Pembrokeshire Coast Archaeology Day
This year’s popular Pembrokeshire Coast Archaeology Day is taking place online. The event promises a full programme with well-known speakers on archaeological and historical themes and has been split into two sessions: morning between 10am and 12 noon and afternoon between 2pm and 4pm.
The first afternoon talk will be by the Commission’s CHERISH team (Dr Toby Driver, Louise Barker, and Daniel Hunt) on Stacks, cliffs & cauldrons: Recent fieldwork at the remarkable coastal promontory forts of the Castlemartin Training Area, Pembrokeshire.
During August 2020 the CHERISH Project team spent a week surveying and recording the remarkable later prehistoric coastal promontory forts of the Castlemartin Training Area in South Pembrokeshire.
The new fieldwork enabled the team to make centimetre-accurate 3D records of these large eroding promontory forts for future monitoring—from the better-visited sites like Flimston Bay, to the lesser-known forts of Buckspool/The Castle and Crocksydam, the spectacular Linney Head fort in the restricted live firing area, and even a newly-recorded promontory fort.
The talk includes some spectacular drone footage which will take you to the hidden parts of these dramatic coastal sites.
CHERISH is a 6-year EU-funded project in the 2014-2020 Ireland-Wales programme studying climate change and coastal heritage
