Tue31Aug2021Mon31Jan2022Wrexham County Borough Museum, County Building, Regent Street, WrexhamJust 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.

Cardiff Productions, working with North East Wales Heritage Forum / Fforwm Treftadaeth Gogledd Ddwyrain Cymru on a project for S4C, are on the hunt for brilliant people or places that form a part of Wales' disability history. They would be really grateful to hear from anyone who has a tale to tell on characters or stories that could feature in a documentary about Disability History in Wales.
