Bryn Celli Ddu is a Neolithic passage tomb on Anglesey, in northwest Wales, and this project focuses on the landscape surrounding this famous tomb.
During the last two years we have built up a picture that includes a Late Neolithic / Bronze Age cairn, along with several rock art panels situated close by, making a case for a complex multi-period landscape.
We recorded the cairn in plan, recovered samples for radiocarbon dating, and re-excavated previous interventions in order to determine the construction sequence.
During the 2017 season we will return to work in the vicinity, looking for further evidence of the Late Neolithic / Bronze Age burial cairn. There will also be opportunities to explore the surrounding landscape, recording the eight new rock art panels found during the last two years.
Our team consists of archaeologists from Welsh Government’s historic environment service, Cadw, University of Central Lancashire and Manchester Metropolitan University and local volunteers. Whether you are an experienced digger or want to try your hand at archaeology for the first time, you would be very welcome to join the team.
