POTTY OVER HISTORY! Exhibition Gives Pupils and Adults Chance to Discover More about Iron Age Hill Fort


Byline: Kathryn Williams

A SCHOOL and community initiative that has fired up interest in Cardiff's history and archaeology has showcased its work at St Fagan's National History Museum.

The community exhibition Share Your Story was produced by children and community members from Caerau/Ely who have been working with Cardiff University's School of History, Archaeology and Religion on the Caerau and Ely Rediscovering Heritage Project (CAER).

She said: "I've always watched Time Team and I did want to be an archaeologist and I knew there was a Roman trench in Caerau, I used to play there all the time when I was younger.

"We helped with a lot of the projects and it was fun. Our D&T teacher had a free day and said that we should make a hill fort and the shields."

Kaiya Bartram-Daly, also from Glyn Derw, said: "It was really fun, I got to go into the storage room at the National Museum of Wales and we made coil pots."

And it's not just the teenagers of Cardiff who are interested in the history of the area; Sheila Spinks, from Adamsdown, is part of the adult learners group and has discovered places in the city she never knew existed. …
