School visit

Friends of Nevern Castle conducted a tour of the Castle for a group of 9-10 year olds from St Dogmaels Primary School on 14th November 2022.

While walking around the site, we looked at mock-up pictures, talked about the characters of the time, and had great fun role-playing the coming and goings between Norman and Welsh control. And of course we talked about archaeology.

The teachers said afterwards:

  • fantastic afternoon … impressed with the presentation … handouts were superb
  • Thank you so much for a wonderful afternoon…the children enjoyed very much and learnt a lot…. They haven’t stopped talking about acting out the battles!!
