Celebrating the Solstice at Bryn Celli Ddu

On the 21st of June, we joined Cadw at Bryn Celli Ddu for a celebration of all things Neolithic! Visitors got the chance to see flint-knapping demonstrations, learn about aerial photography, make embossed badges and much more.

Lee shot this video from above the site during the day, which is a great watch!

We also had special permission to visit a natural outcrop in a neighbouring field (which is private land, so please don’t visit without permission!) on which up to 28 cup marks were discovered in 2005 (you can see some in the left image). Towards the end of the day, the sun treated us to a fanstastic view of the rock art on the stone just outside the burial chamber.
