The surface at this spot was practically level and a slight hollow had been made, in which the grave had been built.
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.

For the most part above 300 feet contour-line, it forms part of an elevated limestone region which is defined on the north & east by the Rivers Kenfig and Ogmore and which to the south & west drops gradually to the sandhills of Merthyr Mawr, Newton and Kenfig.

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.
Small-scale maps of Glamorgan & South Wales were the strip-maps of main roads 1st evolved as a cartographic medium by John Ogilby in 1675 - these held sway well into the 18th century. Their prosperity depended essentially upon the availabilty & supply of cheap coal and most of the larger iron & copper works had their own collieries.
Ogilby used the scale of 1 inch to the mile which had immense consequences. But collieries in this category had no schools, since the colliers' children attended the iron or copperworks schools eg.
It also provided a bearing to navigate the Nash Swatch channel. A few small colliery schools were beginning to appear during this period, before monetary grants began to flow from the government.
The game of Rugby Football proved a welcome respite from such problems and by the end of the 19th century it occupied (in inductrial Wales) the same position as Associated Football did in indutrial England.
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.
Place names & notable buildings can be seen on this section from Aberavon to Cowbridge (A48). The characteristic feature of the industrial evolution of South Wales during the first half of the 19th century was the growth & expansion of the ferrous and non-ferrous metallurgical industries.
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.
We wish to thank Sir Arthur Keith for confirming our reconstrucyion of the fragments, but we accept the responsibility for the notes here given.Flints of this or similar type are common in Bronze Age burials (Eg., at Pendine, Carm. Camb., 1919, pp 323-352) & it seems probable that the man buried on Stomry Down was a member of the "colony" of the broad-headed people which occupied the coastal regions of South Wales - coming, perhaps from the Somerset side of the Bristol Channel (A suggestion offered by Dr Cyril Fox, F. Estimating the breadth of the skull from the parieto-occipital region, which it has been possible to build up from fragments, we get a measurement of 149mm suggesting that the maximum breadth of the skull is a little greater than this.
