New Date for History Hunters Training

A message from Ancient Connections…

Go raibh maith agat, Diolch, Thank you… for your continued interest in History Hunters, part of the Ancient Connections project. We hope our History Hunters Festival in May inspired you to get out exploring and researching the fantastic stories and history that surround us all.

 If you have been researching and finding out interesting and intriguing stories about your local area, why not book a place at our Omeka training event which has now been rescheduled to take place on the 13 July from 2pm to 3.30pm. Omeka is where all the gathered historic information, stories and folklore relating to our project areas will be kept.

Our training session on the 13 July will show you how to upload information and stories and will recap some of the great information that was uncovered during the festival. To book your place, please click here:

If you haven’t had a chance to sign up for the new Ancient Connections website,, have a look and register as a History Hunter. The website has lots of resources, training videos from the festival and a forum which is an online space you can use to keep in touch, ask questions, post things of interest, share details about your research project and ask for information/input/support.

Log in and take a look, and say hello to fellow History Hunters in Pembrokeshire and Ireland whom you may have got to know a bit during the festival. All you need to do is create a log-in by adding a username and password. Click here to do so.

Thank you so much for your interest and contributions to History Hunters.

Le gach dea-ghuí. Cofion gorau.

Best wishes from Róisín & Angharad at Ancient Connections.

Kitty knows that she will always be an incomer, but this is to be her sixth summers. The wet and grey days of winters have not diminished her love of Pembrokeshire, but she is always grateful for the golden light of spring and summer. Her love of the sea sustains her even through the darkest of days and she can often be found at high tide bobbing about in Fishguard harbour at high tide, often with seals in attendance. When not freezing in water she is usually at her computer. She says" has been an opportunity to celebrate this beautiful county and its people. Keep the stories coming. We love to hear from you."
