Don’t miss next week’s Royal Commission’s Christmas lecture on ‘Hillfort and Community 2023: The Pendinas Project’
Please join us on Thursday 7 December at 5pm, for this year’s Christmas Lecture on ‘Hillfort and Community 2023: Pendinas Project’ by Beca Davies, and Luke Jenkins. This event will be held in the Drwm of the National Library of Wales, Aberystwyth, and live streamed on Zoom.
The exciting Pendinas Community Archaeology Project was begun in Spring 2023 by Dyfed Archaeological Trust in partnership with the Royal Commission. This project seeks to better understand and protect the archaeology and wildlife of the hillfort. There have been two exploratory excavations of the site this year led by Dyfed Archaeological Trust working with a large team of volunteers and a full programme of community engagement led by the Royal Commission.
Luke Jenkins, DAT archaeologist, and Beca Davies, the Commission’s Community Outreach Officer Pendinas Project, have been fully involved with the project from the beginning and are well-placed and looking forward to giving an overview of the project so far, at this year’s Christmas Lecture.
This project is supported by the local community and funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Cadw.
