17th June 2017: Summer Solstice at Bryn Celli Ddu

A group of reenactors, archaeologists, druids and astronomers gathered at the annual Summer Solstice event at the neolithic Bryn Celli Ddu burial chamber (Mound in the Dark Grove) on Anglesey.

With clear blue skies and temperatures into the mid 20's in North Wales, 753 visitors came on the day (organised by CADW) to be entertained and educated. They also saw a live dig, close to the chamber, which was led by staff from the Welsh Government’s historic environment service, Cadw, University of Central Lancashire and Manchester Metropolitan University.

Meeting up with old friends Graham Taylor (centre below) and Gareth Riseborough (right below) gave rise to a wonderful "Three Wise (Neolithic) Men" photo opportunity.
