2018 has been an important year for archaeology in Wales – with new discoveries, new projects, and new partnerships flourishing. To give you a taste of what has been happening, the Clwyd-Powys Archaeological Trust is pleased to welcome you to Machynlleth for a series of archaeological and historical talks, along with exhibitions from local groups. The talks, by experts who have spent many years researching in both the Clwyd-Powys region and across Wales, will include features on excavations from prehistoric to medieval, innovative heritage projects, hands on demonstrations of ancient crafts, and more.

Speakers will include:

Bill Britnell MBE – former director, Clwyd-Powys Archaeological Trust

Fiona Gale – former County Archaeologist, Denbighshire

Andrew Davidson – Chief Archaeologist, Gwynedd Archaeological Trust

Updates from the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments in Wales

There will also be a demonstration of prehistoric stone carving from Vic Pardoe, an expert in the archaeology of the Elan Valley region and crafter of ancient tools in metal, stone, and wood. Displays from local societies and projects will be on show.
