National Eisteddfod-Day 1

The first Saturday of the National Eisteddfod is always a quiet one, and today was no exception. This year all the main heritage bodies can be found next to each other in the same row.  This works really well, as hopefully we can all work together to promote not only each others work, but more importantly Welsh heritage.  GGAT (under the banner of the four Welsh Archaeological Trusts) is sandwiched between the Peoples Collection and the National Museum, having Ken Brassil next door is great , his enthusiasm and passion for archaeology is unbounded and contagious!
I arrived at the Maes this morning in glorious sunshine, this however did not last and the rain soon made its presence known, which was good as it tested how waterproof our section of the tent was.

The afternoon saw a constant stream of visitors to our stand, the Trusts new Airfield display panels and 2012 Discovery & Learning booklet went down a storm, and lots of interesting discussions about the archaeology of the area took place. Tomorrow day 2.
