“Discover how to visit the past and bring yesterday’s stories into our lives today.” G. Hovell.
Feel prehistory come alive at Castell Henllys, in Pembrokeshire: the only Iron Age Village in Britain to be built inside the original Iron Age hillfort, which gives the site an authentic, and completely unique feel. Reconstructed on the exact location where roundhouses would have stood 2500 years earlier, you are invited to explore, and enjoy meeting the friendly Iron Age villagers, as they share their knowledge and understanding about prehistoric life and living with the land through talks and demonstrations of ancient skills and craft. Within significant fortifications, archaeologists have found evidence for numerous Iron Age roundhouses, dating between 500 and 100 BC, and there is an education centre nearby with plenty of objects excavated from the site to look at, as well as replica objects to handle.
There’s also an amazing variety of wildlife inside the woodlands, and if you need a break there’s a superb riverside cafe.
