    Saturday 19th November


    If tombs, stone circles, castles, Neolithic and Palaeolithic art, archaeological digs and 19th century forts make your ears prick up, then make a note in your diary for this year?s Archaeology Day on November 19th.

    Held in the Merlin Theatre at Pembrokeshire College and organised by Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority and PLANED, this unique archaeological event will welcome a selection of expert speakers and give a fascinating insight into Pembrokeshire?s rich archaeological history.

Dr Chris Caple from Durham University will follow with news on the recent discoveries at the ongoing archaeological dig at Nevern Castle.

    The day will also welcome speakers Roger M Thomas, Head of Urban Archaeology at English Heritage, who will be talking about ?The 19th Century fortification of Pembrokeshire?, the Park Authority?s Archaeologist Pete Crane with his talk ?Pembrokeshire Archaeology 2011?, which will cover all the new discoveries in the National Park this year and Dr Geoff Wainwright, retired Head of Archaeology for English Heritage, with his talk ?Among Tombs and Stone Circles on the Preselis?.

    The event takes place on November 19th with tickets costing ?10 including a light lunch and morning and afternoon coffee. Registration and coffee is between 9.30am ? 10.15am and the event finishes at 4pm.
