Creigiau Cemmais Round Barrow Cemetery 2009-12
Following the successful survey of spring 2009 described above, additional survey was carried out in the spring of 2010. This survey included a known round barrow and added to our knowledge of the sites discovered in 2009.
Following geophysical surveys in 2009 and 2010 four trenches were excavated across ditches of two large enclosures during 2012. The ditches were found to be substantial features, up to 4.5m wide and 2.7m deep, indicating a probable defensive function. As the ditch fills comprised clean, soft layers of re-deposited sands and gravels with very little charcoal or other occupation material it is likely that these ditches were not long-lived features in the landscape. Evidence for banks alongside the ditches was present in just one trench.
