Friends of Gwynedd Archaeological Trust

About the Friends

The Trust has long recognised that education and communication are amongst the most important tools of conservation. A very important development over the last ten years has, therefore, been the success of the 'Friends' association. The Trust sees the 'Friends' as a means of getting information on recent project work and the archaeology of north-west Wales in general across to a wider audience, and for promoting the work of the Trust. It is also the framework within which members of the public can become more involved in the work of the Trust.

Members receive newsletters providing updates on Trust projects, and a copy of the periodic review of projects. Activities include lectures and day-schools, guided tours of excavations and study tours to sites and monuments within Wales and beyond.

Lecture series

Talks and lectures are held every week during the winter months on a particular theme.

Cyfeillion Ymddiriedolaeth Archaeolegol Gwynedd

Am y Cyfeillion

Mae'r Ymddiriedolaeth wedi cydnabod ers peth amser mai dau o arfau pwysicaf cadwraeth yw addysg a chyfathrebu. Un datblygiad pwysig iawn yn ystod y deng mlynedd diwethaf felly yw llwyddiant y 'cyfeillion'. Mae'r Ymddiriedolaeth yn gweld y 'cyfeillion' fel cyfrwng i drosglwyddo gwybodaeth am waith prosiect diweddar ac archaeoleg gogledd-orllewin Cymru'n gyffredinol i gynulleidfa ehangach, ac i hyrwyddo gwaith yr Ymddiriedolaeth. Mae hefyd yn fframwaith sy'n galluogi aelodau o'r cyhoedd i chwarae mwy o ran yng ngwaith yr Ymddiriedolaeth.

Mae'r aelodau'n derbyn cylchlythyr sy'n cynnwys y wybodaeth ddiweddaraf am brosiectau'r Ymddiriedolaeth, a chopi o'r adolygiad cyfnodol o brosiectau. Mae'r gweithgareddau'n cynnwys darlithoedd ac ysgolion undydd, teithiau tywys o amgylch cloddiadau ac ymweliadau â safleoedd a henebion yng Nghymru a thu hwnt.

Darlithoedd

Cynhaliwyd darlithoedd bob wythnos yn ystod y misoedd y gaeaf (tua un ar bymtheg i ugain bob blwyddyn) ar themau penodol.
