Volunteers join experts to uncover Roman road in Wales

For three days, residents of Abergwyngregyn, Wales worked alongside archaeologists to uncover a portion of a Roman road, which once ran from Caerhun to Segontium. The road runs near the home of 13th century Welsh prince Llywelyn the Great and his grandson, the first Prince of Wales. (photo)

 “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," said archaeologist Phil Cox, from the Caer Alyn Archaeological Project.
