The newest and best of archaeology in Wales.

The programme showcases current innovative projects and fieldwork and provides opportunities for hands-on workshops, CPD, networking, and guided visits to some of the most iconic and interesting sites in Wales.

Leading British archaeologists will be on hand running sessions, giving presentations and leading visits. Professor Mike Parker-Pearson will be exploring the latest evidence regarding the origin of the Stonehenge Bluestones – visit the potential quarry site and decide for yourself! Professor Carenza Lewis will provide her reflections on archaeology in Wales as the keynote address at Saturday’s formal dinner and Professor David Austin will be exploring the myths, landscape and future of Strata Florida Abbey.
