Clwyd-Powys Archaeology


Richard Hankinson


Richard has worked for CPAT since 1987, and has undertaken a full range of field survey and investigation projects on sites of all periods across the Clwyd-Powys region and beyond. For many years he worked on a series of upland landscape projects that were funded by Cadw. More recent work on Cadw-funded projects has included subjects as diverse as palaeolithic caves and twentieth-century aircraft crash sites. Richard has led a number of pan-Wales initiatives for all four Welsh Archaeological Trusts – including upland surveys and the assessment of cave sites. Richard also undertakes commercial assessment and fieldwork projects, working in Shropshire and Wales; he has also been leading fieldwork at Beacon Ring hillfort.
