Ever been interested in having a go at some hands on family history research?
The Council for British Archaeology (CBA) with funding from Cadw is putting on two special free training sessions that will provide an Introduction to Graveyard Investigation and is being run by the CBA’s Community Archaeology Training Placement (CATP) holders based at GGAT and Dyfed Archaeological Trust.
The free one-day course involves an introductory presentation on graveyard history, gravestone evolution and iconography followed by a practical session recording features and details in a graveyard using the equipment provided.
It should be a fascinating insight into local history and provide the basic skills needed to conduct further investigations in the graveyards of your own areas .
The sessions are being run from 9:30-4:30pm
The first session is being held on Saturday 3rd March at St Teilo’s Church, Llandelio, Carmarthenshire.
The second session is being held on Saturday 10th March at St Donats Church, St Donats, Vale of Glamorgan.
