawr - or 'Big Lake' - is one of two lakes at the foot of Craig y Llyn, above the head of the Rhondda Valley. Originally somewhat smaller, in the early 20th Century it was dammed and extended as a reservoir. During the construction work a number of Bronze Age relics were found in the lake including an iron sword, spear and sickle, two bronze cauldrons and bronze axe heads. The age of the artefacts is unknown, but it is thought that the sword dates from 650BC.
