Uncover the fascinating story of Neolithic chambered tomb at Barclodiad y Gawres as part of our series celebrating coastal heritage.

Join Dynamic Dunescapes and Adele Thackray from Cadw for a light overview of the Neolithic chambered tomb of Barclodiad y Gawres (The apronful of the Giantess) in North Wales. This talk will explore the folklore around this important archaeological site, and discuss the excavation, and the links across the Irish sea with the artwork.

Meet Adele:

Adele is currently the Lifelong Learning Manager for North Wales, working for Cadw, who are the Welsh Government Historic Environment Service.

Adele has been with Cadw for over twelve years, first as an archaeologist working on monument management and protection in the landscape and then in education: with a passion for making heritage accessible to the communities of Wales.

She studied both History with Archaeology and Celtic Archaeology at the University of Wales Bangor.
