Cadw has announced that a new artist in residence will be working on a rock art project at Bryn Celli Ddu on Anglesey, during June 2015.

Speaking about the appointment, Dr Ffion Reynolds, Cadw’s Heritage and Arts Manager, said:  'We are delighted to announce that Angela Davies will be the new artist in residence at Bryn Celli Ddu, working as part of the Community Archaeology project taking place throughout June.

'She will be working with the community and with the archaeologists in interpreting this amazing ancient site to the public.'

'Her work will consider religious and ceremonial happenings that might have occurred at Bryn Celli Ddu. By using the qualities of quartz and other materials used to build the chamber, Angela will be exploring the qualities of light and the alignment of the sun that illuminates the passageway during the solstice.'

The conceptual nature of Triboluminescence and quartz, and the potential performative experiences that this may have provided is key to her investigation.'

She will be on site during the Open Day on the 20 of June, for the Bryn Celli Ddu Archaeology Open Day
