Castell Henllys and the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park

About the Project

The project incorporates field schools and training excavations that focus on research about Iron Age, Romano-British, post-Roman, medieval and post-medieval (historic) archaeology. Work is based at Castell Henllys and other sites in the region.

Castell Henllys is an award-winning interpretative archaeological site with reconstructed roundhouses based on the excavated evidence. Here, archaeological research, training and public interpretation are combined in a unique way.

Post-excavation work

Post-excavation work was supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) to provide research leave for the Summer Term of 2005 when Harold Mytum concentrated on writing up the excavations and reconstructions on the Iron Age site.

Radiocarbon dates for Castell Henllys have also been funded through a grant from Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and the AHRC.
