Archeologists reveal what they've unearthed

* Eliseg’s Pillar near Llangollen where a dig took place last year. 

Are you interested in archaeology?

Did you know that there has been quite a lot going on in north east Wales during the last year?

There have been excavations on three Iron Age hillforts, a medieval castle and settlement as well as Eliseg’s Pillar near Valle Crucis, Llangollen.

Bookings are now being taken for the event on Saturday, 23 February, when archaeologists involved in all these projects will be taking part in a Day School at Theatr Twm o’r Nant, Denbigh, where they will be telling us about what they have found and what they still hope to do.

Fiona Gale, County Archaeologist with Denbighshire, said: “There have been so many archaeological excavations taking place in the area over the last year, the spotlight really shone on north east Wales.

“The day should be a real treat for anyone interested in the heritage and history of the area.”

Archaeologists from Oxford University have been examining the hillfort of Moel y Gaer, Bodfari. Liverpool University has organised a training excavation at Penycloddiau and Bangor University has been involved at Moel Fodig near Corwen.

Added to this, archaeologists from Cadw, have been working at Hen Caerwys, Chester and Bangor University have been working at Eliseg’s Pillar and Wrexham’s Archaeologist, Steve Grenter, exploring Holt Castle

The day which starts at 9am with registration, tea and coffee and finishes by 5pm, costs £12 which includes a light lunch.

If you would like to attend, please contact the Countryside Service on 01824 708262 or modap.countryside& to book your place and receive further details.
