Excavating Medieval and Roman Caerphilly - despite its elaborate upper levels, Caerphilly Castle once housed a Roman Fort which was later used for medieval foundations.

Join us and uncover with your own hands a range of medieval and Roman treasures, and try and work out what you've have found! Learn to record these items in their archaeological context, and practice these methods that are still used today.

Afterwards, enjoy a tour of the castle, to see how it has changed over time.
