Last Friday (14 July) saw Dr Elizabeth Walker, Specialist Curator for Palaeolithic and Mesolithic Archaeology at National Museums Wales, give a fascinating and extremely well-attended talk at the museum. The talk was entitled¬†The First Visitors to Tenby: Evidence for the Early Prehistoric Use of Caves.”

The fully illustrated¬†talk explored both the neanderthal and humanoid occupation of cave sites around south Pembrokeshire, before and after the Ice Ages, and comprehensively detailed the finds that were left by these early occupants. ¬† Much of Dr Walker’s talk concentrated on the finds from Hoyles Mouth Cave in Penally and included as illustrative material many of the finds from this cave site that are on display in the museum’s substantial archaeology gallery.

Dr Walker was introduced and thanked by museum trustee John Ross and there were a few questions from the audience.
