Archaeologists Start Excavations On Burial Mound

Archaeologists start excavations on a suspected ancient burial site on which the Pillar of Eliseg stands, to try to understand the significance of this 9th Century monument and Llangollen landmark.

During the dig, David Crane and Sue Evans plan to give daily updates via the Llangollen Museum Facebook page, along with members of the dig team.

The public will be allowed on-site during an open day (31 July), between 11am-3pm.
