Join us in reconstructing the Victorian excavations here of the 1800’s. Uncovering medieval personal items learn their uses and record them as you go.

Castell Coch is a Victorian rebuild in its upper levels, whilst being on Medieval lower levels and foundations. Before this re-build took place a series of archaeological excavations were conducted by a G.T.Clark, whose work was published in 1850.
