Howard Mason, H E M Cool & Philip Macdonald
This project puts into the public domain the results of the excavations on the southern defences at the Caerleon legionary fortress in 1982. The area is in Guardianship and the excavations were conducted as a result of consolidation work on the walls being carried out by the Cadw's predecessor government agency.

The Marsh of time: the saving of Sutton Common

Henry Chapman & Robert Van De Noort

Sutton Common is described as a place where the social identity of the local community was reinforced through the construction of the physical representation of the idea of community, using a bank-and-ditch arrangement that resembles the defences used elsewhere, particularly at hillforts. No houses were...

Culture and Celtic Speech

John Koch
The 'Celticity Project' takes its impetus from the fact that those things termed 'Celtic' are today simultaneously of growing general interest, controversial (in both the academic and political arenas), and poorly understood. In this period, with the turbulent course of European integration on the one hand, and devolution to the cultural regions and nations within nations on the other, experts in Celtic studies are uniquely placed to illuminate the reality of the historical and cultural...
