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.
