Welcome to Cosmeston excavations 2011

We are about to start our second week of work at the site. The first week was dominated by rubble from the medieval building but we are now beginning to glimpse the archaeology below. The star find from last week was a trowel from the original excavations in the 1980s, relative date was provide by a 10p coin!

It’s a later start for our Sunday work and after an exciting discovery yesterday (photo to come) we are all raring to go. It’s set to be a warm, sunny day, perfect for visits. Don’t worry if you can’t make it, we will be bringing you all the latest news and gossip from medieval Wales later today.

Students having to learn the hard way.


About Alice F

I am a PhD student at the University of Cardiff working on medieval and early post medieval pottery found in South Glamorgan. I have been particularly working on the ceramic assemblage from Cosmeston excavated in the 1980s. My role on this years excavation is to manage the finds processing and archiving. I will also be cataloguing the pottery retrieved during excavations at Cosmeston over the last three years.
