I’ve already recently discussed the memorial dimensions surrounding the World Heritage Site that is the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, Denbighshire, including its many heritage boards. Therefore I refer readings to this post as well as to my discussion of death on the aqueduct. This week, I revisited with my MA Archaeology of Death and Memory students. We crossed the aqueduct, explored its numerous heritage signboards, and also had drinks and an ice cream. I want to make some additional observations.

First, is it me, or are there penguins walking over the aqueduct on this sculpture?

Second, the aqueduct gives you a great view of a sewage treatment plant.

Third, I just love the North  East Wales tourist slogan. I hadn’t noticed it before, but it kind of works:
