Literary Megaliths: The Stones of Strumble Head

Literary Megaliths: The Stones of Strumble Head

Call them cromlechs, dolmens, quoits, menhirs, standing stones; think of them as the unsung masterpieces of Neolithic and Bronze Age construction – communal buildings, architecture for the dead, solstice-trackers, maps, theatrical spaces, works of art. These ceremonial stones have long been sung in the literatures of Wales and celebrated in the cultural performance of our identities, from the Mabinogi and the ‘Stanzas of the Graves’ to the vision of Iolo Morganwg and the work of John Ormond, Niall Griffiths and Gillian Clarke. They continue to exert an irresistible pull. Join Professor Damian Walford Davies and Dr Bronwen Price in a walk through one of Pembrokeshire’s finest prehistoric landscapes, and discover how our layered pasts have creatively inspired our present.

In partnership with Cadw and Pembrokeshire Coast National Park

Time: 11.00am – 5.00pm
Start / Finish point: Footpath to the east of the St Nicholas / Tremarchog road off the A487 (a map will be provided)
