Play • 30 min

Another opportunity to hear the talk given by Dr Simon Hancock FSA, curator of Haverfordwest Town Museum, as part of the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Archaeology Day event in November 2020.

Views about migration and refugees are important components of political discourse in twenty-first century Britain. While it might appear a phenomenon of pre-and post Brexit Britain the historical record suggests otherwise. The communities of Pembrokeshire have been subject to repeated waves of migration from the early modern period whether as a result of conquest, economic opportunities or escape from political turmoil and warfare.
