Regulars might be familiar with what was once known simply as a tumble down 19th century farm building, which rapidly turned into a vast 17th century structure. So vast did the building become, that we have so far had three concerted efforts at completing the excavation of the site, but to no avail. So, with time a factor for a number of reasons (not least the imminent homelessness faced by SWCHIR with the gradual winding down of the USW Caerleon campus), we are hoping that a fourth and final season will give us the final answers we need to be able to close the door on this particular archaeological site.
Now so far we have quite a small team in place, and due to a number of external factors, we have not been able to promote this heavily so far. However, we will definitely be digging during the week commencing the 27th, and as with previous years, there is an open door policy for anyone wishing to have a crack at some field archaeology. All are welcome, regardless of experience.
