Welsh Battlefields Survey

Archaeological Desk-Based Assessment on behalf of Cadw forming part of the Welsh Battlefields Project Pilot Study.

We studiedĀ 14 individual battle sites to provide detailed advice informing their depiction on Ordnance Survey mapping. A detailed account of each battle and its historic terrain informed our assessment of historical significance.

Our Research Team assessed national and regional archaeological databases, original documents and maps together with other relevant sources of information

Consistent with Cadw requirements we combined a comprehensive gazetteer of detailed evidence for each battlefield site with an assessment of its significance within the historical context
