About | Am y blog

This blog brings together information about Cadw’s Neolithic projects in Wales.

Currently, the blog is focused on our Bryn Celli Ddu Public Archaeology Project, which will take place in June 2018. 

The blog started in 2011 at Tinkinswood Burial Chamber in the Vale of Glamorgan in south Wales, with a community archaeology project which explored the surrounding landscape features. Since then, a community excavation took place at St Lythans Burial Chamber close by, and a school outreach project called Make & Break traveled across Wales. In 2013 & 2014, projects moved to Anglesey focusing on Bryn Celli Ddu and Barclodiad-y-Gawres passage tombs.

I have been debating whether to change the blog name and URL, but I still want it to be visible to participants who have been involved in past projects, so thought I’d stick to the one we have.

On a personal note, Tinkinswood is where it all began, and is still a very special place to me. Even though we’ll be keeping the name the same – we’ll be moving out to explore further sites across Wales.


Mae’r blog yma yn cydlynnu gwybodaeth am prosiectiau Neolithig Cadw yng Nghymru.

Ar hyn o bryn, mae’r blog yn trafod ein prosiect ym Mryn Celli Ddu, sydd yn cymryd lle yn Mehefin 2018.

Fe ddechreuais y blog yma nol yn 2011 pan wnaethom ni gloddio at safle Tinkinswood yn Mro Morgannwg yn de Cymru, gyda prosiect archaeoleg cymunedol wnaeth archwilio y tirwedd lleol. Ar ol hynny, fe wnaeth prosiect archaeoleg cymunedol arall cymryd lle yn Llwyneliddon lawr y lon, gyda prosiect allestyn cymunedol i blant ysgol o’r enw Creu a Chracio, wnaeth teithio o amglych Cymru. Yn ystod 2013 & 2014, fe wnaeth y sylw deithio i Ynys Mon, gyda prosiectiau yn cymryd lle yn Mryn Celli Ddu a Barclodiad-y-Gawres.

Dwi wedi bod yn meddwl newid enw y blog hwn, ond dwi dal isio fo fod yn gweledol i bobol oedd yn rhan o’r prosiectiau, felly wnaethom ni dewis cadw’r enw.

Ar nodyn personol, fe wnaeth y prosiectiau i gyd ddechrau yn Tinkinswood, ac mae’n le arbennig iawn i mi. Er bydd yr enw yn aros yr un peth – byddwn yn symud allan i ddarganfod mwy am hanes safleoedd Neolithig eraill ar draw hyd a lled Cymru.
