"Archwilio" maps Welsh archaeological sites

Welsh heritage minister Alun Ffred Jones has announced the creation of the website Archwilio, an online database mapping archaeological sites and discoveries across the country.

“As well as big well-known sites like castles, churches and hillforts, you’ve also got little records of deserted long houses and small deserted medieval settlements, which could be just a ruined cottage site in the uplands,” said Marion Page, Historic Environment Records (HER) of Wales manager with Dyfed Archaeological Trust.
