Castell Nadolig and the Penbryn Spoons: A new investigation
Free online talk by Dr Toby Driver and Professor Andrew Fitzpatrick: ‘Castell Nadolig and the Penbryn Spoons: A new investigation’.
9 February 2023, 5pm–6pm.
Join the Commission’s Senior Aerial Investigator, Dr Toby Driver, and Professor Andrew Fitzpatrick (University of Leicester) on Thursday 9 February when they reveal recent discoveries and research relating to Castell Nadolig hillfort, near Cardigan, at a Society of Antiquaries lecture, ‘Castell Nadolig and the Penbryn Spoons: A new investigation’.
The Penbryn spoons are among the most ornate examples of a rare group of Iron Age artefacts known from Britain, Ireland and northern France. They were unearthed in 1829 at Castell Nadolig hillfort in west Wales, probably from a disturbed burial, and are on display in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. Now, a new investigation of their findspot has revealed a wealth of hidden archaeology.
