Cloddiad Capel Sant Padrig/ St Patrick’s Chapel excavation 2015   Leave a comment

Rhwng y 4ydd a 22ain Mai 2015, bydd Ymddiriedolaeth Archeolegol Dyfed, mewn cydweithrediad â Phrifysgol Sheffield, yn cloddio yng Nghapel Sant Padrig, Porth Mawr unwaith eto. Cloddiwyd y capel a’r mynwent, sydd yn ôl pob tebyg yn dyddio o’r 6ed i’r 11eg ganrif, am y tro cyntaf ym mis Mai 2014 ar ôl i nifer o gladdedigaethau cael ei datgelu o ochr y twyni tywod yn ystod stormydd y gaeaf.

Between 4th and 22nd May 2015, Dyfed Archaeological Trust, in collaboration with the University of Sheffield will be undertaking a second phase of excavation at St Patrick’s Chapel, Whitesands Bay. The chapel and early medieval cemetery, probably dating from the 6th to the 11th century, was first excavated in May 2014 after winter storms exposed a number of burials from the side of the sand dune, prompting the excavation.
