CHERISH work has been continuing this week at Castell Bach, a coastal fort in Ceredigion. Last year we undertook a UAV survey of the monument to gather baseline data for future monitoring and this is particularly important for the western edge of the site which is actively eroding.
We’re now undertaking a programme of work to improve our understanding of the monument. On Tuesday in wonderful Spring sunshine and with the company of some friendly ponies we completed an archaeological survey using GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) and later this week a geophysical survey will take place which we hope will detect archaeological features buried beneath the surface.
Castell Bach is owned by the National Trust and is accessible to the public along the Wales/Ceredigion Coast Path. More information and images of the site can be found here:
