Lunchtime talks - Death in Wales

If you haven't had the chance yet to visit the exhibition Death in Wales: 4000-3000BC currently showing at National Museum Cardiff, then fear not.

Not only does the exhibition run until 24 September, we also have a fantastic series of lunchtime talks and field trips – guaranteed to give you a head start and a proper insight to what the exhibition is about.

Lunchtime talks

All talks begin at 1.05 pm and are free of charge, so why not call into the Museum during your lunch hour and listen to some fascinating stories. You're sure to learn something new as well.
