A Research Framework for the Archaeology of Wales
From April 2008, the Research Framework for the Archaeology of Wales has found a new home. A revised and updated website can now be found at
The development of a Research Framework for Welsh Archaeology followed a conference organised by IFA Wales/Cymru and held at the University College, Aberystwyth in August 2001. The proceedings of this conference have now been published by the IFA as a British Archaeological Report British Series 343 (2003) edited by Stephen Briggs. Immediately following the conference a Steering Group was established to promote the development of the research framework. The membership of the Group aims to be as representative as possible of the various different sectors of Welsh archaeology. The Steering Group recognised that the structure of the research framework for Welsh Archaeology needed to draw heavily on the structure envisaged by English Heritage and published in 1996 by Adrian Olivier as Frameworks for our Past . This saw a research framework as comprising:
  • A Resource Assessment : an overview of the current state of knowledge and understanding.

    I. Overview: How did SCA-period Welsh clothing relate to that of other cultures?
    Question: So how do I "dress Welsh" in the SCA's period? I can't find anything specifically on Welsh clothing. Answer: Part of the answer is that relatively little information is available (compared to many other medieval European cultures), but part of the answer is that the question may be misguided. We modern people tend to have a concept of "iconic clothing" that clothing styles are closely and uniquely identified with specific cultures. While there is certainly geographic variation in clothing at any given time, it doesn't always neatly follow national borders, and may affect different classes in very different ways. Keep in mind that the concept of "national dress" or "national folk costume" is an invention largely of the Romantic movement and the 19th century. To the extent that we have information on the topic, the clothing worn in Wales seems to have been part of a continuum with that of their neighbors, of which England is the most obvious (and best documented) example. This isn't to say "Welsh people wore English-style clothing" any more than it would be correct to say "English people wore Welsh-style clothing", nor is it to say that there was no geographic variation even within England one can find regional variations in style. But one should not expect to find a major, clear discontinuity of clothing style on crossing Offa's dyke.

On story-telling
From Mrs Ann Currie Sir: As a lay person and 'general reader' of archaeology books, I heartily endorse your article 'Archaeology and the art of a good story' (September). Being mainly interested in prehistoric Britain, I would love writers to put flesh on the bones, roofs on the houses and food in the pots. Too often I find I'm reading endless pages about flint arrowheads or types of handaxes. I have therefore decided to write my own short 'stories' about what might have been going on at certain sites. The carved bones found at Creswell Crags, for instance, made me wonder who carved them, and why. What was going on in their minds at the time? Likewise the elk skeleton at High Furlong near Blackpool, which had been attacked twice, made me wonder how it had managed to escape twice. The antler headgear found at Star Carr made me imagine the sort of ritual the people who lived there would have performed. Some speculation, some 'what ifs' and some 'possiblies' are what is needed, if we are to be made interested in the ancient past lying all around us. Yours faithfuly

Learning, Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales
Archaeology is the study of the material remains of human beings, from the earliest times to the present day. Archaeologists look for all sorts of clues to help them to understand how people lived in the past. Through fieldwork, archaeologists at the Royal Commission help to provide a national overview of Welsh archaeology and historic architecture. Royal Commission archaeologists investigate different periods or aspects of the past through a programme of projects . For example, its industrial archaeologists are studying sites in Wales such as the Llangollen canal. Find out about the history of Wales in the Heritage of Wales section of this website. You’ll be able to read about the archaeology of the Uplands or the Welsh Coastline . Or, if you prefer, you can read about the different periods in Welsh history in the Across Time section or learn more about specific themes The technological developments of the last few decades have helped archaeologists to learn much more about the past and how humans have left their mark on the environment. Aerial Surveying is a powerful method of helping archaeologists to discover more about our history and to find new archaeological sites. You can find out how the Royal Commission uses different types of modern technology to help with their

15. NAZCA: An Open Air Nautical University!
Further commenting on Hu Gardarn Hysicion, Isabel Hill Elder writes that he, 'is commemorated in Welsh archaeology as having made poetry the vehicle of memory'.
A vast tapestry of geometry, consisting of lines, trapezoids, rectangles, triangles, glyphs, cairn markers, mounds, etc., is etched into the desert Pampa near Nazca, Peru. The intricate design work covers a region of about 400-square miles, with yet further pockets of similar geometry being found beyond the main groupings. Some individual lines run uninterrupted for several miles. The Nazca geometry has survived, mostly intact, for potentially thousands of years because of the arid, rainless conditions of the high desert, with the result that the greatest destruction wrought has been in the past 50-years due to mindless vehicle and foot traffic crunching over the lines. The Nazca lines, as they've come to be known, represent one of the most baffling mysteries of our age and our expert archaeologists cannot decipher either their meaning or provide any plausible, rational and acceptable explanation as to why they were made. The ancient Mediterranean trade route links to Nazca, Peru: Fingerprints of the Gods, Pottery from Egypt, which can be dated to 3500 BC, depicts ships with sails and wall paintings in the Nile Valley, dating to 4500 BC show high prow, long sleek ships. One well preserved, heavy planked ship, attributed to the Pharaoh Cheops (circa 2600 BC) is 150-feet in length.

This site was mentioned in the Welsh archaeology database as the only other long mound in Wales, along with Capel Garmon, apparently having the access to the chambers in the side rather than the end which was the usual practice in long mounds. Unfortunately the mound has been virtually destroyed and little can be seen. To reach it leave the A55 at Bodelwyddan and head south for a mile along the castle walls. When the road bends cross over the junction and at the next junction keep the church on your right. After about 3/4 mile the lane forks, take the left around a house and park in a space on the left. The chamber is in the field behind the house. There is a gate but no public right of way.

At the next junction turn left and after about mile park near a telephone box on the left.

    Richard Avent
    The following obituary first apeared in The Times on 9 August 2006
    Richard Avent: archaeologist who tended Wales's historic buildings heritage and was an authority on castles

    RICHARD AVENT was a key figure in the development of a distinctive approach to the organisation of archaeology in Wales which recognised the special needs of the country. He was also a distinguished academic, especially in castle studies. John Richard Avent was born in 1948 and educated at Reading Bluecoat School, from where he went to University College Cardiff to read archaeology. While a student there he excavated at Cadbury Castle, Somerset, under Leslie Alcock.
    Among the excavated objects was an Anglo-Saxon “button brooch”. This led to his study of the whole class of this type of brooch, financed largely by earnings from night shifts at a photocopying firm. He graduated in 1970 and gained his MA in 1974, his thesis work published in 1975 as Anglo-Saxon Garnet Inlaid Disc and Composite Brooches.
    In 1971 he was appointed assistant curator at Carmarthen Museum, and two years later became an assistant inspector of ancient monuments at the Department of the Environment’s Cardiff outpost. He stayed with the inspectorate in Wales for the rest of his life, and was promoted to principal inspector in 1984 and chief inspector in 1990.
