Great Orme Ancient MinesGreat Orme Ancient Mines

Dating back 4,000 years to the Bronze Age they change our views about the ancient people of Britain and their civilized and structured society 2,000 years before the Roman invasion.Over the past 25 years mining engineers, cavers and archaeologists have been slowly uncovering more tunnelsand large areas of the surface landscape to reveal what is now thought to be the largest Prehistoric mine,so far discovered in the World. A visit to Great Orme Mines is both an enjoyable and educational experience which can be enjoyed by children and adults of all ages. Walking through tunnels mined out over 3,500 years ago gives visitors a feel for the harsh conditions our prehistoric ancestors faced in their search for copper.The highlight of the tour is the amazing Bronze Age Cavern, dug out over 3,500 years ago by miners using nothing more than stone and bone tools. One of the original excavation team is always on hand to answer your questions.
