THE Cosmeston Archaeology Project team, from Cardiff University School of History and Archaeology, will be excavating a small trial trench to examine the stratigraphy of part of the Manor House complex at Cosmeston Medieval Village on Friday and Saturday, February 27 and 28, and Sunday, March 1, from 10am-4pm.

The results of this exploratory work and other research will inform larger excavations on the site planned for June and July 2009.

The excavation site will be situated within the Medieval Village boundary but can easily be viewed from public footpaths within the park, particularly the concrete dog walk and Mile End road.
