It was not possible to place in contact with this portion a fragment of the frontal bone which was present.
A fragment of the superciliary ridge indicates that the specimen belongs to a male and that these bony ridges were strongly developed.
The rock to the left of the hollow rose abruptly to present a more or less vertical face some 3ft 6in in height, a little short of the highest point of the mound as it then existed and from this face the mound appeared to fade gradually away into the rough surrounding ground. S., for the identification of the materials), was roughly rectangular in section, with a maximum length of 4ft 6in., a maximum width of 3ft and a maximum thickness of 8in.
The hollow in the rock was lined with blocks of limestone of various sizes to enclose an area roughly 4ft by 2ft 7in. Over the capstone had been piled up, without arrangement or method, a heap of stones of various sizes; but it was noticed that these stones did not extend downwards over the sides of the capstone into the hollow which contained the grave. The disturbance of one of the forearm bones of the right arm, which rested on the spinal column, clearly showed that the earth contained in the grave had entered after the decay of the body.

Before 1870, when the chief repsonsibility for the organisation & promotion of elementary education in England & Wales was in the hands of Voluntary Societies, large numbers of schools were also promoted or erected by proprietors of individual "works" and by large industrial companies.
The OS 6 inch sheet (Glamorgan XL) records "human remains" as having been found on Stormy Down in 1870, near the southern limit of the so called "Danish Camp" but nothing appears to be known of these remains.
The main workings of the quarry had been flooded by the heavy rains and in the course of working a new face at a high level further to the east, a large slab of stone was met with, from beneath which a skull was dislodged & broken up before the character of the find was realised.
The surface at this spot was practically level and a slight hollow had been made, in which the grave had been built.
A snippet of information on maps of Glamorgan - the following is from the Glamorgan section of Ogilby's strip-map "The Road from London to St David's" first published in 1675. In South Wales during the 19th century the rapid development of heavy industries & coal mining created centres of dense populations where voluntary efforts to provide education in many areas proved inadequate & ineffective.
We wish to thank Sir Arthur Keith for confirming our reconstrucyion of the fragments, but we accept the responsibility for the notes here given.
The skull fragments, as reconstructed, are deposited in the National Museum of Wales.
The teeth suggest an adult in middle life, and show much evidence of hard wear.
The somewhat flattened character of the back of the skull is an indication that the skull may be that of an individual of the "Beaker" type and a measurement of 150mm or over for the breadth is in harmony with tis view, for it implies at least a sub-brachycephalic condition.The skeleton was found to be one of large size, strongly flexed, and lying on the left side, with head to the north (see fig.3). Those preserved have been indentified by my colleague, Mr J. The flint was found behind the pelvis of the skeleton (at the point A in fig.3) but its position, near the surface of the soil filling the grave, makes it practically certain that the implement was not in direct association wit the skeleton. A flint "knife" of somewhat similar type is said to have been found with a Beaker burial in Riley's Tumulus, on Merthyr Mawr Warren (Arch.
