The turnout of 147 enthusiasts (plus 3 dogs) demonstrated the commitment of local people to their heritage. Toby Driver recreated the landscape of 2000 years ago when Pen Dinas was the largest hillfort in north Ceredigion. Young and old archaeologists explored the hillfort from the southern gate to the isthmus and admired the formidable north and south enclosures. The group rested at the Wellington Monument before descending Pen Dinas and enjoying tea and biscuits at the Communities First Centre in Penparcau.

The event was part of the Festival of British Archaeology fortnight and organised by The Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales in association with Communities First Penparcau. Earlier in the week Toby Driver and Nicola Roberts of the Royal Commission had talked about Pen Dinas with 95 enthusiastic children at Llwynyreos School.
