What Romans Did for Us; ANCIENT ROAD BUILT CLOSE TO PRINCE'S HOME


Byline: ERYL CRUMP

CLEAR evidence of a Roman road has been found during an archaeological dig close to the home of a Welsh Prince.

A section of a metalled road on the line of the Roman road from Caerhun to Segontium (Caernarfon) was found during excavations at Cae Celyn, a field near Garth Celyn at Abergwyngregyn.

During a three-day dig locals joined volunteers from the Caer Alyn Archaeological Project and Wirral Archaeology to open up evaluation trenches to expose features at an important river crossing.

Archaeologist Phil Cox, from the Caer Alyn Archaeological Project, who led the weekend investigation, said: "The area is already well known for its rich diversity of monuments and history and the excavations will only add to this.

"The road section exposed during the excavations seems to support the theory the line of the Roman road was aligned with the turn-pike road built in 1789. The dig was also about trying to discover more about the function of the riverside enclosures. Work in these areas will continue over the next year to unravel its history.
