|Description ||Illustration of 'The Corbalengi Stone' near Tresaith. The stone, nearly 5 feet high, stands in a field just off the A487. |
The inscription on the stone translates as 'The Heart of Belgus the Ordovician lies here', and referrs to a Romano-British person living in Wales during the 5th-6th century CE.
In 1850 the mound on which the stone stands was excavated by a local vicar and a quantity of silver and bronze coins and a golden chain from the time of the Emperor Vespasian (69-79 AD) were found.
Another dig unearthed a quantity of burnt bones and also bits of weaponry, possibly of the Roman period.
