FORTHCOMING EVENTS AND ACTIVITIES 

Saturday 29th September 2018

A guided walk to visit the excavation of

ST ISHMAEL DESERTED MEDIEVAL VILLAGE

During late September Dyfed Archaeological Trust will be excavating a deserted medieval village on the foreshore of the Towy estuary, close to Ferryside, Carmarthenshire. A guided walk has been organised for those who would like to visit the excavation. The walk will start at Ferryside. There will be an opportunity to examine other archaeological sites on the foreshore on the way to the excavation.

Information on the St Ishmael deserted medieval village can be found on the Trust's website: http://www.dyfedarchaeology.org.uk/projects/stishmael.htm

Details: Meet at Ferryside car park (by the railway station) at 1pm and set off along foreshore to the excavations. The round trip is about 5km (3.2miles). Return to car park by about 4.30pm. Spaces are limited, so booking is essential.

Please book your free place by contacting Jenna Smith j.smith@dyfedarchaeology.org.uk 01558 825995

 

HELP US TO RECORD THE MEMORIALS OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR

We are looking at how the First World War was commemorated in communities across southwest Wales . We are recording all forms of war memorials. Most are stone monuments or plaques, but they sometimes can be public buildings - often named Memorial Hall or Neuadd Goffa.

We would very much like your help to record these monuments, and if you have a camera (most phone cameras are perfectly adequate) and would like to send us your photographs please do.

What we need to know is:

Where is the memorial?

Please send us details of where it is located; either a grid reference, a latitude or longitude (available from Google maps - look up Tips and tricks) or an address.

A photograph to show the whole memorial in its setting perhaps it sits inside an enclosure, or a plaque is positioned in a prominent position within a public building

Photographs of the inscriptions, ideally close enough to be able to read them. These may include casualties from other wars such as the Boer War (1899-1902), or the Second World War (1939-45).

If there is an inscription of the monumental mason, please photograph that too.

Photograph any other points of interest you notice.

Send us your photographs by email or CD see contact details below.

The information you provide will be added to the Historic Environment Record, which will be available on the website: www.archwilio.org.uk

If you would like to make a more detailed record on a special form in which the size, form, construction of the memorial is recorded, then please get in contact.

Perhaps you are part of a group and have carried out your own research into local memorials? If so we'd love to hear from you.
