As part of the Festival of British Archaeology the Winding House Museum is holding several events the week commencing Saturday 21st July.
Kicking off the event on Saturday July 21st at 2pm is a fascinating talk, "Life, Language and Leisure in the Upper Rhymney Valley before Iron and Coal." The talk by University Academic Dr. Colin Morgan will give an insight into the lives of residents' ancestors before industrialisation. Booking is essential for this much anticipated lecture.
And for those wanting to get hands on with history and archaeology family adventures are being run each day between Tuesday 24th July and Friday 27th July. Residents can explore mystery objects, find out how people lived in the past and experience the excitement of unearthing a relic of times gone past at the Trowels and Treasure event.
The historic winding engine will also be running on Friday 27th July at 12pm and 3pm. All activities are free, with booking essential for Saturday 21st July.
