Rubicon Heritage commissioned by the Vale of Glamorgan Council to undertake a programme of archaeological investigation associated with the A4226 road improvement scheme.
Throughout the archaeological project Rubicon liaised with the National Museum of Wales, Cardiff University and Cadw with representative of all three institutions visiting the sites during excavation work.
The project has provided a wide range of very significant evidence for the archaeology and history of the area from early prehistory (3500BC) through to the Roman period (1st to 4th centuries AD).
Archaeological Work on Land at Five Mile Lane
Prior to and during the initial road works to improve the A2226, Rubicon Heritage Services Ltd investigated the Five Mile Lane Site.
Following the investigation, an initial archaeological report on the works undertaken between 2017-2019 has been published into an archaeological e-book report.
The report provides an overview of the site, its chronology, its landscape, and the initial findings relating to the people who lived and farmed the land from the late Bronze Age to Roman times.
It provides an exciting initial guide to what was found and our understanding of history at the site.
Following the completion of further detailed analysis by various experts, a more detailed academic study will be published in late 2022.
