Newborough archaeology event
ON Sunday March 4 Gwynedd Archaeological Trust will run a special Day School, from 10am-4pm at the Prichard Jones Institute, presenting the findings of their ‘Exploring Newborough’ characterisation project.
Involving volunteers and local school children, this Cadw-funded project has been exploring the distinctive character of Newborough.
This will be a day of talks as well as an opportunity to enjoy a special photographic exhibition compiled by the pupils of Newborough Primary School.
Anyone can come along, the event is free but booking is essential. There will be a free lunch as well as tea and coffee.
As well as sharing the findings of the project, guest speakers will talk about a variety of topics in relation to the wider historic landscape around Newborough.
Professor Anthony Carr, author of the much acclaimed Medieval Anglesey book, will give a talk focusing on the medieval history of Newborough.
Dr Sara Elin Roberts will talk about the poet Dafydd ap Gwilym and his connection to Newborough, whilst Rob Evans will speak about what Gwynedd Archaeological Trust found during their work at the site of the new school in Newborough.
