15th and 26th July: Living Landscape Lectures – Archaeology in Blaenavon

December 08th 2021 News - LLL_poster_16_July_2013.jpg

The Living Landscape series of lectures will burst into life in July with a talk on “Archaeology in the Blaenavon World Heritage Site”. The event is the first of a monthly series of twelve lectures and activities supported by the Valleys Regional Park / WECAN Project and Rhymney Brewery (www.rhymneybreweryltd.com), with half the events taking place at the new Brewery and Visitor Centre, adjacent to Big Pit.

This month’s lecture, on Tuesday 16 July at the Blaenavon World Heritage Centre at 6pm, is hosted by Torfaen County Borough Council’s Community Heritage Development Officer.  Come along to find out more about the Scheduled Ancient Monuments within Blaenavon.  Entry is FREE but places are limited so booking is essential.  

Following on from this lecture on Friday 26 July, 1-3pm, visitors will have a chance to experience archaeology in action and participate in an archaeological dig, with the opportunity to excavate and record archaeology at Llanyrafon Manor, which also coincides with the CBE (Council for British Archaeology) Festival of Archaeology 2013 running from 13-28 July across the UK.  Places limited, booking essential.

The Living Landscape Lectures will take place on the third Tuesday of each month, followed by an associated activity at a later date.  For further information on lectures and activities over the next few months, visit www.visitblaenavon.co.uk.  To book a place on the July lecture contact the Blaenavon World Heritage Centre, telephone 01495 742333. 

As Steve Evans, Managing Director of Rhymney Brewery explained: “We are delighted to use our Visitors Centre to host six Living Landscapes Lectures to attract more visitors to the area as well as to highlight an alternative venue for private and business use.”
