Castell Henllys Iron Age Village, the only Iron Age site in Britain to be reconstructed on its original foundations, has appointed a former community archaeologist as its new manager.
Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority has appointed its former Community Archaeologist, Delun Gibby, to manage the iconic Castell Henllys, where Delun was recently involved in the reconstruction of one of its roundhouses.
Delun Gibby is Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority’s new Castell Henllys Iron Age Village Manager.
The National Park Authority’s Director of Countryside, Community and Visitor Services, James Parkin said: “We are delighted to have Delun on board with her wealth of knowledge and experience of this unique site.”
Delun said: “I am very much looking forward to working with the very experienced team at Castell Henllys to continue to develop the experience of daily life in the Iron Age, as well as other adventures, for visitors at this fantastic site.
“As well as the village with all its re-enactment activities, there is a visitor centre, shop, Ysgubor café, and outdoor experiences such as the Barefoot Trail and picnic site, all set in a beautiful ancient woodland."
Delun, who is from Maenclochog, studied Ancient History and Archaeology at Nottingham University and has just completed a PhD on the Prehistoric Heritage in Wales at Bangor University.
