    Local community archaeologists are finding new and intriguing signs of pre-historic human activity in the Clwydian Range. The exhibition shows some of the archaeological processes which reveal these fleeting traces of our distant ancestors.
    As successors to the Heather and Hillforts project, the Clwydian Range Archaeology Group (CRAG) have been surveying and excavating in the Moel Arthur area for a number of seasons. In that time, tantalising glimpses have emerged of human activity, some of it probably medieval, and some appearing to go back thousands of years, possibly as far back as Mesolithic times. As well as showing what has been found in successive years of excavation, the exhibition explains some of the methods archaeologists use to investigate, gather evidence and record the results.
    At weekends, while the exhibition is open, a member of the CRAG team will be on hand between 11am and 3pm to answer questions about the excavations and the archaeological processes involved. Between these times the finds from recent digs will be displayed.
    CRAG have recently won the Marsh Award for Community Archaeology. This national award is sponsored by the Council for British Archaeology (CBA) and the Marsh Christian Trust. If you would like further information about CRAG, contact info@cragnorthwales.co.uk
    The exhibition is sponsored by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Sustainable Development Fund for the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

    Starting as an anti-establishment secret society, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood soon set the Victorian art world on fire. From the early jewel-like pictures of the ‘truth-to-nature’ style, developed a dreamy, Medieval art, which had a profound effect not only on the English, but also the continental and American Avante-Garde. In this lavishly-illustrated course, Adrian Sumner looks more closely at John Millais, William Holman-Hunt, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and his inspired pupil Edward Burne-Jones, and the waves of influence they exerted on William Morris the Arts and Crafts Movement, the Aesthetic Movement, Symbolism, Decadence and the period style of Art Nouveau. A graduate of Liverpool College of Art, Adrian has worked as an Illustrator, Arts Development Officer and Lecturer in various academic and public institutions including NADFAS. Latterly he was Arts Development Officer for Cheshire West and Chester Council, with a particular interest in Visual Arts. Currently he divides his time between organising study weekends in Britain, cruise ship lectures, painting and exhibiting, and delivering study days and single lectures in Britain and abroad.

    Based on his book of the same title which joins up current scientific views of reality with Christian theology, this course with Don MacGregor looks at some of the big questions around how we think about God and Jesus. Consider quantum consciousness, the power of the intentional mind, morphic resonance and other new scientific theories. Don MacGregor is an Anglican Priest living in Fishguard, West Wales. He has an MA in Theology and has been a university chaplain, a science teacher and a youth worker. Don’s Christian journey has moved from evangelical and charismatic to mystical and esoteric with aspects of contemporary holistic spirituality, and an emphasis on meditation and contemplative prayer. He is an active member of CANA (Christians Awakening to a New Awareness) and PCN (Progressive Christian Network). Residential prices start from £125, non-residential from £90. Discount rates for clergy and students apply. For more information or to book, please call 01244 532350 or email http://enquiries@gladlib.org.

    Faith and doubt, folly and failure go together in the stories of Jesus’s disciples, both in any meaningful creative endeavor and in any real life. Using these perspectives, Deborah Lewer explores great and lesser works of visual art from the Middle Ages to the present day, seeing in art’s traitors, doubters, fools and bunglers where wisdom comes of folly, beauty of imperfection and of failure, grace.

    Anyone with an interest in art and/or faith is very welcome.

    The weekend is led by Deborah Lewer, Senior Lecturer in History of Art at the University of Glasgow.

    Wrexham County Borough Museum and Archives, Regent Street, Wrexham LLII 1RB

    A new exhibition which opens at Wrexham Museum on 21 April is based on the challenge of telling the story of North East Wales in 100 objects.

    This exhibition is the culmination of a two year Heritage Lottery Fund project by the North East Wales Heritage Forum, which was set up to celebrate, conserve and promote the rich heritage of the North East Wales borderlands. The Forum brought together community heritage groups across the region and asked them to suggest objects that each represent an aspect of our local history. With the suggestions flooding in, the search was on to track down the recommended items and secure their appearances in this unique exhibition.

