Early Celtic Societies in North Wales project

Introduction

The project is investigating the interactions between local small-scale societies and the emergence of complex societies between the Late Bronze Age and the early mediaeval period in North-West Wales by examining the settlement evidence in the area. Data is collected mainly from the local Historic Environment Record, provided by Gwynedd Archaeological Trust, and by our own fieldwork programme. Both the project and the ongoing programme of fieldwork are mainly funded by the University of Wales Publications and Collaborative Research Committee (formerly the Board of Celtic Studies), with additional support provided by Gwynedd Archaeological Trust and the Dermot McCall Bond Memorial Fund. The project also partially builds on and expands The Welsh Roundhouse project.
