Festival of Archaeology: a “Scorching Success”!





Having fun with magnifying glasses and APs at the Penparcau Fun Day
A fortnight of unbroken sunshine gave archaeological enthusiasts a memorable 2013 Festival of Archaeology in Aberystwyth. The following pictures show some of the 750+ enthusiasts who attended Royal Commission events. These included community days in Penparcau and Llanon, a lecture for the launch of the Llŷn Archaeology and History Society, a presentation on work of industrial landscape artist Falcon Hildred, and an expedition to Pen Dinas hillfort led by Dr Toby Driver. Watch out for the front cover of the next edition of the CBA Newsletter (late Summer 2013) which shows an army of enthusiasts making their way to the summit!
