Snow leads to burial chambers find in Vale of Glamorgan

Help

Two bronze age burial chambers that are 4,000 years old have been discovered in the Vale of Glamorgan after a little help from this year's wintry weather.

Snow covering fields at Beacons Down helped archaeologists from the Royal Commission on Ancient and Historical Monuments spot the mounds that have never been found before.
