Gwyl Archaeolegol Garn Goch

Hoffwn eich gwahodd chi i fod yn rhan o wyl cenedlaethol ‘British Archaeology’ sydd yn cael ei gynnal ar fryngaer Garn Goch, sef bryngaer mwyaf Cymru ac hefyd yn edrych dros Ddyffryn Tywi ar benwythnos yr 31ain o Orffennaf a’r 1af o Awst. Fe fydd Ymddiriedolaeth Archaeolegol Dyfed ynghyd ag awdurdod Parc Cenedlaethol Bannau Brycheiniog yn trefnu a chynnal ystod eang o weithgareddau dros y penwythnos, gyda chymorth tir feddianwyr Garn Goch a thrigolion pentref Bethlehem.

Bydd y daith yn cychwyn yn Neuadd Pentref Bethlehem ac yn eich arwain ar hyd llwybr amser o amgylch y bryngaer. Ar hyd y daith, fe gewch gyfle i glywed hanesion yr ardal ac i ddysgu am dirwedd Dyffryn Tywi. O fewn gwrthglawdd gerrig allanol y fryngaer, bydd arddangoswyr yn dangos sut mae sgiliau crefft wedi newid dros amser. Bydd hefyd cyfle i blant ac oedolion chwilota’r ardal drwy gymryd rhan mewn ‘helfa hanesyddol’.

Garn Goch Archaeology Festival

At Garn Goch hillfort, overlooking the Tywi Valley, visitors will be invited to walk back in time as part of the national festival of British Archaeology. On the weekend of 31st July and 1st August Dyfed Archaeological Trust and Brecon Beacons National Park Authority, with the support of Garn Goch graziers and the community of Bethlehem, will be laying on a host of archaeological and historically themed activities at the largest hillfort in Wales.

Starting at Bethlehem Village Hall visitors will be guided along a time trail up and around the hillfort learning about the landscape and hearing tales of the past along the way.  Within the stone ramparts of Garn Goch, people will be demonstrating crafts through time.  Children and adults can investigate the site for themselves through a history hunt.

  1. I would like to come to this event for some of the time; it is impossible to find more info about this event on the websites, eg what time and day is the guided walk, the hog roast, is it suitable for all ages, fitness, etc
    a guide and timing and more info of all events over the 2 days would be very helpful and probably bring more people into carmarthenshire, having to phone about events almost makes the website a waste of time and money

    • Dear Shirley
      You are quite right, there does need to be more information available on the website. I have contacted the festival organisers and can tell you the following:
      The guided walks to the Garn begin in Bethlehem village hall at 11am and 1pm and take about an hour.
      Garn Goch the Archaeological and Geological Story begins at 11 am and 2.30pm in the Garn Goch car park and lasts about 2 hours.
      Storytelling will be taking place from 12.30 – 1.30pm and 2.30 – 3.30pm on the Garn
      The Garn Goch guided ramble begins at 11am in the Garn Goch car park and lasts about 3 hours.
      All other activities take place on the Garn and will be going on all day.
      All events and activities are repeated on Sunday, at the same times.
      The ground is obviously uneven and rocky so not all activities are suitable for all abilities and ages. Stout footwear is advisable and dogs must be kept on leads.
      I hope that this answers your query, and that you enjoy the day.
