Free Content Recent Excavation and Survey Work at Sudbrook Camp, Portskewett, Monmouthshire (ST 507873)

This report brings together the results of excavation and survey work carried out at Sudbrook Camp, Monmouthshire, during August and September 1998 and in November and December 1999. It also includes the results of an archaeological evaluation carried out in response to the proposal to construct a cycle track (May 1998), and monitoring of work undertaken to replace a fence line (March 1999), both within the area of the monument's western defences. The Coastal Archaeology Survey identified the coastal hillforts of Glamorgan and Gwent as a group of monuments under threat from erosion (Locock 1998). Work on the camp at Sudbrook forms the first part of a limited programme, approved and grantaided by Cadw: Welsh Historic Monuments, which was designed to examine and evaluate specific aspects of this class of monument.
