Dig deep into Pembrey's sand dunes to explore the area's military history, as part of our series celebrating coastal heritage.

Join Dynamic Dunescapes and archaeologist Alice Pyper from Dyfed Archaeological Trust to learn about the fascinating military history of one of South Wales' beautiful and popular sand dune systems; Pembrey. This talk will explore the use of Pembrey Burrows for the manufacture of munitions during the First and Second World Wars, and look at the role of the wider landscape in the defence of Britain in the Second World War.

Meet Alice:

I’ve been working in archaeology for around 30 years, I graduated from Sheffield university, and have an MA from the University of York. I worked on a variety of projects, on excavations, ‘digging’, and recording historic buildings before coming to work at the Dyfed Archaeological Trust in 2001, where I’ve been working ever since in the Heritage Management section, as a curator, providing information and advice to the public and various organisations. This, together with working on a number of community archaeology projects, has led to a varied and enjoyable career in archaeology.
