Heather and Hillforts Project in Wales
Denbighshire's Heather and Hillforts Landscape Partnership Project has arranged a series of free training days on archeological surveying techniques to en-courage people to learn more about their landscape. Run by archaeologists, the sessions will cover aspects of how to help discover the history of a site, while carefully conserving the area. The first session will take place on Moel Fenlli on August 30 with training days also at Caer Drewyn on September 2 and at Pen-y-Cloddiau on September 3.
Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Denbighshire County Council, and Cadwyn Clwyd through the Leader Plus Programme, the Heather and Hillforts Project has recently won a European Europa Nostra award for its research and study programme. Previous survey of the hillforts in the project area have found 90 previously unrecorded archaeological features within the hillforts.
The project has also involved a number of community consultations and a survey of the moorland in the Clwydian Range and Llantysilio Mountain has also been completed. The Heather and Hillforts Project aims to develop four programmes, the first focusing on the Hillfort heritage, increasing understanding and improving management of these important sites, and the second programme will relate to the Moor-land Heritage and improving its condition for conservation and agriculture.
The third programme will focus on increasing people's knowledge and understanding of this outstanding heritage as many people who already visit these sites know little of their significance. Lastly, the fourth programme will focus on increasing people's access to heritage.
