Strata Florida Open Weekend

Britain From the Above Project activity officer, Natasha Scullion showing some of the old aerial photographs at last week's Open Weekend
Despite the horrible weather the Royal Commission headed to the Strata Florida Open Weekend on 9-10 June organised by University of Wales, Trinity St David. The weekend was filled with a range of events from demonstrations of copper smelting and wood turning to lectures, storytelling, tours and the on-going archaeological excavation of the site.

Although there weren’t as many visitors as hoped , those who talked to us were very enthusiastic, particularly about the old aerial photographs of Aberystwyth, Cardiff, Caerphilly and Holyhead, which are part of the Britain from Above project due to be launched online at the end of this month. People had some fantastic stories to share and it was a pleasure to be part of such an interesting, if damp, weekend!
