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 three years we have built up a picture that includes a Late Neolithic / Bronze Age cairn, a Neolithic pic circle, along with several rock art panels situated close by, making a case for a complex multi-period landscape.

During the 2018 season we will return to work in the vicinity. There will be opportunities to excavate and record archaeology in the surrounding landscape.

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.

Other Activities

Join archaeologists from Cadw, UCLan and MMU for the fourth year of the Bryn Celli Ddu landscape project, on Anglesey, northwest Wales.

Over the course of the excavation, a series of events have been arranged to celebrate the famous Neolithic passage tomb. New site-specific works by artists John Abell and Beth Greenhalgh will be on show; and a new exhibition and heritage trail will launch at Oriel Môn for families, with illustrations by John Swogger.

The project’s annual stargazing event will take place on the 15 of June, and the free Archaeology Open Day will take place on the 16 of June, where the site will come alive with site tours and a full day of hands-on activities.
