Our Archaeological Dig

The Dig, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and the Cardiff YMCA (1910) Trust will be led by professional archaeologists Dr Tim Young of GeoArch and Louise Mumford, Archivist of The Cathedral School, Llandaff.  


Local schools have booked sessions to take part and experience the fun and learning involved in an archaeological dig.   And they will learn about the history of the ‘city within a city’ from local storyteller, Dick Berry.  Llandaff 50+ and Llandaff Society volunteers will be working throughout the event.


There will be a viewing area for locals and visitors to see the dig in progress, and the chance to book a session to try digging or washing and identifying any finds. If you’re interested, please email thepound@llandaff50plus.com to book a session. Click to view available times.




Llandaff 50+ will be holding a community archaeological dig between Monday 16th September and Friday 27th September.   

After the Dig, the site will be redeveloped to become our Centre for Older People and a Heritage Information Centre for Llandaff, funded by Welsh Government and the National Lottery Community Fund.  The Centre will be an eco-friendly building with solar slates, a sedum roof and rainwater harvesting, to flush the accessible toilet.  With the help of architects Downs Merrifield, the aim is to produce a Centre for older people and Llandaff that is both financially and ecologically sustainable.
