National Eisteddfod-Day 2

Sunday on the Maes started slowly and somewhat damp, however, the smiling faces of Sue and Charles Hill gracing the GGAT stand soon raised the spirits. 

 The Bronze Age seemed to be the theme of the day on Heritage row, with GGAT making pigmy cups, the National Museum creating ancestor figures, while in the afternoon Cadw demonstrated how to build coil pots  – children visiting the Maes never had it so good! 

Ken from the National Museum accompanied by Paul from GGAT led a walk in the afternoon out to Maes Gwyrdd to visit the location of one of the Bronze Age barrows and to discuss the early history of the Maes site and Cyril Fox’s excavations during the late 1930’s.

 With the sun finally gracing the runways of Llandow day 2 came to a splendid end…and I didn’t get wet on the cycle home!
