Dates for your diary – ANNUAL LECTURE PROGRAMME 2017

The next talk as part of the museum's Annual Lecture programme will be given by Elizabeth Walker, Specialist Curator for Palaeolithic and Mesolithic Archaeology at the National Museums Wales. The title of the talk is "The First Visitors to Tenby: Evidence for the Early Prehistoric Use of Caves" and will take place at 7.00pm on Friday 14 July.

There are a number of important caves that lie close to Tenby and many have undergone excavation, uncovering a wealth of archaeological information and finds. One of these tools, now on display in the museum, comes from Hoyle's Mouth Cave and dates back around 34,000 years ago. This tool provides some early evidence for anatomically modern humans like ourselves in the area at an early time.

The talk will present the evidence that has been recovered from recent work at Hoyle's Mouth and Little Hoyle Caves as well as describing the finds from the many caves on Caldey Island and in Pembroke. It will focus on new analysis and dating of the stone tools from the Hoyle Caves. It will also describe some of the now extinct animals that once roamed the area including woolly rhinoceros, mammoth, bear and reindeer to present a picture of the changing climates, environments and life in prehistoric times.

The next talk will be at 7.00pm on Friday 28 July and will be given by Adrian Osbourne of Swansea University. The talk is "The Fifth Notebook of Dylan Thomas: a look at the recently discovered and previously unknown notebook of his poetry".
