Following on from the fantastic success of the Operation Nightingale excavation at Barrow Clump last summer, the soldiers have returned for a second year. The 2013 excavations will explore new areas of this Bronze Age burial mound and aim to identify the extent of the Saxon cemetery.
Cadw teamed up with communities and the award winning soldiers from Operation Nightingale for an excavation of the possible tribal capital of the Silures - the Iron Age hillfort at Llanmelin Wood, Caerwent. Llanmelin Community Project aims to provide an opportunity for disengaged members of society, who do not often get many life-chances, to participate in archaeology and help Cadw gain a better understanding of one of its monuments.
