Day 3, and the atmosphere at the Eisteddfod starts to pick up. A busy day on Heritage row, with the number of people stopping by for a chat and to browse our display panels steadily growing. Visits by our past and then present Chairman all add to the mix (congratulations to Frank Olding on the launch of his new book of poetry and Ray, I’ll see you on Thursday).
Our stand today included a living history display by a medieval armorer and the production of chainmail went down a storm, and of cause all in Welsh. In the afternoon there was a well attended talk at the Amgueddfa Cymru stand on the redevelopment project at St Fagans, this proved to be an excellent opportunity to hob-nob with the great and the good in Welsh heritage and to raise the profile of the Trust…also there was free coffee and cakes!
Ken’s now legendary archaeological walk (which takes place at 4pm everyday) unfortunately had to proceed without a representative from GGAT, luckily Mark Lodwick from the National Museum was on hand to discuss all things Bronze Age.
