These stunning pictures reveal the full scale of a major new prehistoric site in Anglesey.

Experts working at a dig at the Bryn Celli Ddu mound near Llanddaniel discovered the Bronze Age site next to it.
Excavation work suggests the site is an ancient ritual landscape that includes a Bronze age cairn, and had major significance for prehistoric people.

The work has already uncovered 12 examples of rock art carvings in the landscape around Bryn Celli Ddu, along with a pit filled with pottery and worked stone tools.

Radiocarbon dating has given a date of 1,900 BC, with finds of flint tools and a double kerb of large stones, some of them weighing over a tonne each.

The next stage of the dig will take place between June 8 and July 7.
