    The iconic Pentre Ifan..

    This dolmen in Pembrokeshire, Wales was created over 5000 years ago. These sites are subject to a blanket term of "burial chambers" but today, Archaeologists are trying to come away from that limiting theory. Similar to many of these sites, no human remains have ever been found at Pentre Ifan during excavations.
