Bronze Age heritage for Denbighshire pupils' film





Schoolchildren in Denbighshire have been at the premiere of a film they have helped produce as part of Britain's Cultural Olympics.

For the last year pupils at five schools have studied the Bronze Age landscape and artefacts of north Wales.

It includes the Golden Cape which was discovered in Mold in 1833.

The resulting short film was shown at the Scala cinema in Prestatyn, helping to explain the life and landscape in north east Wales 4,000 years ago.

The centrepiece of the film is the Golden Cape, which is now housed in the British Museum and the children have used it as a key part of their story.

The ceremonial artefact is thought to date to the early Bronze Age, at around 1950-1550 BC.
