Some more about the first week at the Bryn Celli Ddu Rock Art project

As part of the project here on Angelsey, we have been working with artists and laser scanning experts at the main passage tomb of Bryn Celli Ddu.

One of our aims is to create a digital record of the Bryn Celli Ddu passage tomb, and in the last week, we have been lucky enough to get this laser scan completed. More results to follow, but you can see from the below image some of the initial results. I think you’ll join me in thinking that it is a little bit amazing!

During the week we also welcomed a group of International Baccalaureate and A-level students from Coleg Menai, who joined us for the day – had a tour and spent the day excavating with us.

Part of the project is also to work with artist Angela Davies, who is our project artist in residence. We are really excited to see how she responds to the site, being inspired by quartz, light and shadow, and her work will form part of the Archaeology Open Day on the 20th of June. You should come and join us!
