Monmouth Archaeology Society (MAS) will be conducting their 12th year of excavations at Trellech – one of the largest medieval settlements in Wales. The project’s primary aim is to record and better understand the development of the site.
This year, the project will focus on the formerly bustling main high street., with finds usually dating between AD 1245-1650.
MAS believe that archaeology should be enjoyable, educational and open to everyone, regardless of age or ability. School groups are also welcome to join in.
There is much to be discovered at this fascinating site, and participation is greatly encouraged. The excavation and educational activities are free, and donations are always welcome. Equipment and guidance are included.
Low-cost camping is available on site, but there is also alternative accommodation in the area. Payment is to be made for camping prior to the excavation.
