Moel-y-Gaer, Bodfari is a small hillfort in a beautiful location at the northern end of the Clwydian mountains. It is about 5 miles north-east of Denbigh overlooking the village of Bodfari. In previous years we have carried out extensive survey work and excavation is ongoing. In 2016 we shall be working on trenches located on a roundhouse and through the south-western run of ramparts together with areas around the entrance. The rampart has proved to be spectacular with a stone-built box structure and a massive rock-cut external ditch.
Experienced supervisors will give training in excavation and recording methods so no previous experience is necessary. We cannot offer accommodation or food so any volunteers must be completely self-reliant. Access to the site is by climbing a steep hill so physical mobility is needed.
