Archaeology and Wildlife of the Pembrokeshire Coast
Exploring the wild, wild west.
Pembrokeshire’s long history is as colourful and dramatic as its landscape. It possesses a rich legacy of prehistoric and later remains intrinsically linked to its coastline. Its northern peninsula is untainted by the industry of our modern age and the ancient iron age field enclosures still remain. A landscape untouched by intensive farming provides an ideal home to many native species that have disappeared from other parts of the UK and, warmed by the Gulf Stream, its waters attract visiting strangers – turtles, blue shark and the occasional whale. From Neolithic cromlech to 11th century cathedrals, and bracken strewn hills to a sea faring trip to its outlying islands, we explore one of the country’s most captivating landscapes.
