Archaeological Open Day

GGAT, in partnership with Swansea Museum, will be holding its annual Open Day on Saturday 19th July 2008 as part of its National Archaeology Week events program.

National Archaeology Week is an annual event organised nationally by the Council for British Archaeology and aims to give everyone the opportunity to learn about the heritage that is all around us by becoming involved in archaeology.

There will be hands-on activities suitable for all the family, and exhibitions from a wide range of local heritage groups. Trace your family tree, meet a re-enactment group of medieval bowmen, ‘Mibion y Ddraig’, taste Roman food, or join the young archaeologist club.

You can get your hands dirty making prehistoric-style pots, build a wattle and daub fence, or try your hand at prehistoric cave art and much more.

You can bring your mystery artefacts along for identification by our Finds Liaison Officers and experts from Swansea Museum at our Finds Roadshow. Talk with professional archaeologists about the archaeology within your community and view what archaeology exists is in your local area as well as learning more about the Historic Environment.
