Fish And Chips And A Hot Bath

The Church Stone

The Church Stone

A full day today hunting the wild megalith across West Wales. For the first time it’s been hot and dry. Two weeks ago we struggled against hail and gales, today I roasted! We headed out towards Aberystwyth on the Trail of the Boar, Y Twrch Trwyth, a route suggested by The Mabinogion. It’s been a long day and we’ve only just got back, had fish and chips and a hot bath and now I’ve blogged, I’m off to bed 😀


I’m travelling around South West Wales with archaeologist Dewi Bowen who is researching his new book on Neolithic / Bronze Age monuments. His previous book on the stones of Ancient Siluria (South East Wales) can be found here. Accompanying us is film maker Melvyn Williams who is recording a documentary about our experiences. Some of Melvyn’s short films can be seen here. I’m currently working on a series of expressive drawings of ancestral sites and if you want to see some of my other artworks, please click here.

    ‘Hunting the wild megalith across West Wales’ what a fabulous thing to do, I’m pretty envious as I sit on the train here going into the office. These drawings are knockout!

      Thank you, Phil. This is quite a departure for me but it is improving my fitness levels 😁
