Last year we were asked by Oriel Ynys Mon to reconstruct a number of objects from the Llyn Cerrig Bach Hoard. This is one of the most spectacular Iron Age hoard ever found. Its was discovered during the building of RAF Valley (where Prince William is now based) in the Second World War on Anglesey. The objects had been ritually deposited in a lake as offerings and contained object from all over what is now the UK.
