Rural history under the spotlight (UK)
An archaeology dig and medieval re-enactments are being put on in Brymbo to encourage people to think about their local heritage. Ideas for history projects for the next three years are being sought.
Neil Oliver, the Scottish historian and archaeologist who also presents the BBC TV series Coast, is launching the event. Karen Harris from organiser Northern Marches Cymru said:"We want people's ideas about how to raise the profile of Wrexham's rural heritage."
Ms Harris described it as a"unique opportunity to become involved in this new community heritage project."These local histories can then be preserved and enjoyed by future generations, as well as providing potential tourism opportunities."
