Heritage sites engage with the emotions. What was it like for the original residents?
At the National Trust site of Dolaucothi you can join a guided tour, put on your hard hat and explore the workings of the Roman gold mine. And on some of the trips you can slide into some of the shallower workings to experience what it must have been like to extract the ore underground. Some of the workings may in fact go back into the pre-Roman period.
It is also possible to trace the line of the aqueduct bringing water to the ore processing areas.
