I will be working with Dyfed Archaeological Trust on their Bank Holiday ‘Lime Heritage Discovery Day’ on Monday 27th May; here’s a little information about the day if you fancy coming along!
See bottom of page for event programme.
I mentioned briefly before that I would be writing articles for other blogs and I can now reveal that I will be writing a series of 26 posts for the DigVentures blog! The first in my ‘Archaeology ABC’ series of articles is now up on their news page; ‘A is for Artefact’ is now online and ready to be read and you can find it here!
Carreg Cennen Castle, the subject of many of my fond childhood memories, is a superb example of using topography as a natural defence. The castle perches at the top of a prominent 300m high limestone outcrop and is spectacular from any viewpoint (for more pictures of the castle click here), and don’t forget the fantastic tunnel which disappears meters beneath the castle!
Thank you all for your visits and I appreciate every comment you’ve left :)
Hope you’ve enjoyed reading my posts and thoughts, will be adding more articles very soon along with a WordPress tips section and the Archaeological Music bit!
Here’s to another 5,000 views!!
A visit to Llangors Lake in early April provided an opportunity to visit the reconstructed crannog (for more info see my previous post) and to say hello to the twenty or so swans who were milling around by the jetty including this cheeky chappy who I’m pretty sure is called Clive.
We tried our hardest to ignore the weather – we climbed up the mountain (granted our cars did the actual ‘climbing’) and put on our waterproof and windproof layers, but alas! We could not overlook the weather conditions for long; the gale force gusts were attempting to knock us over once again and the snow was hitting us in the face at such a pace it physically hurt. So shortly after we arrived at the mountain, we left the mountain.
