    Just outside Holt there was a Roman Tile and Pottery works which supplied roof tiles, floor tiles and pottery for the Roman fort at Chester towards the end of the 1st century A.D.

    It was rediscovered and excavated in early 20th century, and the finds sent to the National Museum at Cardiff. Most of them have been kept in the basement ever since. In 2018 Holt Local History Society commissioned a detailed geophysical survey of the site, and visited NMW Cardiff to view the artefacts.

    We are pleased that we were able to persuade NMW Cardiff and Wrexham Museum to display the items in N Wales for the first time since 1925. Furthermore a small team of HLHS members have been extensively involved in researching, labelling and display of the artefacts. A slideshow and display boards tell the story of the site and its discovery and excavation.

    This free exhibition at Wrexham Museum, which is on display until January 2022, where you can see the full story.

    Climate Change and How To Fix It 
    Talk in English by David Sprake via Zoom
    Friday, 21st January 2022, 7:00 PM
    This talk will touch on the science behind climate change and some of the solutions that could be practically used to fix it. It will explore humanity’s addiction to fossil fuel energy and how that has brought about changes in the atmosphere, and how that in turn is causing the climate to change on a global scale.

    The second half of the lecture will look at alternatives to fossil fuels and if they can practically work in today’s world, together with what can be done to mitigate what has already been emitted into atmosphere. The lecture will conclude with what has been holding up progress to change. Visit http://www.cwmulus.org
