CASTELL Henllys Iron Age Village will host a fascinating talk revealing the links between Stonehenge and Preseli Bluestones later this month.

Renowned archaeologist Professor Mike Parker Pearson will present findings from this year’s dig at Craig Rhosyfelin along with details from previous excavations on the site, which is believed to be a quarry for some of the smaller stones located at Stonehenge.

Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority Culture and Heritage Manager Phil Bennett said: “Stonehenge continues to reveal its secrets and intriguing links between Stonehenge and this spectacular part of the National Park continue to be discovered.

“The hunt for the origins of the bluestones continues apace and Mike Parker Pearson and his team will be conducting a dig for around a month beginning at the start of September. This will be the fifth season of excavations at Craig Rhosyfelin and the team will also be studying other sites in the Preseli Hills.”
