An audience of 17 Berriew WI members heard Jeff Spencer talk on the work of the Clwyd-Powys Archaeological Trust at Berriew Community Centre on 4th February. The highlight (judging from feedback received over tea and biscuits afterwards!) was the inclusion of aerial photographs of local sites Cefn-yr-Allt hillfort, Luggy motte, Vaynor Park, Glansevern Hall and the Montgomeryshire Canal aqueduct, between them covering the period from the Iron Age to the 19th century. An impressive archaeology-themed quiz had been devised for a bit of fun by the WI committee and is included here for you to pit your wits against (answers below, no peeking before trying to answer them now!); one member managed 10 out of 10, how will you get on?
1=b, 2=c, 3=b, 4=a and b (half a point each), 5=d, 6=b, 7=d (early), 8=c, 9=b, 10=c (only joking, itís b!)
