No significant finds in archaeological survey

Nothing of any archaeological significance has been found in the survey of the route of Llangattock Park's new accessible path.  While this is good news for path builders, as we know the new path will not damage anything of historical importance, it offers nothing to the archaeologists.

Richard Lewis of Black Mountains Archaeology said: "This mound is ripe for further exploration.  We know it is a burial mound, but crucially, we don't know whether it is a Neolithic Chambered Tomb or a Bronze Age Cairn.  It would be fascinating to explore it further."

Black Mountains Archaeology has recently conducted a community dig in Swansea, which saw teams of local people unearthing rare finds.  Llangattock School Children will attend a talk by Richard and his colleagues tomorrow at lunchtime, but a proper dig would have to be organised and funded at a different time.
