Bronze, Glass and Gold: Prehistoric and Roman Treasures from Ceredigion

This talk showcases rare and special prehistoric and Roman finds from the county of Ceredigion in Wales, a number of which are of national importance for Wales and the wider UK.

From a tiny gold prehistoric ‘sun disc’ found in Cwmystwyth to the Rhos Rydd Late Bronze Age shield from Blaenplwyf, the Penbryn Iron Age spoons from Castell Nadolig used for divining the future, and a unique Roman cut-glass bowl from Abermagwr Roman villa—this talk looks at some of the stories of luck and chance behind the archaeological discoveries. Many of the finds mentioned in the talk can be seen in the Bowen Gallery of the Ceredigion Museum, Aberystwyth.
