Prehistoric Anglesey tomb to be excavated for archaeology event

"Residents will get the chance to see the dig in action at the Neolithic Bryn Celli Ddu site during a fortnight-long event which ends with a Summer Solstice celebration.

An ancient tomb on Anglesey will be excavated this summer as part of a two-week long archeology event.

The Neolithic passage tomb of Bryn Celli Ddu is one of Wales’s best-known prehistoric monuments.

The fortnight-long event starts on June 9 and will culminate in a public open day and celebration of the Summer Solstice from June 19-22.

The excavation of the tomb will be led by the Welsh Government’s historic environment service Cadw and Manchester Metropolitan University.

It is hoped it will break new ground exploring the landscape’s ‘rock art’- a term used in archaeology to describe the human-made markings discovered in natural stone."
