Welcome to the Clwydian Range Archaeology Group

The Clwydian Range Archaeology Group (CRAG) is an independent voluntary association comprised of individuals who wish to research, share and disseminate information about the history of the Clwydian Range – an area of outstanding natural beauty.

The group was founded in 2011 to carry out, in a practical way, research, survey work and excavation on the Clwydian Hills under the supervision of professional archaeologists.

CRAG aims to develop wider participation in archaeological fieldwork while at the same time increasing understanding of the history of the area. To support this aim the Group aims to ensure that appropriate high quality training in archaeological field techniques is provided to all participants. The Group also aims to encourage the use of archaeology as a vehicle to deliver training in other skills.

The group has received a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund as well grants from the Sustainable Development Fund and the Clwydian Ranger AONB. In 2017 we were lucky enough to receive the Marsh Award for archaeology.

The Group organizes a series of archaeological digs throughout the year to help members develop and practice their skills in excavation. SEE OUR EXCAVATIONS AND SURVEYS PAGE FOR NEWS AND PICTURES FROM OUR 2018 DIG

There are also occasional open meetings and exhibitions each year designed to promote knowledge and interest in archaeology.

A great deal of what has been learnt by the group over the years is recorded here

Membership is open to anyone interested in the archaeology and history of the area.
