Moel-y-Gaer, Bodfari, is one of several hillforts in the Clwydian Range Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in North Wales, several nearby have been investigated through the Heather and Hillforts Project run by Denbighshire County Council.
These sites remain enigmatic with little evidence for date or function and the excavations at Bodfari aim to address these issues. We have carried out extensive geophysics and 2014 will be our third season of excavation. This will concentrate on an area where a roundhouse is positioned and on a trench across the middle western rampart and its close vicinity in the interior. Training in excavation and recording techniques will be given.
No accommodation or food can be provided for day volunteers.
