Anglesey Rock-Art Project The Anglesey Rock-Art Project (ARAP) began with a field trip in June 2004 with part-time students from Bristol University and our discovery on the first day of cup-marks on a rock outcrop within 250m of the Bryn Celli Ddu passage-grave; One of several new and significant discoveries for the Rock-Art of Wales. We organise field work trips on a regular basis and have found more Rock-Art at other sites including Barclodiad y Gawes and Cromlech Farm.
The project is entirely self funded through Archaeology Safaris Ltd and the administrative costs are met by the volunteers taking part on the field trips. In exchange for time and effort on walking surveys and recording rock-art panels, the participants of each field work trip are given a tour of the main and less well known sites on Anglesey. Field notes are provided to keep and the archaeology of each site is discussed and explained in detail by Dr George Nash.
In January 2009 the directors of ARAP formed the Welsh Rock-Art Association with the aim of bringing all the information and researchers of Rock-Art in Wales together. We hope to be able to build an online database for all the information already out there and to create a forum for discussion and collaboration for future research. This, it is hoped, will raise the profile of rock-art in Wales and help with further work and the better preservation/protection of known sites. The website is available although still under development, but ultimately all the information will be available to the communities where these sites are found. We are inviting all researchers with an interest in this area to contribute in whatever way they can, as well as the wider community who may have information and opinions to offer.
Llwydiarth Esgob Stone - Project Field School and Excavation - 18th - 22nd June 2009
NGR: SH436844. Noted in an article by Francis Lynch in 1974 that the boulder was in the garden of Llwydiarth Esgob near Llannerch-y-medd. A double cup and ring mark with groove and further cupmarks on a boulder approximately 1m in length. A recent photographic survey (Nash & Stanford 2009) has indicated that there is in fact much more to the art than previously thought. As well as the possibility of below ground rock-art the survey may have revealed distinct similarities with art of the Boyne Valley, thus strongly adding further to the suggestion of an Irish influence for the rock-art found in Anglesey and north Wales. We are investigating the possibility of further art below the present ground level and wish to record the panel complete, the stone may also have been removed from a now destroyed, but unknown monument nearby, so this will also be investigated as well as conducting rock-art surveys and recording at other monuments on Anglesey including Barclodiad y Gawres where we have discovered art in recent photographic surveys. Field tours of the many fascinating monuments on Anglesey will take place in small groups during the four days of the project. Techniques covered are, excavation and recording, special methods of photographic and other non/minimal contact recording of megalithic rock-art.
During previous field trips local involvement has been limited and interest from local communities rather non-existent. This is something we would like to change and for the 2009 field school we are inviting pupils form two local schools to visit the excavation to learn more about Archaeology and the evidence of past cultures on their island. We are also hoping to arrange an open day event with cooperation of the landowner, for members of the wider community.

Project Title: Introduction


Please copy this template page, assign it a new project name, and then edit the copy.
If you are going to add a large amount of information to this site, it might be worth splitting the text between different pages, such as an introduction page, results, discussion etc. The easiest way to do this is to add a series of links just below your project title, as shown on this page. This is done by typing the following:
@@[[ProjectBackground background]] | [[ProjectMethodology methodology]] | [[ProjectResults results]] | [[ProjectDiscussion discussion]]@@.
The @ signs at the beginning and end centre the text. Each item enclosed in [[...]] is a link to another section, the first part being the new page name, and anything after the first space is text shown to link to that page (because these pages don't yet exist they are underlined; following the link gives you the option of creating the new page). Simply replace 'Project' with the name of your own project in each case, e.g. [[CopmanthorpeBackground background]].
