Meaning ‘Castle of the Old Court’ – Castell Henllys is an ancient hill fort and archaeological site in the county of Pembrokeshire. It features a reconstructed iron age settlement that was established as part of a living experiment in late Neolithic and iron age farming techniques. Using the original foundations, four roundhouses and a granary have been faithfully rebuilt using both materials and methods appropriate to the historic age. Castell Henllys offers an intriguing insight into Iron Age life when the site was occupied around 400BC. A BBC television programme, ‘Surviving the Iron Age’ was film on location at Castell Henllys. It is used as a training centre for aspiring archaeologists during the summer and is on the property of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.
