Archaeology and companionship at Tregynon
On the 29th October Jeff Spencer gave a short talk illustrated with slides to the 14 members of Tregynon Good Companionsí Club at Tregynon Community
Centre. The topic was Local Archaeology and Jeff introduced typical sites found in mid-Wales and the Marches such as prehistoric barrows and medieval motte
and bailey castles. He also provided updates on recent CPAT projects such as those at the New Smithfield site, Welshpool and the Tesco site, Newtown. To
finish off there was a bit more information about a couple of sites of particular interest to the audience, Gregynog house and estate, possibly occupied
since the mid 15th century and Tregynon Moat, also known as Tithebarn Moat, a defended farmstead of medieval date.
