Cosmeston in Austria

We have been quiet here at Cosmeston Archaeology of late. Despite radio silence, however, we have been working hard behind the scenes.

Beyond post excavation work in the labs at Cardiff University the project has produced an article in this month’s Current Archaeology (an issue that also features the work of fellow Cardiff archaeologist Professor Alasdair Whittle on dating the Neolithic). Two members of the team are also in Austria at the biennial Ruralia conference. Ruralia is:

an international association for the archaeology of medieval settlement and rural life. It provides a colloquium of current problems in rural archaeology from most participating European countries to strengthen the exchange of knowledge in, and the development of, archaeologically comparable studies, and to make archaeological results available to other disciplines

Professor John Hines and finds co-ordinator/PhD student Alice Forward will be presenting a paper on Friday (near Austria? Plenty of time to get across and attend!) titled:

Cosmeston, Vale of Glamorgan, Wales: multiple narratives of rural settlement and power

We will seek to bring you behind the scene low-down on this talk (along with other news) soon!

About Cosmeston Archaeology

Cardiff University School of History, Archaeology and Religion is working with the Vale of Glamorgan Council on an exciting project to increase community awareness and access to learning about Cosmeston Medieval Village and the surrounding area. Initially discovered in 1979 by local archaeology company GGAT, University excavations since 2007, involving students and the local community, have advanced our understanding of this complex medieval settlement. With excavations now entering their fifth year this blog will provide you the inside track with the exciting discoveries and finds as they come out of the ground.
