This is an afternoon of lectures organised in conjunction with the Prehistoric Society to showcase
the very important new evidence for Neolithic houses and pottery found in Anglesey over the last
decade. The work at Parc Cybi is part of a huge multi-period excavation just outside Holyhead, now
nearing publication. The Llanfaethlu site is a surprising discovery of no less than four rectangular
houses on the site of a new school on the north coast of the island. Both sites have produced a lot
of Early Neolithic pottery and also a great deal of Middle and Late Neolithic pottery from pits.
