Exciting new developments with Project Eliseg. We are back for a season 3 in the summer of 2012 with scheduled monument consent from Cadw and supported by funding from (among others) the Society of Antiquaries of London, the Cambrian Archaeological Association, the Prehistoric Society and the Universities of Bangor and Chester.
The dig will involve students from Bangor and Chester universities as well as local volunteers. The dig will be led by the world famous Dr Gary Robinson (Bangor University) as site director. Gary will be supported by site supervisor Joanne Kirton (University of Chester) and media supervisor Joseph Tong (University of Chester).
Details regarding the dates of the excavation, the planned methodology and open days will be posted on this site as soon as the information becomes available. For queries, contact Professor Howard Williams: firstname.lastname@example.org
