Today I went to Knighton to participate on the first day of the Living History Festival at the Offa’s Dyke Centre. Here’s the Twitter Moment.
In doing so, I joined Julian Ravest, Niall Heaton, and Liam Delaney in giving talks in the Centre. I presented a talk ‘Introducing Offa’s Dyke’ and a talk on ‘What’s What with Wat’s Dyke’.
The first talk was co-presented with Liam Delaney who gave fabulous new insights into his lidar discoveries of sections of Offa’s Dyke.
That morning, I had led a coach party of German academics from the Open University on a tour of the section of Offa’s Dyke on Hawthorn Hill.
Furthermore, in between these activities, I explored the festival field where there was an early medieval encampment of Cwmwd Ial re-enactors as well as a range of activities by CPAT staff, including storytelling.
A good day all round, which wouldn’t have been complete without my obligatory Offa selfie!
