Gray Hill Landscape Archaeology Project 2004, call for volunteers

Why not take part in an archaeological dig this summer?

The Gray Hill Landscape Archaeology Project in Llanfair Discoed, Monmouthshire, is looking for volunteers

Gray Hill or Mynydd Llwyd is a distinctive hill in south-east Monmouthshire just north-east of Caerwent, overlooking the Severn estuary. Known archaeology includes a stone circle and standing stones, prehistoric cairns, prehistoric field boundaries and enclosures, and medieval and post-medieval buildings and boundaries. There is also a large, D-shaped scarp-edge enclosure that may be Neolithic or Bronze Age in date.

Staff from the Department of Archaeology, University of Wales College Newport established the Gray Hill Landscape Research Project in 2002 to investigate the nature of past human activity through extensive survey, and targeted excavation.

In the summer of 2004 we will be continuing work on a prehistoric D-shaped enclosure, a prehistoric burial cairn and prehistoric field boundaries. Volunteers need have no previous experience of excavation, and all are welcome. All those interested should contact the project's director:
