Archaeology Day

Posted by Tenby Museum on Nov 21, 2017 Blog No Comments

Last Saturday (18 November) Tenby Museum had a stall at the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority’s annual Archaeology Day (event organised in conjunction with PLANED) at Pembrokeshire College.

The event featured a number of stalls from heritage organisations and a series of fascinating talks on Pembrokeshire archaeology, including a talk by PCNPA Community Archaeologist Delun Gibby on the importance of community archaeology.

The museum brought along a series of fascinating artefacts from its reserve archaeological collection including a mammoth tooth and numerous finds from Hoyle’s Mouth Cave. ¬†We are hoping next year to get involved in additional archaeological events using our collection, including an outreach project to schools with Delun and working with an artist who works with autistic groups.
