Museum hosts talk on Eliseg's Pillar

* The Eliseg's Pillar display in Llangollen Museum's central gallery.

ARCHAEOLOGIST Suzanne Evans will be giving a talk on the Pillar of Eliseg display, currently running at Llangollen Museum, on Sunday, November 16.

The pillar, also known as Elise's Pillar or Croes Elisedd in Welsh, stands near Valle Crucis Abbey just outside Llangollen and was erected by Cyngen ap Cadell, ancient king of Powys, in honour of his great-grandfather Elisedd ap Gwylog.

Suzanne Evans, who is an archaeology lecturer at Coleg Llandrillo Cymru and also chairman of Llangollen Museum, will be talking to members of Corwen and Dee Valley Archaeological Society (CADVAS) about the excavations which led to the museum display, entitled Treasures of Valle Crucis Abbey, and those of the Bronze Age burial cairn on which Eliseg’s Pillar stands.

In the talk, which starts at 12.30pm, she will also speak about the future development of the project.

“Please come along and support the Museum and CADVAS who will be working hard in the future to support the museum.

“We encourage and welcome local groups, societies and schools. Please contact us to arrange a talk, tour or speaker.”
