Hen Caerwys Deserted Medieval Village, Flintshire


CPAT photo, Hen Caerwys, 2011

Set in woodland 1.5km north-east of Caerwys on the limestone plateau between the Clwydian Hills and the Dee Estuary, a complex of low banks and stony platforms marks the sites of houses and fields that were functioning six hundred years ago. The area has been made accessible through careful management and clearance supported by Cadw. It was partially excavated in the 1960s, and now archaeologists from Cadw and the Clwyd-Powys Archaeological Trust are revisiting this complicated site hoping to shed more light upon the lives of the ordinary medieval people who lived and worked here.