    The final 100 represent thousands of years of history from the first evidence of human life up to the technology of the 21st century. The exhibition divides into six sections

    • Early Inhabitants

    • Castles and Conflict

    • Industrial Innovation

    • Travel and Transport

    • Religion and Culture

    • Everyday Life

    The display is an eclectic mix of objects ranging from a prehistoric horse jaw from Gop Cave, arrow heads from Denbigh Castle, a River Dee coracle, the smoking hat of poet John ‘Ceiriog’ Hughes, a copper manilla from Greenfield Valley to the modern day Airbus wing rib.

    Students from the Creative Industries Department at Glyndŵr University have been involved in creating audio pieces related to some of the objects.

    Head of HLF Wales, Richard Bellamy, explains why the project was considered important enough to be awarded a Grant: “North East Wales is an area rich in both heritage and culture. This ambitious project is not simply about preserving collections– it’s also about making them meaningful and accessible for people today. With the support from National lottery players, this exciting new exhibition will give people opportunities to learn about, enjoy and become immersed in their unique heritage of which they can be immensely proud.”

    Dr Shaun Evans, Chairman of the Forum said, “The hundred objects have been selected and grouped to illustrate themes which wind their way through the area’s history. The result is an outstandingly diverse representation of our region’s past, stretching over centuries and including items from every part of our corner of North East Wales. We would invite people living in the area to visit this exhibition and to treat this exhibition as a gateway to further explore and discover our towns and villages, our landscapes, heritage sites and other museums and archives.”

    He added, “Many thanks go to all of the groups, organisations and individuals who have allowed us to include items from their collections within the exhibition – without their support this project would not have been possible. We are exceptionally grateful to the Heritage Lottery Fund for funding the two-year project. We are also delighted to be holding the exhibition at Wrexham Museum, whose team have been wonderful to work with.”

    Cllr Hugh Jones, Lead Member for Communities, Partnerships, Public Protection and Community Safety, said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank the North East Wales Heritage Forum, who represents the many museums, archives, community heritage groups, societies and individuals across the region, for bringing this two year project to an end in Wrexham Museum. It is a real honour for us and I know many people will take full advantage of the wonderful facilities here and pay the exhibition a visit. Well done to all involved.”

    The exhibition, which is free of charge, is on display at Wrexham Museum from 21 April until 30 June 2018.

    The exhibition is accompanied by a book The History of North East Wales in 100 Objects that will be available from Wrexham Museum and other local outlets, including The Bookshop in Mold and Ruthin bookshops.

    10 am - 4 pmCraig y Don Community Centre, Queens Road, Craig y Don Llandudno LL301TE

    Admission is £2.

    There is easy access to the Centre. There is free on-site all day parking, and the no 5 bus [NOT 5X], stops nearby. Light refreshments are available during the day. The fair is now the only dedicated postcard fair in the whole of North Wales, and collectors come from right across the region and beyond to support this event, and possibly find some 'gems' for their collections. Postcards came to the UK in 1894 from the Continent, so there's a wealth of images showing our towns and villages as they have developed over the past 124 years. See your area as your grandparents or great-grandparents would have seen it, and add some depth to your family trees, by finding pictures of places important to your ancestors. Even the more recent postcards show changes:- shops such as Woolworths and Macfisheries, which have now disappeared from our high streets, for example. Postcards also show images of thousands of other subjects - animals, military, cinema, plants and flowers, textiles, transport, archaeology, birds, theatre and many, many more, and of course, there is also the interest in the photography itself. Postcards were one of the outlets for local photographers. Some of the North Wales postcard photographers produced top-quality work, and names include Hutton of Colwyn Bay, Rae Pickard of Rhyl and F.H. May of Pwllheli. Another aspect is the message on the card....it was not always 'wish you were here' - some are amusing, others mention local or national events, or give an insight into the social life of the times, but all are unique. There is so much to enjoy in these small pieces of card, so do come along and see for yourself. We have a range of dealers booked already, offering postcards for beginners and established collectors, so whatever your interests, there will probably be something of interest to see. Prices start at c50p per card.

    The North Wales Postcard Club organizes this fair, but also, our regular meetings are held on the second Monday of each month, at the Craig-y-Don Community Centre at 7.30pm. Visitors or new members are always welcome. Check our website,  for more information, or call me, the Secretary, Karlyn, on 01492-440763.
