A short introduction
A team of archaeologists from the National Museum and students from Cardiff University will be investigating an archaeological site at Llanmaes in the Vale of Glamorgan over the next four weeks. Over the past four years excavations have concentrated on a large Prehistoric midden (or rubbish dump) which may have been the focus of ritual feasting activity in the Late Bronze Age and Early Iron Age. This year the team are investigating a different part of the site where geophysics has revealed a large enclosure which may be of Prehistoric date. We hope to find out if it was in use at the same time as the midden. Different members of the team (and hopefully some visitors too) will be contributing their thoughts during the excavation.
