3D model of Parc le Breos, Gower

As part of a recent artist in residence project at Parc le Breos, we worked with the talented Aerial-Cam, Adam Stanford on making a 3D model of the monument.

Parc le Breos Burial Chamber, a partly restored Neolithic chambered tomb, identified in 1937 as a Severn-Cotswold type of chambered long barrow. It was built around 6,000 years ago, in the early Neolithic. It is located in Coed y Parc Cwm on the Gower Peninsula, near Swansea, South Wales.

For viewing the 3D model use a mouse with a wheel to zoom, left click and hold to rotate and right click to move. Try rotating the model in full screen mode and switch rendering option to Matcap or wireframe (bottom right). A good Internet connection is required along with a compatible Browser such as Google Chrome.

Take a look at the detail on this model, it’s incredible!
