Welcome to our place; the Tanat Valley, Powys
(That's in Wales, on the very north-western edge of Europe)
Explore the incredible story of our prehistoric ancestors, see how we found out about them and find out about the ways in which their lives still surround us today. Around the site you will find little glowing orbs: click on them – and see where they take you!
