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


Free online lecture

On Wednesday 15 July at 2pm the Royal Commission will be hosting a special pre-recorded Festival of Archaeology lecture by Dr Toby Driver on Bronze, Glass and Gold: Prehistoric and Roman Treasures from Ceredigion. This lecture will be free to view on the Royal Commission’s Facebook page and is being held in partnership with Ceredigion Museum.

This talk will showcase 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 Blaenplywf, the Penbryn Iron Age spoons from Castell Nadolig used for divining the future, and a unique Roman cut-glass bowl from Abermagwr Roman villa the talk will look 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.

Please send us your questions and comments on the lecture, and we will do our best to respond to them. We look forward to hearing from you!
