The Glamorgan-Gwent Archaeological Trust Ltd.

Archaeology in Wales


The Glamorgan-Gwent Archaeological Trust (GGAT) are extremely grateful to Merthyr Tydfil College for sponsoring the investigations and for providing continued support throughout the project. We are also grateful to Aecom and Interserve, who designed and built the new education centre, for their continued support throughout the excavation and post-excavation programme. We are particularly grateful to GeoArch who provided all of the metallurgical analysis and made the key refining discoveries, which elevated an already significant investigation to one of international importance. We are enormously grateful to iDEA for their generosity in both sponsoring and producing the ground breaking 3D animated reconstruction. We would also like to acknowledge Pendyrus Male Choir who gave kind permission for us to use their recording of Myfanwy as backing soundtrack to the animation.

Many organisations and people assisted us with our research and thanks goes to the Curator for Heavy Industry at National Museum Wales, the staff at Cyfarthfa Castle Museum, Glamorgan Record Office and Alan George ( for their help during the project.
