DIGGING THE CLWYDIANS
Local community archaeologists are finding new and intriguing signs of pre-historic human activity in the Clwydian Range. The exhibition shows some of the archaeological processes which reveal these fleeting traces of our distant ancestors.
As successors to the Heather and Hillforts project, the Clwydian Range Archaeology Group (CRAG) have been surveying and excavating in the Moel Arthur area for a number of seasons. In that time, tantalising glimpses have emerged of human activity, some of it probably medieval, and some appearing to go back thousands of years, possibly as far back as Mesolithic times. As well as showing what has been found in successive years of excavation, the exhibition explains some of the methods archaeologists use to investigate, gather evidence and record the results.
At weekends, while the exhibition is open, a member of the CRAG team will be on hand between 11am and 3pm to answer questions about the excavations and the archaeological processes involved. Between these times the finds from recent digs will be displayed.
CRAG have recently won the Marsh Award for Community Archaeology. This national award is sponsored by the Council for British Archaeology (CBA) and the Marsh Christian Trust. If you would like further information about CRAG, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The exhibition is sponsored by the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Sustainable Development Fund for the Clwydian Range and Dee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
