Step into Stone Age Footprints at Pembrokeshire Archaeology Day School

Stone Age human footprints, submerged landscapes and medieval iron production are some of the topics heading up this year’s Archaeology Day School being hosted by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority. The annual event is being held at Pembrokeshire College on Saturday November 20th, and those attending will be sure to enjoy the five talks and question times organised over the course of what should be a very informative day.

Saturday, 20th November at Pembrokeshire College;  more details here.

Submerged forests around the  south Welsh coast reveal a past when sea levels were slightly lower than today, these forests date back 7,000 years when hunting was an important aspect of stone age economy.  At Lydstep, on the beach at low tide, footprints of animals, children and adults were discovered  this spring by a local resident Sarah Carlsen.  The footsteps are thought to have been made somewhere around 5,300bce and had been made in a shallow lagoon in peat which hardened over time.
